    ok - so reading on the web site and reading through the manual...and they don't even speak a word of this...

    how many EQ points? how much adjustability on each frequency? which frequencies? adjustable frequencies?

    what about xo points? there's just not much on these VERY important technical aspects in the manual or on the web site....which is a bit dissapointing as these are areas that are critical to determining if a piece is worth buying or not in this field.

    reading through the manual it's painfully obvious that who ever wrote it has very little knowledge of audio and processing because many of the terms are swapped and are used incorrectly...hrmmm

    there isn't any regulation on how many eq points you can have as many as you want. basically it has a certain amount of processing power. you choose what you need to. let me get you a better answer description...brb :-)

You only need 3 of these 4, 2 of the 3 connects useing a ribbon cable, and the only other connection uses wires for power. Totally downsizeable.

    On the downside, my amp is messed up JL 300/4 amp

    edit: You could also relocate the front panel to a more convienient spot... but it would be tricky splitting the panel up

    Please keep in mind that taking the Behringer apart increases the chances for radiated noise to get into the audio circuitry. Particularly when you extend the ribbon cables - you must use shielded ribbon cables. You will end up with a constant high pitched buzzing in the audio which doesn't go away until you unplug the front panel. Of course, if you don't USE the front panel, this isn't a problem.

    lol - I downloaded the software and had a look-see.

    Looks promising. I'm going to have to go out and copy down all my settings in the alpine currently and enter them into the software and see if it can handle all of the processing.

    I'll be needing two of these things though so I can get 8 channels of output...which means each unit would only need to do 4 channels of processing, which means the processing power limitation might not be much of a concern.

    So I'll be looking at around $830 for two of these things and then I've got to find somewhere to put them, then I'll have to custom make cables for XLR outputs...at 9v balanced out, that's 4.5v unbalanced...so not too much higher than the Alpine.

    However, a great benefit I think I see is that for linearity purposes you can set adjustments based on volume level? I'm not 100% but it seems that way.

    I'm planning on running a Hippo HiFi Bloat in this mix along with an analog POT...so it would look like this:

    Computer -> USB out to Hippo DAC -> Analog Pot for volume on RCA out of Hippo DAC -> Analog RCA into Behringer -> process signal -> XLR out -> RCA into amplifiers

    I'm going to have to see how the volume control before the Behringer is going to behave.

    I'm not 100% about the D/A/D/A conversions in this chain though. Yes, I could get rid of the DAC and just run optical in according to some posts I'm reading, but then I can't have an analog volume control. Since the Behringer doesn't allow for volume control this is going to be very important. From my experiences, once you've set many mobos to optical out or you're running bit-perfect out, you cannot use any sort of volume control on the PC...naturally - because it is no longer bit-perfect at this point. So then, where would volume control take place?

    This is a bit of a delima...

    well, you can get your hands on a the audiocontrol mvc or two and control the volume after the dbx. apparently vista handles volume control differently then the xp's kmixer so you may still be able to control the volume via the computer:
    http://www.diymobileaudio.com/forum/...ad.php?t=19568

    if you want to control the volume between the dac and the you always can buy my joshua tree stepped attenuator :-) hell... you could by my dac too! i'd give you a deal!!!

    how you get 830?

    I got mine for 269 at samash (A music store around here, but you can go anywhere that has pro audio)

    so thats 538

    Then the power supply's

    120 each, thats 240

    568+240=778, I'm sure you can get it for around that...

    edit: anyway, what music software you run? If you run road runner with winamp, you can have roadrunner set to control winamps volume... that could work?
