    Help setting the HPF and LPF on my amp

    I am running my mids with my amp, and I need help with setting the HPF and LPF. Do I only need to adjust the LPF for mids or HPF also? I was thinking LPF would be around 63Hz to 80Hz. Any help? Thanks in advance all.

    just mids, tweeters are going straight to HU. Now the mids are going to the amp, my question is do i only set the LPF setting or the HPF setting also?

    Re: Help setting the HPF and LPF on my amp

    well active is actively crossing over both the mids and tweets. mids should be band-passed. tweets should be high-passed.

    i'm just trying to figure out what you're trying to do. i don't really understand.

    well thats why i asked how the tweeters are gonna be crossed because that all doesn't really make sense.

    Hi-pass.
    say you set it to 60hz, it will play everything ABOVE 60hz

    Low-pass
    Set it to 60hz, it will play everything LOWER than 60hz.

    You adjust which ever filter you decide to use.. I would use the hi-pass
