    Icon32 Lack of balance between front component set and rear 6x9's. Suggestions.

    Power: RF Power 851x highs, RF Power 1001bd lows.
    Deck: Alpine CDA 9805
    Speakers: Lows - 2 Audiobahn Natural Sound 12's, DVC
    Highs/Mids - Audiobahn ABC 600T components, front
    Audiobahn 6x9's rear
    Highs all run 4 ohm stereo.

    Problem: Having trouble getting front components to keep up with rear 6x9's. Crossovers for front/rear set at 140. highs at deck set flat, 12.5k, (dropping to 10k seems to put out too much hiss) bass flat, freq set at 100, bass eq set to 4

    My problem is that I can't get even sound up front from the component set. Rear 6x9's set at lowest gain setting at amp still overide front components set at 1/3 gain. Cranking the gain on the front much higer, and the tweets start to distort. I know those components can take a hell of alot more power than the 6x9's, but like i said, cranking the gains up on the components to the point where they seem to be able to keep up with the rear, and the tweets start to hiss and distort. Looking for some advice on how to alieviate this problem. Diffrent crossover settings at amp? higher treble settings at deck? Thanx:P

    Friend had the same issue and posted here about it. They suggested using an Lpad to attenuate the rear speakers down.

    Why not just use the fade on the deck to fade it up front?
