    Highs and Mids question

    I am running a set of Cdt hd62AS comps / 6.5 mids and 1" tweeters and another a set of tweeters-they call them front imaging tweeters and 2 way passive crossovers and i have them run off a kicker 400.4 amp and ordered a PPI 900.4 amp. I am wondering should i use the passive crossovers or should I try and run them active. What is involved and pros and cons ?

    Active all day.
    Just need to have your crossover points set properly for each set of drivers...

    80hz-100hz hpf, 3.5 - 5khz lpf for mids
    3.5k to 5k hpf fur tweets.

    12db+ slopes.

    Play with points and slopes..



    "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?"

    Yep. more tunable.
    Problems in a passive set that you can't fix, can be fixed (most of the time) in an active setup.

    Why get into car audio without being able to freely tune
