Single Amplification

Jim Johnson — Jul 14, 2017 10:46PM HKT

I am building a simple two way open baffle system. Wavering between passive and miniDSP. One huge factor driving my decision is that I do not want to use a separate amp for each channel. I want one amp driving both speakers. Is this possible with miniDSP 2X4?

miniDSP Agent

Hello Jim

To get started, best to have a look at the app note here: and here :
As you can see, an active 2way stereo system will require 4ch of amplification. If you want to have on amp driving both speaker (i.e. only stereo amp), then it’s a passive 2way system (i.e. crossover inside the speaker).
You can still use a miniDSP to do some basic EQ on the speaker though. It just won’t be a fully active speaker. Please check out the app note we linked above as a starting point.

Hoping this info helps
