Re: Powering the Components
The crossover will send the frequencies below the crossover point to the mids and above the crossover point to the tweeters. Both the mid and tweeter will be getting the same power from that amp channel since they are operating on different frequencies.
If that doesn't make sense, here's an example that'll hopefully help:
- AMP: each channel can provide 100w rms at 2 ohms.
- MID: Will get 100w rms because the crossover filters 80-3000 Hz frequencies to it.
- TWEETER: Will get 100w rms because the crossover filters 3000+ Hz frequencies to it. Although, the passive crossover will probably limit the amount of power actually getting to the tweeter through a built-in protection circuit.
