just ordered a 8 channel Dayton DSP .In my system I have 8 speakers and 1 powered RF P300-12 powered by 2 amplifiers a 2 channel and 4 channel . right now I am active for my rear speakers and front dash 3.5s . My front component T2652-S are using the passive x overs . This is probably a stupid question but upon installing the Dayton DSP I should remove the Rockford x overs that components are hooked up to right? I'm asking because I have the x-overs hooked up to where I just have the tweeter speaker input powering it and not independent mid and high channels from amplifier to crossover. Since I am powering the components with a RF Punch 200.2 2 channel amp. If I lose the passive crossovers going to the full active Dayton DSP and I only have 6 channels of amplifier output with the 2 channel and 4 channel amps (which was okay with the passive t2 crossovers) but now I can't just tap the speaker line of the tweeters to the 2 channel amp for the mids because the DSP output crossover point wouldn't be correct . I am on a budget do I have anyway of getting around replacing the 2 channel amp for a 4 channel without losing to much performance or is this my only option? Not sure if I could use channel 1 for tweeters and channel 2 for mids on the 2 channel amp so they could be crossed over correctly with DSP just until I'm able to purchase a 4 channel amp? Hope that all made sense lol. If anyone can help out with any suggestions would really appreciate it Thank you!
