Only have money to buy one, but which?

Postby altec » February 16th, 2021, 1:32 pm

Ok folks, I have money for only one item; helix dsp or good mid bass driver(trying to find good ones right now). Which would you pick? I am leaning to the DSP because I can change speakers but the DSP calls for doing over amp rack install. Between Helix DSP.3 and the audiocontrol dm 810. Which is better for SQ? Last question what is a decent midbass/midrange 6.5 driver ( Speaker has to be way cheaper than the DSP eh)? The tweets that I have can highpass at 2500hz and possibly 2000hz if the xover is steep enough. Thinking of raw drivers and this one is well spoken of and cheap https://www.madisoundspeakerstore.com/a ... ne-woofer/

What's your headunit?? Are you planning on running the tweeters active? Give a little insight on the system and your goals.

Both dsps if used correctly can give you basically the same result ( I currently have the dm608 and ain't touch time alignment yet). Just remember if you have a good enough headunit these days it can get you 90% there.

Do the DSP first, the woofer can always be swapped on the run.
