    Pro audio questions

    Ive been thinking about pro audio mids and highs fiberglassed into my truck lid for playing music at the beach and things like that. But I know almost nothing about running pro audio..

    I have an AQ120.4 and the front 2 channels will be running HAT components and I want to use the other two for two pro audio 6.5s and two super tweeters.

    What do I do about wiring them up? Should I do 2 8 ohm woofers wired down to 4 ohm to 1 channel and then 2 8ohm tweeters to 4 ohm off the other channel? What about crossovers?

    I searched and searched and didn't find anything that really helped me..

    Thanks

    Re: Pro audio questions

    tweeter and mids will be sharing the same crossover which in my opinion isn't good...

    Re: Pro audio questions

    What would you suggest doing? Are the crossovers I would need the same as with component speakers? I've ran quite a few different component sets.

    Re: Pro audio questions

    I would suggest a 2 chan for the front comps and a 4 chan for the rears.

    Re: Pro audio questions

    Well I already have my AQ120.4 Just was going to run HAT fronts and didn't have any use for channel 3 and 4 so I though that would be a good idea. Maybe ill just run a set of components in the trunk lid off the rear channels instead of pro audio setup.

    Re: Pro audio questions

    why would you mix HAT's with PA stuff? 2 entirely different objectives.

    If you are more concerned with getting loud go to all PA stuff. Use the 120.4 to power 4 PA mids and get a 2ch to power the super tweeters.

    Hats for inside the car.. The PA stuff was going to be mounted on the trunk lid so I can open the trunk at say the beach and have some music.

    OK, that makes a lot more sense. although i have run an SQ and PA set up inside a car, diff amps off toggle switches to run one set up or the other...
