  3. Pb-2000 output much lower when using MiniDSP

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    Hello everyone, I recently bought two SVS pb-2000 subwoofers to try out to see if I want to upgrade from the dual pb-1000's that I currently run. I've had some success taming some massive peaks that I get in my listening room with my MiniDSP 2x4 (not the HD version) and my dual pb-1000s. I...
  4. Using REW to create XOvers for miniDSP

    REW Forum
    Hello Reading through the miniDSP 4x10 HD manual and several of the articles they have, there are references to the plug-ins that show how to create Basic and Advanced cross-overs - advanced using biquads. This seems to be one of the primary uses of REW for miniDSP but I am at a loss as to how...

  7. Yamaha Advantage with miniDSP Hardware

    System Setup and Connection
    I have a Yamaha Advantage RX-A 3050 that uses YPAO, not YPAO R.S.C. I will be setting up my Home Theater as an 11.4 configuration with all Klipsch speakers and subs. In researching your recommendations I can see how the miniDSP 2X4HD would be a good tool to set up the four subwoofers. From...

  9. Has anyone used a miniDSP 2x4HD/DDRC-24 as a pre-amp?

    Audio Processing
    Has anyone used a miniDSP 2x4HD/DDRC-24 as a pre-amp? I've been researching into adding room correction to my 3.1 system (my trusty Arcam Alpha 10 DAVE & 10P3 power amp, M&K S85 LCR speakers, and a SVS 20-39 sub). It occurred to me that I could simply use a miniDSP 2x4HD or DDRC-24 as a...

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    Hi all, I am having a lot of fun using my MiniDSP 2x4 to flatten the response of my sub! I just have a couple of questions.. I have a pretty serious peak to tame, as well as a far less serious but still correctable dip. Is it going to cause any problems if I use two filters at the same...

    Hi everyone, Do someone has feed-back using a miniDSP OpenDRC-An, REW and rePhase? Since I want to stay with my passive filters on my 3 ways stereo project and the use of vinyl, I am seriously considering this option to play on the phase and equalization. VK
