New DSP with smartphone control to rival the helix
https://www.pioneer-car.eu/uk/deq-s1000a

Forget a Helix... with only a graphic eq this thing is not even close to rivaling the $150 Dayton dsp.

In spite of that, looking over it's features and capabilities, it's clear this thing is meant for a completely different target market then a Helix or most other standalone DSPs.

The DSP is a VERY basic unit. It's intent is not to rival a Helix (or any high-end DSP).
It also has a built-in 4 x 50W amplifier. The market for this is basic OEM system upgrading.
I'm sure Pioneer has done a lot of market research, and found that install shops will promote this, because it's easy for them to sell and install (at a higher margin).

As for the new speakers... As soon as I saw they had a stamped steel basket, I stopped reading.

I don't hate it... I'm just pointing out the obvious:
  1. This DSP does not rival a Helix. Not even close.
  2. The market for this unit is mid OEM upgrade.
  3. The speakers are junk... let's be honest.

Just seems like a pioneer recievers network setting for stock systems

Those pioneer speakers have some very bright tweeters. And Im a metal dome fan but they were a little harsh. Woofers are ok but stamped basic woofers.

OK thanks.....but I will stick with my STAGE 4 GEAR.....Not saying the new stuff is bad....but without any kind of demo it is entirely open to interpretation .... and brand loyalty. It might have potential, but not without bias.
