Hello Forum members. I am new here and need some "expert" advice on how to hook up my speakers in a custom install I am doing;
The configuration will be as follows:
1-Pioneer, 8-channel pre-amp/pre-out Stage 4 Head Unit model DEX-P99RS
1-Pair of FOCAL model 100KRS 4" component speakers which include both L&R 4" midrange + separate L&R set of 1.79" tweeters,
1-Pair of FOCAL model 165 KRX2 6.75" component speakers which include both L&R 6.75 woofers + separate set of 1.96" tweeters,
1-Pioneer 10" low profile SW-TS2501 sub-woofer.
2- Pioneer PRS 4200F 4-channel amplifiers
1- HD Radio Module
1- Sirius Sat Radio Bus Interface and Module
1- 5-FARAD Capacitor
Problem I foresee:
As indicated my HU has 8 pre-out channels (4-pair L&R) which serve to provide High/Mid/Low and Sub-woofer outlets to amps. I will have 9 independent speakers (4 Highs, 2-Mids, 2-Lows and 1-Sub).
I do not plan to use the crossovers that came with each pair of FOCAL component speakers unless I have to as the Pioneer Stage 4 HU provides the ability to set each channel for optimum sound performance.
My question (where I need advice);
How should I connect the tweeters?
Should I splice the L&R High range speaker out of my Amp 1 to feed both sets of tweeters or should I use the crossovers in between the High range speaker out and the 2-pairs of tweeters?
Note: this equipment is being installed in a vintage Mercedes 2-dr convertible roadster and the tweeters have been installed as follows:
1-Pair (L&R) 1.75" Tweeters installed in doors adjacent to dash mounted 4" Low range speakers
1-Pair (L&R) 2.00" Tweeters installed in rear deck area panels behind the two front seats at same height at the front tweeters (these will be positioned just to the side and behind both driver/passenger seat headrests) and will be apprx. 18" from the 6.75 Low (L&R) speakers which are being mounted in the rear cargo deck area behind the seats.
The sub will be mounted in a space underneath the rear cargo deck area.
