 MG 5072

miniDSP is proud to introduce the new flagship C-DSP 8x12 DL in-car digital audio processor. Dirac Live® room correction, a 400 MHz SHARC floatingpoint processor and 32-bit AKM converters with –107 dB THD+N specification deliver pristine high-resolution audio in any cabin environment. Comprehensive I/O includes six differential low-level analog inputs for low noise pickup, high-level inputs for connection to head units with power amplification, and stereo SPDIF and TOSLINK digital inputs. On the output side, 12 RCA outputs combined with a full eight channels of Dirac Live processing make the C-DSP 8x12 DL adaptable for active crossover systems as well as multichannel/surround installations with subwoofer integration.

Also included is miniDSP’s powerful, easy-to-use audio processing: parametric EQ, compressors, adjustable time delay, crossovers up to 48 dB/octave, and an advanced matrix mixer with rear/center capability. Four complete configurations are stored in flash memory for recall with a wired or infrared remote. Hardware features dedicated to the vehicle environment include an on-board isolated power supply, remote trigger input/output, a wired remote for dash or console mounting and a microSD card slot for offline configuration.

Pretty amazing piece of gear. Make sure you look at the correct instructions and follow them in detail. I've only done one calibration so far, and it was a huge improvement over the active crossover & EQ it replaced. My system is tri-amped, with about 1kw of rms power, and it sounds clean, & crystal clear, with tight bass even at ridiculously high output levels.
