    quick ? about adding more speakers

    What iam trying to do is add another set of tweeters for rear, I have 2 channels open on another amp but I only have 6 channels on my hu I have fronts rears and subs so I was wondering if I use y adapters to use the high pre out to control both the extra tweets and fronts. Will that work and how would I go about doing that

    Re: quick ? about adding more speakers

    The best way to do this without having control on your head unit is an Accent Fill system: AF-256/020

    You should set a high pass filter on the amplifier, but the crossover is adjustable for blending in with the existing rear speakers, plus you get the L-pad to precisely dial in the level of the 2" mid/tweeters. This is a much better solution than adding tweeters with Y-splitters.

    Why do you need to add tweeters in the back?

    It sounds like you need better tweeters in the front.

    People don't have to have the same listening preference. Brad has his treble on lock down in the front.

    Do you have mids in the rear? That is why I asked why you wanted tweeters in the back. Tweeters alone will do very little, so if you're trying to get louder add mids or coax's in back...
