    The head unit and amp should have a crossover built in of your talking about separating frequencies



    "When I listen to a stereo loudspeaker playback in my room and an auditory scene has formed in my mind, how would I know that what I hear is an accurate replica of an auditory scene that could be had at the recording venue? Or more generally, that this is an auditory scene that could have existed at all?"

    Re: do you need a cross over to run 2 amps at once

    tell us make/model of the head unit and the amps. better if you include pics of the amps controls.

    most amps have crossovers. for the most part you just use a high pass crossover on the speakers (around 80-100Hz) and a low pass crossover on the sub(s) at the same point as the speaker amp.



    have you been helped by me? i'd love to know. shoot me a PM.

    What speakers also.
    Lpf blocks highs
    Hpf blocks loWs.
    Band pass filter (bpf) let's a RANGe of frequencies through to a speaker.

    Sub uses lpf. Usually set at 80hz. This means the filter will block anything over 80hz from going into you're subs.

    mids.
    Are they coaxial or is it a component set.
    Coaxial speakers usually have hpf set at 80hz. This means anything under 80hz will not pass to the speakers, and the crossover built into the speaker will hpf the tweet in the middle.
    If you have a component set, usually the mid is band passed at 80hz-3.5khz, and the tweet hpf is set at somewhere around 3.5khz.

    Make sense?



    "When I listen to a stereo loudspeaker playback in my room and an auditory scene has formed in my mind, how would I know that what I hear is an accurate replica of an auditory scene that could be had at the recording venue? Or more generally, that this is an auditory scene that could have existed at all?"
