Even with high-end speakers, amplifiers and a superb tune, a Digital Signal Processor (DSP) is still necessary in order to achieve studio-like sound quality. If you're looking to achieve next level sound quality, a Digital Signal Processor is what you should be looking for.
Things to Consider
- Time Alignment
- This allows the installer to set timing of speakers so that the sound produced reaches the listener's position at the same time
- Customized Preset Tunes Based on YOUR Music Genres
- Most DSPs allow the installer to tune different presets
- This allows for the user to switch between different tunes on the fly, such as a tune for Rock genre or a tune for Rap genre!
- Smoothing of Frequency Response
- Instead of the standard frequency response provided by passive crossovers, the installer can tune your sound system through the DSP. This allows for much more linear frequency response, meaning you won't experience massive drop-off of dB at certain frequencies & will experience a fuller and more lively sound!
- Highly Accurate Crossover Settings
- A benefit of having a Digital Signal Processor for your audio system as opposed to an analog processor with knobs is accuracy.
- Digital Signal Processors use mathematical algorithms to alter the audio signal. You don’t want any overlap or underlap (a gap in the frequency response) in your tune that could affect frequency response.
