DSP subwoofers vs non-DSP
I might be in the market for a new subwoofer for a music only application - in future, so no need for advise now. I have often seen mention of some subwoofers having DSP and others no DSP. Those discussions have little to no information on the pros/cons of DSP. At least I found none. Reading between the lines, it looks as if DSP mainly affords protection from blowing the subwoofer while non DSP give you more control over setting the subwoofer for different controls like dampening, although I do not know what that does.
I am wondering: 1) what are the pros/cons of DSP, 2) what Q controls and other settings some subwoofers have etc do for the sound and set-up and can you not do that for DSP subwoofers and 3) what are some examples of popular subwoofers that are and are not DSP - I think the PSA and SVS are DSP and the Hsu and Rythmik are not, is that right?
