    should I set a High pass on the amp when running components

    Im running a set of morel maximos on a boston acoustics gs 125. each set is probably seeing close to a hundred watts rms on each side. I was wondering if I should set a high pass on the Boston amp or just leave it up to the morel cross over which sends 50hz and up to the mid range woofer

    Does your HU have a high pass feature?

    even then you may get some popping at high levels on heavy bass.
    if you want to be safe and you have a decent sub stage and play loud often run the xover at 125 it will sound cleaner.
