I am wanting to grow my system a bit and I have been thinking about changing out my Nak EC-302 crossover for a DSP (I have a need to bandpass my front midbass [Front 3-way] which the EC-302 will not do).

My CD8051 has a Coax out that was intended for the Eclipse Commander DSP component which is fairly limited in features by today's standards.

I want to confirm that I can continue to use my head unit and use the Coax Out to a modern DSP that supports coax in.

I am also open to any other suggestions you guys might have.

Again, my goal is to have more control over my front stage. Current set up in sig.

Thanks for the reply. It is a single black rca with a tag that reads "Digital Out". What I do not know is if the Eclipse commander has to be plugged in to enable that digital out and if it sends a full signal out.

I suppose I could try and test its output with a meter, but I do not know what values to look for as I don't have a scope.

I mean, if you want I'd be willing to test it for you if you want to send me the unit (if your comfortable with that). I have plenty of dsp's at my disposal and can see if it works with any of them. I think it should work, but I have zero experience with the eclipse stuff.

It will work.

The 39011 can be controlled by that unit and is pretty ok basic DSP. I think 9 bands, TA, crossover, etc. It has a cool feature of auto leveling frequencies so nothing comes out screaming at your ears. Does dolby 5.1 which I like in a car when properly implemented.

However it is basic. So if your going balls out talk to Skizer about one it his DSP'S

I really appreciate the offer. I can buy and test myself, I just thought maybe someone here had tried it before.

I thank all of you for the information!
