    MB quarts are soooooo bright....

    its way too crispy for my taste right now so when i went to adjust the tweeter attenuation, i noticed that the xover was at -6. excuse the ignorance but can i make it less bright if it's already at this setting? would i just have to adjust the tonal controls on my hu?

    Re: MB quarts are soooooo bright....

    i think it is part tweeter placement too cause i opted to have them mounted furthest from th hinge so they're kinda near the rear passengers head. i wanted this to create a surround effect for movies and games.

    does anyone know if i can put some kind of capacitor to filer the *ultra* highs to them?

    I've heard of reversing the polarity of the tweeters to reduce brightness, try that and see how it sounds.

    Re: MB quarts are soooooo bright....

    Actually.....ive sat inside a car with about 9 pairs of tweets running off a 600 watt 4 channel amplifier....and it did not bother me at all. I guess I just like alot of tweets.

    Actually just about the time that I can get enough highs out of my tweeters to satisfy me, the tweeter protection kicks in.
