Like the title says. Here's my setup until I get cash flowin again

Front stage: Polk MMC6500
Rear Stage: Pioneer 6x9 4 way and JBL GTO 427
Substage: Kicker l5's 1 10" and 1 12"
HU: Clairon DXZ955MC
Front and rear amp: Kx600.4
pioneers and jbl's are bridged together.
Sub amp. Hifonics BX605.

I was tryin to play around w/ the HU today but it lets me boost certain hz and take away from others. I'm haven't a clue on how to set it all together. I listen to trance/techno, a little rap, a lil country, and some rock. I just want it to sound good altogether. If someone could steer me in the right direction i'd really appreciate it. Keep in mind its all in a 99 firebird.

um, you dont just attempt to go active. unless you actually know what "going active" actually is.

I know its using an active x-over which my HU has. I want to know how to use it.

Am I reading this wrong or does it say that you have two sets of rear speakers, and two different size subs hooked up?

once you go active, you don't go back :fyi:

IMO, it's the only way to go now that I've done it lol.

Oh, and the Clarion is an excellent HU to go active with. PM me if you need help.... because I'm in the same boat.

Alright, I'm starting to get the drift of this active setup. I need to ditch my polk comp x-overs. and my rear speakers. Get new ones or none at all. And spend some time playing electrician.

Pick a sub size too. Rear speakers are subjective in their use.

Active pretty much means you're going to be using all four channels of that amp. Unless you feel like running three amps, I'd scratch the rear speakers altogether, unless you want HU power.

kill the 4" speakers in the back those get drowned out by your subs. up to you if you want to keep your 6x9's in the sails. i personally just run components up front and am using the stock subs in the sails as midbass with a 12" sub for getting those lower notes.
