    Re: help! went active with the iridium 6.2

    I crossed my tweeters at 2500 and they sounded excellent. BUT you can go quite a but lower as the iridiums have a pretty low FS

    Fs - Resonant frequency 900 Hz

    Frequency range 1000 - 25.000 Hz

    Just be smart, and be careful, don't go throwin 200w and think that you can crank it at that low of a frequency.

    Nice components for sure.

    I wouldn't go under 1500 for tweets, unless they're home theater tweets or something. But i'd say stay around 1500, just my opinion

    around 18db/oct. You can probably do 12, but to me, that's kind of stretching it

    Edit: Or even 24 if you want

    x2.

    also the lower you cross the tweeter the more mellow the mid-range will sound since there will be a 1" driver playing those frequencies as opposed to a 6.5" driver. i moved my current tweeters down to 2.5k from 4k and got the sound i was looking for.



    07 Scion tC: 880PRS, ID OEM 6.5" mids, Seas neo alum tweets, DD S4 and DD C2a amps, Dayton Ref H.O. 10(.7net, tuned to 30hz)

    HT: Samsung PN58B560 - 80gig PS3 - Yamaha RX-V2500 - Infinity Alpha 50 mains - Alpha center - Harmon Kardon HKB6 rears, Epik Sentinel & ED eQ.2.
