    Icon32 Lack of balance between front components and rear 6x9's. Suggestions?

    Power: RF Power 851x highs, RF Power 1001bd lows.
    Deck: Alpine CDA 9805
    Speakers: Lows - 2 Audiobahn Natural Sound 12's, DVC
    Highs/Mids - Audiobahn ABC 600T components, front
    Audiobahn 6x9's rear
    Highs all run 4 ohm stereo.

    Problem: Having trouble getting front components to keep up with rear 6x9's. Crossovers for front/rear set at 140. highs at deck set flat, 12.5k, (dropping to 10k seems to put out too much hiss) bass flat, freq set at 100, bass eq set to 4

    My problem is that I can't get even sound up front from the component set. Rear 6x9's set at lowest gain setting at amp still overide front components set at 1/3 gain. Cranking the gain on the front much higer, and the tweets start to distort. I know those components can take a hell of alot more power than the 6x9's, but like i said, cranking the gains up on the components to the point where they seem to be able to keep up with the rear, and the tweets start to hiss and distort. Looking for some advice on how to alieviate this problem. Diffrent crossover settings at amp? higher treble settings at deck? Thanx:P

    Well right now I have 5 1/4's in my front and 6X9 kappas in the back. I'm running them off of a PPI 65X4. I have all gains the same but I have my fade more to the front. From what I have learned from this site the next time I buy a system I will go with high end front componenets and leave the back empty. Most of the people I have talked to seem to think this sounds better. A few have won competitions like this as well. Maybe you could look at selling the 6X9's and getting higher grade fronts?

    Just my .02 cents



    NEVER buy from Dealer Cost Car Audio, ask me why

    Rainbow SLC+Tru 4.65 + RF 3sixty.2 = yum.

    Thats a very good suggestion....I don't have rears at all myself. I will offer this one suggestion that you could try right now though: Are your rear speakers (6x9s) in stereo? If they are then wire the two together in series(mono). This will quiet them down quite a bit and take alot if not ALL the highs out. If they already are in series then I would suggest removing them.
