I would always suggest getting the dsp version. Just in case you want to build anything else in the future. Like a ported cab. And for future resale value.

Sure you do. You could roll without one but you'd be missing out on the best part of a sealed sub. You've gotta boost the low end to combat the roll-off.

You’ll probably want dsp whether you get it built in or purchase something like a minidsp.

Absolutely.

Regardless of box type you'll need it to deal with room modes.

I've had minidsp and inuke dsp and I find the latter appreciably nicer to use.

Same here. The inuke DSP is fine in a pinch, but the Minidsp is more user friendly easier to integrate.

I'm pretty sure latter means the one mentioned second, or last. https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/latter

I'm not sure what a reson is, but there is definitely a reason and that would be PRICE.
It's a LOT cheaper than an FP14k + a miniDSP, or a FP14kDSP, or nearly any other pro-amp.

Beyond that, the FP14k outclasses it in terms of power production. Which is pretty much the main-objective of amplification, either total-watts period, or watts per $(value).

Yes, I like the inuke dsp better.

First things first, you posted this question in the DIY forum, so you do need DSP. The next issue is what you use for your DSP. Either behringer or minidsp will work very well. Behringer is a surprisingly useable and powerful DSP to be included in an amp, and wants for very little. Minidsp does, however, have some specific advantages that may or may not be important to you:

1. The ability to EQ below 20 hz
2. The ability to mute/unmute a sub without unplugging it from the amp
3. With the wi-dg, Wi-Fi connectivity vs a cable for each amp
4. Even without Wi-Fi, behringer would require a cable, or switching cables, for each amp, minidsp can control four channels with one cable
5. Multiple configurations
6. BEQ! (this alone is worth the price of admission)

I use both. I originally used the nx6000d dsp and then got a minidsp for the sole purpose of BEQ. I quickly discovered the above advantages. I still do use the behringer dsp for a few things even with a minidsp. I use the behringer for the voltage limiter function. I also find the additional timing channels to come in handy.

So, if your question is whether to get a dsp version of an inuke or not and you have no other way to apply dsp, get the dsp version!! If your question is minidsp vs inuke dsp, read above and decide if the differences are with it for you ... then still get the dsp version, it adds functionality and increases resale value for a nominal price increase

SPEAKERS: 3 x DIYSG 1099's LCR; DIYSG HTM 6's and 8's surround; 4 x RSL C34E's atmos.
SUBS: 4 x UM18-22 Mini Marty's and 2 x 21DS114-4 Devastators
SIGNAL CHAIN: Denon X4400; Minidsp 2x4 HD; 2 x Jensen Iso Sub 2RX; 3 x NX6000d.

I personally load the protective high pass and limiters on the iNuke, then shape the response on the mini dsp. I have both, but if I had to choose one or the other I would choose the onboard dsp.
