  • MiniDSP+MiniAMP

    I recently purchased a MiniDSP from a friend, and figured that it would be perfect to use in the house rather than in the car as he did. No xovers to design and build, plus I would have a DSP and EQ to play with. As I brainstormed for ideas to use this little bugger, I thought to myself that this would be perfect for desktop speakers. It needs a computer to make all the settings and such, so this can always be plugged into the computer and I can make changes on the fly without much work at all!

    I havent been up to date on all of the Mini products but as I checked out their site today, I found the MiniAMP. http://www.minidsp.com/products/miniamp

    Bridge Tied Load (BTL) - 2x20W @8ohms/ Single Ended (SE) - 4x10W @4ohms / 2.1ch mode - [email protected] + 1x20W @8ohms

    After hearing the 15wpc on my recent Aurbox project, I know that this guy should be enough power for near field use. I have a set of RS180-8's that I would like to build some nice monitors with to pair up with this Mini set.

    Does anyone have any experience with the Mini devices? Would I need any other plugin to make this work properly with a computer?

        Don't listen to me - I have not sold any $150,000 speakers.

          The speakers would have to be sensitive as the "clean" power output is limited to 10W.

            Youre exactly right, i already have the miniDSP. I thought I could save myself some time and money building a passive xover.

            Would you need much more than that? Granted I dont plan on powering 12" woofers or anything major. I know the highly efficient NS6's can get insanely loud just off of the 15wpc t-amp.

              Me? Yeah ( 10 watts doesn't allow for much crest factor )
              Small room, sensitive speakers and lower crest factor needs lowers power requirements.
              After all some are content with flea power SET amps hooked to horns.
