    Going active question

    I have an Alpine 9855, I have the switches in the back switched to 3 way and can't remember what the other one says lol, but I believe its set up to run active.

    Now my question is, how do I know what set of RCAs runs the highs and which one is for the mids. I want to run the tweets on the rear channel and the mids on the front or vice versa. I'm guessing the sub still runs the subwoofer stage, but no matter what I set the cross over too it plays the same sounds, or do I need a separate crossover for just the tweets?

    Also what does time alignment mean lol

    The top pair of RCA's are for Rear/Mid, the middle pair is for Front/High, and the bottom Pair is for Sub/Low.

    Time alignment is an adjustable delay. Say you have two speakers, and one speaker is 2 feet away and the other is 3 feet away, the sound from the speaker 2 feet away will reach you before the speaker that is 3 feet away. Using time alignment you would delay the signal to the speaker that is 2 feet away so the sound from both speakers reaches you at the same time.

    Does your head unit need to be hard reset after switching from Standard to Active? I know my 880prs does.

    Idk, I had it unplugged when I switched so I'm guessing that would do the trick.
