Does anybody on here have any experience with them? I bailed on a DSP (long story), so, I am getting a Taramps CRX4 4 way installed next Wednesday to finish my build up. I'm running the following;
Headunit- Kenwood DDX771
Taramps CRX4 4 way crossover
Speakers-
2- Pioneer TS-B350 Pro tweets
2- Pioneer TS-M650 Pro 6.5" midrange
2- American Bass VFL65MB 6.5" midbass
1- American Bass HD15D2 (3.9 cubes ported net tuned to 32hz.) 13 ply Baltic Birch clear coated
Amps-
Taramps DS250X2- tweets (8 gauge)
Taramps DS800X4- midrange and midbass (8 gauge)
Taramps MD3K- sub (4 gauge)(Only and 18" run to the battery)
Two AGM batteries
Small Alternator (biggest that I could find for my car)
LED voltmeter in the dash (wired directly to a battery)
Big three 1/0 Sky High OFC
14 gauge OFC for speakers
8 gauge OFC for Sub
Knuconcepts RCA's
Orion Stinger 8000 RCA for Sub
Whole car is sound deadened (doors, rear quarters, roof, sunroof, under the dash, and under the front fiberglass hood) Even the roof slats on the luggage rack are padded to prevent any rattling.

Any thoughts? Did I screw up anywhere? I did all of this unemployed. Including purchasing and finishing my car. Sorry, if it's in the wrong section. 😂

I know most of the Brazilian audio companies are built in the same house, but I use the Banda Expert Electronics PX1 Connect. I cannot say enough good things about it.Can adjust everything from cell phone app via BT. Incoming EQ & Gain, Outgoing EQ & Gain, 100% tunable X-over frequencies, dsp, and all kind of things. You can actually have a high, low, and band pass all on the same channel. OH! and there's a safety limiter so you dont clip, you can choose how fast, and how hard it cuts off. Very VERY good Crossover. And it's under $125.

I've already got the Taramps crossover. So, we'll see what happens when it gets installed Wednesday.

They are designed to do full power at 2 volts input. The Smart 3 is good up to 4 volts. Almost all Brazilian amps like lower rca voltage. Banda liking under 1 volt.

So, why would Taramps make a crossover at 8 volts? Or, am I reading it wrong?

Can you critique what my system? I respect your opinion. I know that I will lose points for rear fill. But, I really tried to put together a decent system. But, if you don't think so, so be it. Let me have it, I'm a big boy. It is what it is.
