    NOT using a crossover?

    ok so i got a nice set of tweeters and mids. i dont have a crossover and i was wondering is the crossover necessary? can i run the tweets and mids directly to my amp and still have some good sound? my amp has a decent crossover setting on it.

    any info and input thanks

    Re: NOT using a crossover?

    yes the crossover is neccessary. without the crossover you will most definitly blow your drivers.

    the crossover acts as a filter telling which frequencies to go to which speaker, and without the XO to filter the signal, you will send a full range signal to both speakers, causeing each speaker to play too low, and damaging the speakers.

    not to mention, while they are playing full range, they will sound like poo.

    you still need a crossover to send the signals to the right driver.

    i guarantee the amplifier crossover is not to the extent you need it to be

    Re: NOT using a crossover?

    i doubt that your amp can bandpass the mid-woofer

    i also doubt that the HPF goes up high enough for the tweeter

    i also doubt that you would be able to set it correctly

    my suggestion still lies with just using the xo. why are you opposed to it?
