RE: To DSP or not to DSP? Does DSP break the rules?

Well, you are using DSP like I use it. I have an open baffle single driver speakers, the driver can play down to 25hz, but open baffles start to roll off at about 80hz. So I use Roons parametric EQ to boost bass after about 60hz.

Works wonders and I get usable bass now down to around 28hz or so. The key is that this driver is huge and has lots of excursion so it can handle the EQ without breaking up.

I consider any losses I get in the digital domain to be miniscule compared to using a speaker with a crossover. So I think it is actually 'less cheating' than using a speaker with passive crossover components.
