    For those of you that Know or Own Boston Z6's

    The Cross over for the z6's what exactly does it mean when that Light comes on? Im gonna guess that it means that the Crossover is being pushed to hard, or getting to hot?...And Is that Light a Fuse? and if it is, is it replacable if it got burned out?

    It's a tweeter protector.... it regulates power to the tweeter and takes some of the power/heat away from it so you won't blow the tweeter.

    It is replacable... if it were to blow out, a new one could be soldered to the board.

    It meas that the speaker is being pushed too hard. It's there as part of a tweeter protection circut designed to 'burn off' excess energy that would otherwise kill the tweeter. At least that's how the MBQ passives are designed. I would be willing to bet Boston is using it for the same reason.

    The Fox audiomobile now sounds more quality thanks to SDS power.

    Its getting pushed too hard, mine started to do it when the amp was clipping.

    The red light is actually the fuse glowing...I was able to put more power in with a larger amp.
