View Full Version : Components are not working right! Getting pissed.

Ok so I just wired my components up and I am having trouble with them. I dont think the woofers are producing any sound at all but the tweeters sound fine. Any clue what that could be? I have a hi pass filter on my amp should that be set to high or off? I also wired the tweters to the +3db port instead of 0db not really sure what that even does...

The +3db boosts the tweeters by 3db across the entire range that they're playing. As far as your HP filter on your amp goes, it shouldn't be any higher than 80hz or so in most cases. What comps do you have? Is the crossover wired correctly?

I have Rainbow SLC 6.5s and the crossovers are wired correctly I think is there any diagrams that show how they should be wired?

Do you have a picture of the crossover?

Cant really see them in there but thats them, I wired the woofer ports to the woofers, Tweeter to tweeters and input to the amp.

Weird. Check your amps settings and make sure you didn't accidentally set something wrong. Also, try the tweeter in the 0db spot and see if that makes a difference.
