distibution block & crossover?

Recommended Posts

Vehicle: 2008 Ford Fusion 2.3 4cyl

Unit: Boss BV960NV

Amp: 1x Alpine MRV-F300

Speakers: 4x Rockford Fosgate Prime R168X2

Accessories: Rockford Fosgate RFK8i

 

1. Trying to find out if I need a distribution block?

 

2. Forgot I had tweeters, do I still need a crossover for the front speakers and tweeters?

 

3. Will the crossover divide power between the front speakers and tweeters?

 

Thank you for the help!

1. If you have 1 amp, you do not need a distrubution block. That Alpine has a built in fuse, so you don't need a fuse block either.

2. No, that speaker appears to have a built in Tweeter with internal crossover.

3. In the most extreme cases, the crossover sends 100 watts from a 100 watt amp to the woofer and 0 to the tweet, or 100 to the tweet and 0 to the woofer. But you don't need to worry about it since it's built in.

If you look at pictures of the side of that speaker you can see the built in crossover. It's the cylinder on the side next to the power hookups.

Always need a fuse if your running a hot off the batt. (Fuse close to batt)

Blocks are nice for system upgrades.
