92d07f568bde139be03a56b380c96c2f?fmt=pjpHello,
I would like to know how to connect a crossover to the amplifier.

there are 2 crossovers that have 2 way and 3 way

they have in+ and in-
and for tweeters, sub and medium.

thanks
regards

Amplifier output is wired to the crossover inputs then each speaker (tweeter, mid, woofer) is wired to the crossover outputs for the respective speaker.  Don't mix those up.

The manual for the speakers should include diagrams (otherwise you can reference manuals for other brands like Alpine).

I already understood this

I would like to be sure that in + and in - (crossover)
they must be connected to front speaker out (amplifier) for tweeters and mids
respectively a + l and -l (if I want to put on the left channel) or a + r and -r if I want to put them right channel.

so if I have 2 tweeters and 2 woofers do I need 2 crossovers (2 way) to cover both the right and the left front channel ?

Yes. If you have 2 components (woofer and tweeter) you will need 2 crossovers. Generally you'd put the crossover in each door.

if instead I have a 3 way crossover
where there are tweeters, woofer and sub

in this case how do you connect?

Don't put crossovers inside doors.  They will get wet and rust quickly, then fail.  Always keep crossovers dry.  The space between the door panel and door metal (inside) can be used, but secure it well.

 

A 3-way is the same as a 2-way, with just one more speaker connection.  You said you understood my first description, what specifically do you not still understand about a 3-way with a tweeter, midrange, and woofer driver?    Subwoofers aren't connected to 3-way crossovers.  Subwoofers have separate amplifier channels with dedicated crossovers (usually electronic).

I thought a 3 way crossover could connect tweeter, woofer, sub

instead it connects tweeters, midrange and woofer

      Sony ES XM-5046 4 channel amplifier amp (old school, made in Japan when Sony was good)
      60x4@4 ohms
      100x4@2 ohms
      180x2@4 ohms bridged

      They are 1 ohm stereo/2 ohm mono stable. I have read in several places that they will do over 300x2@2 ohms bridged. They have dual built-in cooling fans and a pretty small footprint.
      The end cover screws are getting stripped but are still usable, and there is a small bit of corrosion on the bottom corner of the frame as seen in photos. Nothing to be concerned about IMO.
      $100 shipped CONUS.

      View Listing Crescendo BC5500D
      Stable down to .5ohm on strong electrical.
      Up to 18.5v capable.
      5800watts @1ohm on 13.8v
      Had the amp sitting in my room unused for about a year, needing to get rid of it. Now I'm finally selling it. They just discontinued the bc5500 for the new 6k. They're sold out.  If you know crescendo, you know they mean business! And the bc5500 has been ran by many well known/respected competitors. Overall great amp, tons of power. Had no problems running. Always had good electrical running to it. 
      Cosmetic: 9/10 pretty much 10/10 not much, if any, scratches 
      Performance: 10/10

      I am confused on how you tune an amp and line out converter at the same time. I have an LP7-2 LOC, and R1100M Amp and they both have gain knobs on it. I understand that for each, if tuning by ear, you need to put your radio at 3/4ths volume, play a 40hz test tone, and then turn the gain knobs up until the subwoofer starts audibly distorting, but how do you do it both? The only thing I can think of is to just leave the LOC at 100% gain and then turn the amp up until it starts to distort and then leave it right before it distorts, but is that really the right way?
