    Re: Impala Build

    make sure your hpf is set around 120hz and keep the treble and bass flat until you experiment more later, what other adjustments are you having trouble with?

    Would i set the HPF on the amp or on the HU? what differ does it make having the tweet on the A pillar as oppose to where i have it?

    set the hpf on your HU for the speakers to around 120 and your LPF on your amp to around ~80-90hz, Whats the point of components if you have them right next to each other anyways... it will sound better and separate the high/mids alot more

    It shifts the focus from your knees to your face...it is called imaging. And are you using your active crossover network in the 80prs, or just the passives that came with the comp set?

    Passives that came with the comps.

    As far as relocating tweets on the A pillar would i face them towards the windows, cabin each other? How high would i want them?

    Would it make a differ if the HU unit is in Network mode?

    now to work on the substage. Also been messing around with it on Active and sounds much better and seems a little more easier to tune except for the tweets they are too **** bright!

    Regardless thanks for the help guys!
