    Should I go Active with Hertz XL's?

    Ok, I just got a set of Hertz HSK 165XL's along with a audiocontrol EQS. Wondering if I should attempt to go active and run each speaker off 125rms or just use the crossovers and run them bridged from my Eclipse amp doing 250rms/side.



    Current set up: Island bombed out 92 mazda 626. Stock rust bucket

    66 Pontiac GTO, modified stock radio, Crossfire CFA 302, Kicker KS6.2's in the front kicks, Crossfire CFA 452 for the 6x9's I need.

    Dude that's your call. Active has the potential to sound much better, but requires a lot more work, time, and patience on your part.

    Do you have a friend willing to put in some work, time, and patience. Active is worth it.

    Nope, unless I pay a shop to do so and thats not happening. Not many that know what they are talking about around Tucson.
