So say I were messing with a car and wanted to set x over points. What would be a good point for tweeters, mids and mid bass. I know every car is diffrent. I just want a good start point.

80hz to 250/300 for midbass

300hz to 5khz for midrange

5khz and up for tweeters.

My first tuning then would be the 5khz crossover point on the mid/tweeter. That will likely come down based on the tweeter.


Play with volume and make sure nothign is giving up. If it is move the crossover point up or play with slopes.

I would tend toward a bit lower on midrange and tweeter to start, given that the usual active xover is pretty high slope. Other than that it's pretty hard to go wrong with active crossovers.

The only real rule is, the more power you apply, the higher you cross things over. Let your average listening level dictate, if it is very high, go with Andy's, if your non-stereo friends dont run out of the car when you turn your stereo on, you can probably go lower.
