Well, why don't you explain what it is you think I don't grasp about it?

I think it's you who doesn't grasp the concept. The software plugins are just digital emulations of what radio and musical instrument amp designers have been doing since the 1940s. See section viii, page 14, here:

That you can emulate and tweak an effect that would otherwise take a lot of specialized equipment and/or loudspeakers, and have it work on virtually any loudspeaker/headphone.

That's the whole point of DSP in the first place. It's not to do something that can't be done using the right equipment, it's that you can have one piece of equipment that can do a lot of things, and that you can tune and combine those effects to suit your purpose.

miniDSP does not have an effect that does this particular effect yet hence the request as it would be of use to a lot of people.

Oh, I see, well in that case you might want to try contacting MiniDSP directly with your suggestion. It's a proprietary closed-source system, you can't inject your own code into it, so there's nothing any of us can do about it.

What will be your next plug-in?

Saturnus,
More than 3 years later, I'm now researching as well and wonder if you got anywhere? Any guidance would be appreciated! Thanks!

Sounds like something that is interesting too for an open baffle . . .

Psychoacoustic bass enhancement
Had a chance to re-read this thread (as I would anything with "psycho..."). And here's what I think.

Ordinary acoustic music doesn't need the trick boosting because the harmonics of an organ pedal note are already present and already signify to your ear when the fundamental is played whether or not it is actually sonically emitted from the sub.

But might be helpful for synthetic sounds like lots of other other-worldly enhancements cooked in the studio. It is all synthetic so who cares?

But it would be good to spare a 6-inch subwoofer from being fed 30 Hz notes that it doesn't know what to do with. Like sub-sonic filters of yesteryear (for vinyl recordings), good to filter out the noise.

When DIYers strive for great bass, we mean something we feel in our chest and on our feet on the floor and that signifies to us the present of profound low bass. The circuit described here does not bring those DIYers any closer to that great bass feelin'.

Ordinary EQ (esp fine-tuned DSP EQ) can tweak the bass to the taste of most folks.

Ben
