Just read the thread. It's clear. He's a old-school, big iron amp fellow. In his opinion nothing else works. Overbuilt to look good on sine wave tests, regardless that it has little forbearance on actual performance considering the crest factor of music.

And then there is some weird twist about being "green". That seems a bit hypocritcal to me since those old-school amps are less efficient so you waste more power using them.

Just because there is a knob doesn't mean you should turn it.

Just built two ported mini-Marty subs and plugged them into my new Peavey IPR2 7500 DSP. The output is about 1/4 of what I would expect. When trying to add a HPF, the lowest it will let me go is 31 Hz. Per the mini-Marty thread, I should set it down close to my port tuning freq (i.e 17 hz). LTD02 suggested in a Behringer thread to add an eq setting with a negative db to get by the Behringer's 20hz limit. I tried this as well, but didn't seem to noticebly work.

Does anybody know the right settings for the DSP to be used for subwoofer duty? Thanks, Rhino
