Help a newb with going active...
I'm currently not but i'm prepared to. I'm searching for some reading material before I start asking questions so, post up your favorite/most helpful threads/links for me to dissect.
My main question is,... Do I need a dedicated external crossovers or will the functions from the 80prs be sufficient? (line outs from HU directly to amp, then amp to speakers, nothing in between.)
Also,... to bring the sound stage up and out I plan on building pods to house the tweeters with a 2-3" midrange directly below it, just outside the A-pillars. It will be built onto the factory panel that covers the bolts for the mirrors. Therefore it will then have a 3-way setup with the 6.5's in the factory location.
As far as the 80prs goes, i'm currently in standard mode. With network mode I had some volume issues that quickly became complicated. Out of a max volume of 62 I had to turn it up to ~50 to achieve normal listening volume.
I'll try my best not to bug you all with everyday questions but any and all help will be much appreciated.
