The mid-low and mid-high is the 2 crossover points for the bandpass for the mids. My clarion is a 4-way with crossover points for the sub low, mid and high. That was the only thing i didnt like about the alpine and eclipse active crossovers, no sub crossover.

if you're asking people what their xover freq's are, thats completely vehicle/speaker dependent...

thats really high. the only reason i could see them being that high is if the tweets are in the a pillar, and that would mean u'd need midranges that could go that high to meet up with the tweets.

my eclipse has a dedicated sub crossover :uhoh:

What other decks dont have the the Clarion has is capability for a 3way active fronstage-in which you can xover your subs/ midbass/midrange/highs if necesary

That was what i was talking about in the active mode. Does your new eclipse have a 4-way active now?

Eclipse 8053
Highs HP@ 3.15khz
Mid LP@ 3.15khz
Mid HP@ 63hz
Low LP@ 63hz (I dont currently have subs but that is what it was and will be)

What you were 'talking about' and what you posted are 2 diff things. Eclipse/Alpines do not have individual channels dedicated for midbass and midrange as the DRZ does. But all have sub xovers. As far as 4way active can only be achieved with a dedck w/ 4 preouts (only one i know of is the drz) or external processing.

i agree.....other people's tuning does nothing for your speakers, in your car.

I guess what i was getting at is when i had the eclipse in 3-way mode i didnt have any non fader volume control.
