I'm looking into the MiniDSP 2x4 to use as a crossover to high pass my mains and low pass my sub. The specs state the max input voltage on the 2x4 is 2.0 Vrms (rev b).
I'm currently using a DSPeaker Dual Core as a DAC & Preamp, which has a max output voltage of 7.2 vrms. Given the high potential output voltage of the DSPeaker (7.2 Vrms) and the max input voltage on the minidsp (2.0 Vrms), are these two not going to play nicely? That is, is the likelihood of over-driving the minidsp's inputs and causing a ton of distortion and clipping very high?
If it's relevant, the volume setting I usually run the DSPeaker at is -40 to around -20.
I wan't planning on doing any room correction with the minidsp, just using it as a crossover to integrate my sub (24db/ high pass and low pass).
Thanks for any inputs!
