    Icon32 pioneer 8600mp

    hey

    on my headunti the audio settings have a slope setting for the speakers what does the slope do.

    my headunit features the auto EQ mode, is it best to use that when fine tuning the sound in comps if you want to make the tweeter louder or less harsh

    also what should the frequencies be set for with the sub and speakers


    thanks for the help

    The slope is how aggressive the crossover setting is. Basically if you have it at a higher number, there will be a higher level of attentuation of the frequencies that are being cut off, of not there will be a little bit of give, you'll get more of those those frequencies closer to the crossover point that you would have if you used a higher slope.


    As far as your settings, let your ear decide. It's got to sound good to you, so our settings and opinions may not be worth a**** to you.

    well i tried myself but i couldnt hear any difference, i kept the friequencies at 100 high pass for speakers and 80hz low pass for the sub as i read it in a book that frequencies above 100hz is for speakers and lower then 100hz is bass

    If you plan on getting new comps very soon then have at it with the cross over frequencies. Give all the frequencies a try and see what sounds best to you. Go ahead and try messing with your amp setting a little also. It probably wont really matter if you blow your stock speakers and this is probably a good chance to learn how to use it all.
