Agree with above. Also, doesn't the DSP work best in the digital domain? in other words:

This might be little off-topic, but was curious about these speakers (PSA MTM-210). For two 10" woofers, their low frequency is not that low (70 Hz). There are designs out there with smaller woofers...

Enhancing bass - bi-amp with active equalization vs./plus sub?

OK, I suspect I know the answer but here goes:

Ha-1
