Okay have had the head unit in for a few days now and starting to really get into the functions and set my crossover to the fronts but am having a hard time figuring it all out and I have used the search function . It's all like a huge science project setting slopes and figuring out crossovers on the comps, head unit, and amps.
My question is if I use the head unit active crossover should I set the passive ones on the amp to flat or...? Or am I better off defeating the head unit and using the amps hp filters? Is 80 a good point to start hp'ing the comps up front, and where do I start hp'ing the ones in the back? What about slope, and where should I set that on the head unit?
Sorry for all the questions but I need to get this thing sounding decent. The comps up front distort so I'm sure the crossover needs tweaking for that. Any help in telling me a starting point for the crossover setting, and slope all around would be very much appreciated. Can't really pay for the info but anyone who helps if you ever have any questions on termites hit me up.
