    Going active with 8443

    I really want to try this out in my car. I recently bought a cd8443 for my first step. I was looking at those bg neo 3 planar tweeters and probably a seas mid or the ascendant if everything starts working out. Does this deck have enough features where i could set the crossover points for the mid and tweet? is there anything else i need? i kinda need the kick in the *** to get started with this (in other words, some more knowledge)



    Its 106 miles to chicago, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, its dark and we're wearing sunglasses.


    Go, passer-by, and tell the world
    That we perished in the cause,
    Faithful to our orders.

    that deck is perfect for going active. adjustable slopes up to 24 db, 5 bad peq for mid and high each.

    yes the 8443 will do all that you need to run a 2 way front stage. also you also need at least one channel per speaker meaning either using a two 2 channel amps or a 4 channel amp.

    probably end up using (2) two cahnnel amps. Would the amps even need to have internal xovers or im good to go? thanks for you quick responses.

    No, they would not need to have internal xovers.

    thanks... that was kind of a rhetorical question.

    if running an active 2 way front stage, you're good to go. the 8443 can low pass the sub, bandpass the mids and hi pass the tweets.
