    Amping components question

    I have a Set of compoenets that are 50 watts rms. Does that mean i can only send 50watts to the crossover? or that the mid and tweeter will take 50 watts and i can send 100watts to it. The reason i am aksing is cause i have a gm-5000t laying around and it sends 125 watts rms x2 and i was wondering if it mwould work with them.

    125w would likely be too much for them if they are only rated 50w RMS. However, with proper xover point selection and very conservative gain setting, that amp would likely work well with them. However, it would require use of caution and common sense. If those are two things you lack, don't try it.

    I meant crossover point on the amp, not on the passive.

    O ok.....what should i set it at?

    And also i have a nine.1 with a rca output, if i use that wouldnt that create problems with fading back-forth and left-right? and would it cause any other problems?

    Re: Amping components question

    the xover point will depend on the components, and, the size of your mids, if you're going to be sending them that much power, i'd plan on hpf on the comps @ around 100 and work from there, but it will vary depending on vehicle, install, and comps
