Hey, this question may be silly but..

On my Kicker KX 700.5 I have two settings. Low-pass and high-pass.

What should I set it to with my 6x9" speakers connected to it? Low-pass og high-pass?

You need to highpass them. The highpass filter will attenuate frequencies below the crossover point and allow the higher frequencies to pass through unfiltered.

Jep. High pass. Low pass is for subs mainly.

I have read in the manual that low-pass are for woofers.

So 6x9" aint a woofer right?

But here is my setup:

High frequencies: I have a set of regular speakers, they are on high pass.

Mid frequencies: A pair of 6x9", now set on low-pass. (this is what my question is about)

Sub frequencies: Two 12" subwoofer.



But I am going to remove the sub for a couple of days. I need some bass from my 6x9".
That's the reason im asking this. High-pass, or low-pass? :) (yes, asking again with the situation explained)

6x9's are just like 6.5's, 5.25's...not subs.

There for mids and highs. So high pass it like you did the front. And lowpass the subs.

Just set the high pass around 80hz. That should leave you enough midbass thump tell you drop the subs back in.

Still highpass. 6x9's weren't meant to play bass (well, most of them weren't).

Okey, thanks all :)

Ah, I see. :)

And by the way, what should the crossover for the 6x9" be when I have the sub?
Like 130hz?

Thats all up to your tastes really. 60hz and up. But being that they are 6x9's I would set them at around 90hz with your subs in. And adjust it a little if need be.
