there will be a place for an input on the crossover. and then you run wire from the mid to the cross over and then wires from tweeter to cross over. It is marked for each.

there will be a little package labeled "instructions" that comes in the box.....sounds like you need to read the entire set.

Then if you still don't understand come back and ask questions:D

For an amp you will run wires from the amps output to the cross overs input and then tweeters and mids from cross overs

exactly bud. for the most part, you really can't do anything thats just going to blow up your amp and speakers. Just read how to set the gains on your amp and you will have learned alot :)

WAIT! before stop reading thread.... so when i buy an amp for them, imma just buy a 4 channel amp that runs it at 4 or 2 ohm? or does that not matter with components??? and also do i subtract what my H/U's gonna put out per speaker? say it power my speaker wth 15 watts n mine put out 60.. should i find an amp that puts out 45 per speaker?/

No, you do not subtract the power from the head unit's power.. the speakers will be getting all their power from the amp, not the HU.

You should be giving those RSDs around 100 rms each by the way, not 60. I know thats what the website said or whatever but do some research and you will find some people give them 150 or even 200 rms without many problems.

alright, well thanks for the input, that makes it easier for me to understand, now my only question i have left to complete this stuff is what amp am i looking for? like say... a 2 channel at 100 rms x2 at 4 or 2 ohms? like how do ohms work with components, should i get the 100 at 4 ohms or 2ohms? also are their like certain amps good for like SQ, do i need to get A/B amp?

the rsd comps are 4ohm speakers, so get an amp that will do 100wrms x 2 at 4 ohms.

Thats not entirely true. alot of people giving them that much power say they sound great and like 2 weeks later come back here shrugging their shoulders wondering why their tweets are blown.....
