    I have to agree with the above two guys, you should sit down and do a lot of reading on active setups and what's involved and especially what the terminology means and how they apply and/or should apply to each speaker in the setup. Good luck!

    If you want it to dim with the headlights coming on, then yes, if not, then no.

    Re: Alright, Boys (Noob uncertainties)

    @neo_styles ; @ciaonzo ; @TheUnderFighter ; @gckless ; @nismos14 ; @mclerico83 ;

    Regardless, the headunit dims with headlights. had a small scare, it wasnt turning on initially when I had my key in ignition at auxillary.. but i just had to push power :p ooops

    Btw, Im kind of upset with the slopes only being 6db & 12 db. But for 160$ i suppose I cant bitch

    I felt people have praised it up to be what its not.. I love the 5volt preouts, I can tell a difference.

    Also, not sure if I need to switch my rca's but when I eq'd the fade or whatever and set it to +5 or so to left.. the right speaker got louder (opposite)

    Heres my setup (granted I need to relocate my tweeter at the A-pillar or sail panel on axis, and do some absorption work in my door panels.. )

    Will adjusting my tweets do anything with out A. passive xover taken out B. with an rca cord from headunit highs preout to amp?

    Highs
    HPF @ 2K, 12 db slope (assume phase is normal)

    Mids (bandpassed on hu)
    HPF @ 50 hz, 12 db slope
    LPf @2.0k hz , 6 db slope

    Sub
    LPF @ 80hz 6db slope

    Another question at 6db slope.. say hpf @ 50 hz will the speaker be between little louder and twice as loud at 100 hz and 25 hz have the opposite effects?

    You probably have them rolled. Just switch them and you should be fine.

    Heres my setup (granted I need to relocate my tweeter at the A-pillar or sail panel on axis, and do some absorption work in my door panels.. )

    Highs

    You could try playing around with this and the mids, raise it a little probably, since your mids are playing much higher than this right now.

    Mids (bandpassed on hu)
    HPF @ 50 hz, 12 db slope
    With a 12dB slope, you are going to want to cross higher. Like, 100Hz, if your sub is at 80Hz w/24dB.
    LPf @2.0k hz , 6 db slope


    Sub
    LPF @ 80hz 6db slope
    Do you have anything higher than 6db? You should be able to find better, either on the HU or the amp. 6dB is trash for subs. If you are stuck with 6dB, cross at 50Hz, but I think you should be able to find a 24dB somewhere.

    Another question at 6db slope.. say hpf @ 50 hz will the speaker be between little louder and twice as loud at 100 hz and 25 hz have the opposite effects?
    I don't know what you are trying to say. Lol.
