    What do you mean by signal wires? Signal wires usually are referred to as RCAs. If that's the case, I can't imagine why yours are in the fuse-box haha. So there must be a translation error there.
    You just make sure the thumb-drive is formatted properly (FAT32), and then copy the files overs. Most HU's have a "depth" limit for how many folders it can read deep. IE: Thumb drive>Music folder>Genre>Artist>Album>Track title
    Having it go that deep might cause problems. Most people don't do that anyways, but I thought I'd point it out. I have mine: Thumbdrive>Artist>Album>track

    Its funny that you say it must be a translation.error,
    Im in college and im taking a philosophy of science class that focuses thus far on the philosophy of language. The problem within each interdisciplinary field has terms and translations like causality in physics compared to biology with reaction.or impulses in synaptic connections which generally mean the same thing, buts its hard to use physicist language to understand biology, so Logical Positivists tried to create an encyclopedia to unify and solve this issue

    Stop that.

    If you're going with the RS180, then if you can fit the RS tweeter, it's tough to beat for the money. Dayton Audio RS28F-4 1-1/8" Silk Dome Tweeter 275-140 Only problem is that it's a 4" tweeter. But, again, if you can fit it, it's supposed to be bomb.

    What's your budget, and where do you plan on crossing your subs/mids? What do you have for a substage?

    Also, fwiw, I prefer to set crossovers on the HU. Gives a set number, and much easier typically.

    Well if Im buying the the clarion or pr80s then it will be around 500, gives me 200 for drivers and tweeters. Plan on crossing my spl 15"(tss motor) at 110 with the drivers, or is that too much of a range for my future drivers (dayton rs180's) (110hz-1khz or something) and the tweeters play the remainder.. not sure of what slopes cause I dont understand that yet.

    Do you think the rs180's will have a good bass and clarity response if I seal off my doors in my honda civic like keephopealive?

    these are the options Im considering.

    Cross that sub at 80. The RS180's should play down to 80 just fine, they just don't like to play too high for mids in a two way, no higher than 1.8k from what I have seen. But, that's not a big deal, just get a tweeter that will play that low. The RS tweeter I linked will do that perfectly.

    Do some reading man. You may not be ready to go active.

    Subs/mids are usually at 24dB/octave, mids/tweets are basically what sounds good to you and the capabilities of your equipment.

    I don't have something specifically, but DIYMA. Just go start reading, start at the stickies, and anything that looks like it might apply to active, speaker selection, location, crossover, anything dude. There's probably a sticky or two here as well.

    Don't have to pay for either to participate in the forum. CACO requires an upgraded account to sell something, DIYMA requires 100 posts to sell I believe.

    I'm gonna get crucified for this but I think Bluetooth streaming music should definitely be tried if you have the chance. I use it every day on my CZ702 and with the heater blowing every second I'm driving I don't give a **** if I'm losing 2% of "detail" in my music, it still sounds good and I can rock out. I don't drive around listening to reference discs, I listen to bands that play loud.
