I’m trying to see if someone can answer this question for me in simple terms. Basically I want to know what is going to happen to my signal as it’s going to be transferred and how multiple equalizers, crossovers, and gains will affect it. So basically, my head unit has a built in equalizer and crossover (they’re not that great though.) From my head unit the signal will go to an external equalizer I have. From the equalizer the signal is going to go into a stetsom 3way 6 channel crossover. The crossover is a crossover (obviously). From the stetsom crossover the signal will go into my full range amps. I have 2 amps, one for mids and one for highs.
Now to make things even more confusing the crossover has individual gain knobs and so do the amps. Both of those amps have crossovers on them too. So how will the crossovers affect the crossovers when the signal transfers from one device to the other? And how about the equalizers? My guess would be to keep the crossover and equalizer settings flat on the head unit. Use the external eq for eq. Now the confusing part is I don’t know how the crossovers act with eachother. Does one fine tune the other? Should you try to match them? I hope this makes sense. If someone could help that would be great lol and yes I tried google
Alright so I'll give you guys some backround information. I have a 2008 Honda Fit Sport. 180 amp singer alt and xs d5100r under the hood, and 2 xs xp3000's in the hatch. 2 soundqubed 2200s strapped @ 2 ohms (each seeing 1 ohm) pushing 2 hdc315's in a 10 ish cu ft box tuned to 32hz. I don't k now how much port area there is, but it's a lot. These things get low. Sometimes I wish I tuned a little higher, but that's a whole other topic. I haven't played many test tones but on music I've been metered at 153.8 and as high as 149.9 @ 29hz. My mids and high keep up with the bass, but they're missing that "wow" factor. People that don't know anything about car audio will be blown away by 150+db of bass on music, but I want the vocals to be just as mind blowing. I like to leave room for improvement, so I'm not gonna get custom doors made quite yet. As of now I have a second box mounted on the front of my sub box with 4 soundqubed 6.5 pro audio speakers and 2 of there supertweeters. I have some old powerbass components (you don't even hear them). The tweeters have been blown for so long, sometimes I wonder whether or not I need them. I have a ppi 900.4 pushing the mids and highs. So basically my whole system consists of 2 hdc315's on 4.4k, and 4 soundqubed pro audio mids receiving about 100 rms each. It sounds damn good and range is unbelievable for only having 2 different speakers.
Now comes to the real part where I need feedback. I don't know why, but I've decided to go with prv audio for my mids and highs. I'm gonna stick with my ppi 900.4 for now, it does a little more than 200 rms per channel x 4. Down the road, I'll be converting to a crescendo 1100.4. I know that 4 8 ohm speakers can be wired down to a 2 ohm load. So essentially I could run 16 8 ohm speakers on 4 channels each seeing 2 ohms. I want 4 8"s, 2 6.5"s, 4 of their highest end super tweeters, and 4 of their compression/wave guide combo (ostly because I think they'll Look cool). I'm going to try to upload a picture of my sketch so you guys can see how they would look in the box. What do u guys think about this. I know I'd save money by not having to get amother custom box made if I just went right with it and got custom doors made for all the speakers, but like I said I like to leave room for improvement down the road when I get bored again (probably 2 months lol). Any and all hel p is appreciated guys.
