    Alpine CDA-9887 and crossovers

    Good morning,

    The alpine has dip switch on the chassis for 2 xover settings; 2way and 3way. What is the best way to setup the deck with the equipment I have? Can I even do 3 way?

    Here is my setup for the speakers. I only have 1 set of speakers (i only have room for 1 set)

    Viper 550.2 components (100 RMS) - powered by MRP-F240

    MRP-F240
    40 watts RMS x 4 at 4 ohms
    50 watts RMS x 4 at 2 ohms
    100 watts RMS x 2 bridged output at 4 ohms

    I was going to bridge and have the set run at 100 watts.


    Thanks in advance

    I have mine on 2 way. Unless you are going SQ I don't see why you would have it on 3 way.

    Thanks for the response. The reason I was thinking about 3 way was because I wanted to be able to control the mids and the the tweeters individually with my deck.

    The 2-way setting only allows me to change the crossovers for the components as a whole but the 3-way gives options for both mids and tweeters. The more I think about it, it doesn't matter since the tweeters are using the components crossover HPF... right?

    3 way would be if you are going active, I believe.

    What do you recommend for the equipment I have? 2 way?

    Yep. 2 way + sub. I don't think you would gain anything by doing 3 way, but I could be wrong.
