DSP vs. Non DSP?

Hi everybody:

Just an stupid question:

What are the differences between a X5 with DSP System and a X5 without DSP System?

Thank you.

Best Regards.

One has the premium audio system with the Digital Signal Processor (DSP) and one does not. The DSP system also includes a sub woofer unit in the rear access panel.

Does it really make a big difference? I mean, to the average guy, not an audiophile?

Contrary to the post above, it is the general opinion here on the board that the DSP audio is not worth the money you're paying.

The DSP audio has dual 4" subs in the back, which still do not deliver enough bass. It uses the same speakers everywhere else, but with a slightly more powerful amplifier, and the DSP processor itself.

I don't know - if you invested that $1000 elsewhere, you might come out with something which is a true "audiophile" experience.

Or at least something that sounds like bass.

The 2005 DSP system uses dual 6" woofers that can't physically play the notes they're being sent (their mechanical resonance is about the same as their lowpass crossover point, 80 Hz). The door speakers are better at low notes...

The echo effect sounds like everything I hate about live music in a bad venue.

There's no grille in front of the subs.

The rears have two huge holes - 400-800 Hz and 5000 and up.
]
I hear systems every day. This system seems very expensively engineered and built, but terrible for what costs must be sunk into it.

So would a DSP system be significantly improved just by changing the subs? Or are you saying ALL the speakers in a DSP system are incorrectly sized? What about the NON-DSP system speakers?
