I just put in some ED 6.5's and I have them running on an amp at 75rms. If I have the bass freq. blocked off at whatever HZ, should I worry about the highs as well? Will highs through the speaker matter? If so, how do I block them out? Also, would I be better off using the amps crossover or the headunits? I have a clarion 935 dvd player.

Thanks

No, in a component set with a passive crossover the only thing you need to do is use a highpass filter.


Also, would I be better off using the amps crossover or the headunits?

Try both. See which one you like better. Heck, try using them together and see if you like the results.

Its not a component set, only the 6.5's. These are my rear fill.

Thanks for the fast response!

I see. In that case, you will likely want to lowpass the mid aswell. I would use the highpass filter on the HU, and the lowpass filter on the amplifier to bandpass the mid.
