What passive xover will you be using?

you can use the 3 way crossover in the 880 for the HU speaker outs too :fyi:

I wouldn't do it. Unless you want to risk of frying the 880prs.

nG

actually, yes.


i had mids on the front set of speaker outputs and the mid xover in NW mode worked with the mids off the HU.

robin told me u can hook tweets to the rear speaker outputs from the HU and the high crossover will control the rear speaker out puts (where the tweets are hooked)

Just wanted to make sure.

I've messed with the 880, but never owned one.

Weird they use the REARS for tweet?

i mean will it really be seeing 2 ohms?

i wouldnt do it, i told u what i did with my eminences lol.
they seem to work now, but that day, they sounded all weird. maybe just needed a reset like philips tvs.

i already gave you my 2 cents. either one @ 4 ohm, or both tweets @ 8 ohm.

or try 2 ohm and if it breaks, do the Circuit city thing. hahaha

I'll stick with my Alpine 9835.

I won't give it up for much.

The 880 is the only current mainstream, near price-point HU I see that I would consider.

Next, I'll be using my PPI DCX730 and whatever HU I want ;)...

i like the simple look of the 880, yet it packs alot of great features.
