Default 2012 dsp suggestions for stereo upgrade
I recently upgraded the stereo in my 2012 supercrew.
I decided on Diamond Audio again for this build where I have used their stuff on 2 previous vehicles. FJ cruiser and Subaru. Both sounded excellent. For the raptor I chose.
Diamond Audio
H65s speakers for front and rear
2 12Ē shallow mount diamond subs
HX1200.5 amp
Audio control lc7
Still the music is lacking a full sound to me. sounds like itís missing certain frequencies. Any suggestions? Do I need another dsp or add in an equalizer. Or is there a way to bypass the factory amp that may be the culprit.

I used a JL Audio Cleansweep and Signal Summing device in mine. Apparently the factory Sony unit varies the EQ through the volume range. With the JL unit you play a special calibration CD and the DSP in the JL Unit make the signal flat again. JL Audio has since replace the two units with an integrated one. If doing again I would buy the 6 channel version so I could get front rear fade.

I am using the factory head unit. I have been looking at different dsp devices and keep seeing post about people using different products and still having trouble getting a clean or flat signal to the amp. I have looked into pac audio unit because it goes in before the factory amp, but my buddy who owns a car audio store says pac is junk

i am partial to the mosconi 6to8. we do tuning for sq competitions and the mosconi is our processor of choice due to the adjustments available.

I sent my factory nav unit off and had it reprogrammed to put out a signal that could be fed directly into an aftermarket amp. It sounded like shit. I bit the bullet and replaced the factory HU with an aftermarket. I never did try a sound processor. I guess they work pretty well but I am a skeptic after hearing the crap coming out of the factory HU I just don't see how you can replace whats missing and have it sound as good as an aftermarket unit.
