i was wondering if there was anyway to power the tweeters and the mid woofer from different amplifyers(of them same one at a 2-ohm mode) using the same passive crossover that comes with them??
also would u recomend this? ive been trying to get these things sounding good, it seems like they only wanna play r & b and rap music. the dont really sound good for rock music at all, any more suggestions? ive already checked the phase and all that stuff....thanks!
To Bi-Amp these components using two different amps,
you would need to use 2 passive crossovers and connect one to each channel of the amplifiers output terminals and then connect leads from the speaker and tweeters to their appropiate terminals on the passive networks. This would involve the added expense of obtaining 2 more passive crossovers. The other alternative is to bi-amp using a active crossover that would allow you to select a high pass and low pass crossover frequency
of 3000 to 4500 Hertz at a slope of 12 to 18 dB per octave.
Most active crossover will give you the ability of adjusting the output level for each channel so you can dial in the correct level
for each driver and tweeter to obtain the best possible balance
of the system.
If you can't get the system to "balance out" then I would recommend taking it to a credible shop that can do some fine tuning and troubleshooting for you. It may only cost you a hour or two of their labor, but it will be well worth it.
