    Need tuning opinions

    Alright I'll give it a try. Yeah, I'm not yet familiar with hearing distortion so I will just have to listen closely lol

    Makes sense. Is it possible to set a dsp's output level with a multimeter, like you can do on an amp?

    Man I really do appreciate all you guys help

    Thanks for the help man. Alright I will try that out. It's very easy to isolate speakers with the dayton dsp, which is super nice. Something I was not even thinking about before starting this post, is output level on each channel on the dayton dsp. I realized I have the outputs to each speaker maxed out. Also, noticed I can turn the amps gain all the way down and still get decent output out of the headunit @26 out of 35. Are my outputs on the dsp too high?

    They are some plastic spacers i got from a audio shop. I put foam tape behind the speaker flange and behind the spacer. It seemed sturdy enough. Not quite sure what you mean. Do you mean the crossovers are switched?

    Thanks for the info man. Either my doors aren't sealed up good enough or My gain is too high. I will try 70hz, but I think they'll bottom. I'll give those crossover points a try and see how it sounds. Should I have all eq and time alignment flat when changing crossovers?

    Nope no sub, but I plan on it. I noticed the evils don't like playing low. Not sure where they bottom at...but I've got the mids at 80hz hpf at 24db slope now and without eq my passenger side mid will bottom on some songs. That's why I was wondering if I have the crossovers set wrong. Did they bottom from playing too low or are they bottoming a little higher? Like 100-140hz?

    Thanks ma n. I have a few placement options. I might try in the dash facing windshield and the pillars I suppose.

    What up guy's! So, I need some tuning help/opinions. Vehicle is a 1996 jeep grand cherokee. I have a pair of evil 6.5's, and a pair of evil 1 tweets running off a nvx jad 800.4. Also, have a dayton dsp408. Midbass is mounted in stock location in the doors. Doors are deadened and sealed of as best as I could. Haven't fully installed tweeters yet, but they are wired up. Stock location for tweeters are in the dash. Is this a bad spot for the evils, or is there maybe somewhere better for them? Also, was wondering if anyone had crossover suggestions for the evil mids and tweets. I'm really not sure what steps I need to take as far as the tuning goes. Any opinions are welcome. I need them lol

    Amp or HU crossover, and HU suggestions

    I would but there is hardly any room behind the door panels. I guess my goal is for it to sound really good but at the same time keep up with the sub stage. I know it's not ideal to speakers in the rear doors. I'm not sure it would bother me much. I probably wouldn't be able to tell that they are there as much as some folks would. I understand what you are saying though since rear speakers will pull the sound behind you.

    I looked at that particular pioneer you referenced. Also seemed like a good choice and great price. Priced around the same as my barely used alpine head unit. The alpine new is a little bit more on the price side compared to that pioneer. For some reason I thought it was a good deal. But in the long run may cost more than a pioneer 80prs because I will need a dsp more than likely.

    One evil 6.5 per door. Evil tweets will be possibly in the dash, don't have them yet. If two evil tweets will be enough for 2 or 3 15's then I won't bother with 4 of them. I was only assuming I would need 4 evil1's to pair with the 4 evil mids.

    That's what I will have to do. Thought about pulling the alpine out and buying the 80prs which I should have done in the first place. But I did a good wiring job and don't want to yank the alpine unit out lol. Going to just suck it up and buy a processor of some sorts. I would need something like 10 channels for 8 speakers plus subs. What processor would you recommend?

    Will the prs80 give me full control over 4 evil1 tweeters and 4 evil65 mids plus subs? In example, control over crossovers, etc for tweeters 1 and 2, and then seperate for tweeters 3 and 4?
