    you need crossovers. a single "bass blocker" cap needs to be so small and crossover at such a high frequency that you rely on the woofers for treble - which, depending on placement and response, can be problematic.

    tell us more about the speakers. there are thousands of 6.5" woofers out there - we need specifics, make/model of both woofer and tweeter, pics are nice too.



    have you been helped by me? i'd love to know. shoot me a PM.

    Bad idea. If the tweeters are not tamed enough, they will sound harsh and fatiguing. If you got component sets complete with passive crossovers, then use the crossovers.

    I agree with zako... get some crossovers and save yourself lots of headaches.

    or as was stated above... run them active. that amp has an ok crossover section iirc, or spend a bit on a nice active deck to make it worth while...
