These are some of the most common questions about our SoundstageDSP™ for the BMW 2-series. Still don't see what you're looking for? Ask Us and we'll get you an answer lickity-split.
Do you replace the rear speakers?
No, and if you value your sound quality and imaging (and your wallet!), you won't either. Click here to read our white paper on the evils of rear speakers.
Why do your DSP systems still include the passive crossovers? Don’t the amps/processors provide the same functionality?
This is a great question. The answer is that they do, but you don't have access to the front midrange and tweeter individually - in the BMW OEM systems they are wired in parallel on a single amplifier channel, and there is only one set of wires running into the door. Unless you want to start cutting wires AND running wire into the doors (NOT a fun or easy task), you have to keep them on a single channel and you'll need a passive crossover. Our competitors - all of them - do the same thing the OEM systems do and simply use a capacitor on the tweeter and nothing on the midrange. I can't tell you how detrimental this is to your sound quality. In addition to having midrange and tweeter duplicating everything above the crossover point, you also have no low pass on the midrange and completely expose the breakup mode. The breakup mode is the point at which the driver cone stops behaving as a piston and basically starts wobbling/rippling/etc - this is very bad, especially at any kind of volume. On top of that, having only a capacitor on the tweeter is just a 1st order/6dB per octave slope. This means that to adequately protect the tweeter at lower frequencies you have to push the crossover point very high. This is exactly what you don't want to do - you want to have that tweeter playing as low as possible. You want as much of the higher frequency range coming from the tweeter as possible - the tweeters are much better positioned (and suited) to producing these frequencies. They are up high and pointed towards you (i.e. more on-axis). The midranges are further off access and lower down. In the OEM (and our competitors) systems, the tweeter crossover point is at about 8kHz. In our Soundstage systems it is around 2kHz. The difference this makes can not be overstated.
