    How low can you go with the Iridium 8.3i?

    xover setting will be used by my HU pioneer 880

    currently, i'm using a temporary amp, lightning audio s2.300 which gives out around 90watt per channel...

    so how low can the iridium go? currently i set them at 80@12db...

    Depends on the install/car. Try going to 60/63 and adjust from their if no distortion go lower.

    I would say 60ish also - possibly lower. They should only need to play up to around 400hz correct?. keep the bass up front.

    Its probably going to be volume dependent. They will probably be fine at the lower setting as long as the volume is moderate or lower. If you start turning up the volume the setting will need to be raised as well.
