    Re: Help from the pros

    Thanks Phoenix, I'm planning to install the Alpine 7875 with Diamond S800's at the front doors, The Kickers Competition at rear deck and the Ultimate 10" in the trunk area (right and left side), The Hifonics Taurus X to drive the doors front speakers, The MTX Thunder 302 to drive the Kickers and the RF Punch 150 drive the Ultimate SB10, but the million question is...Can I install and setup together the Diamond Crossover (Passive) with the BGW Preamplifier/Equalizer? or will be better install the Demon 2/3 way XOver? I'm confused in this point and I don't know what is the better way because my first concern for me is CLARITY. Thanks in advance and I hope you will help me to clarify what is my better option. Thanks again.
    Frank

    Did you rob a car audio store?

    Hi Silvey...I keep some stuff for many years...I get some of that when I was a very young...long time ago...when almost everything was Made in USA, my idea is some kind of "show" the old school to the new generation and I'm really happy to sharing my dreams with all the enthusiastic car audio and doesn't matter the age, ethnic, color etc, the only important thing is the taste for the car audio.

    Hi Zack...I'm not pretended to advice for the "real" expert but I guess right here a lot of people have a experience with installation...

    Re: Help from the pros

    According to Diamond Audio Technology if I use the crossover I will get better sound because that was specially designed for better performance...according to the technician, what do you think?

    you can go with specs of the manufacturer but most people I know dont of course you can always mess with numbers and different varitions of setups to get more power lol but if your runing all diamond audio go with the specs will sound crisp and clear.

    Re: Help from the pros

    Good sense I agree with you and let me tell you something...I don't believe much in the manufacturer but my concern is more in sound clarity than power so my dilemma is using the pream/equalizer also even for nostalgia reason I trying to use it but I don't want to sacrifice the final result of sound quality, What is your advice?
    Frank.
