    CDA-9853 Crossover/Parametric EQ settings???

    Here is my setup in my Altima:

    CDA-9853 with:
    SPS-170A 6 1/2" Fronts
    SPS-690A 6"x9" Rears

    Everything is running off of the HU, but I don't have any idea how to setup the parametric equalizer. I tried the i-Personlize, but i'm still confused.

    What would the ideal crossover /parametric EQ settings be for my setup??

    Ok...I have the fronts set to 160 and the rears set to 100 with a 12db slope....so far so good

    This parametric EQ is a b*tch, so I'll stick with default factory presets..

    Well, it wasn't me being right - I was actually asking if those speakers would play lower than the 160Hz he stated he had the fronts set to. That just seems kindof outrageous to me and makes me wonder if he's got a hugely audible gap in his overall sound.

    But now that you've told me the limitations of the Type S coaxials in your experience I've learned something so today is a good day

    thats me in my newbish days those, they probably sounded like crap though, but they sure as hell played that low. I enjoy componets now. Actually looking for some new ones. Maybe some JL's neways, Prowler go to the thread and tell me why you dont like wrights sound gallery...remember you told me to ask you at a later date
