View Full Version : DX3065 high pass set up

How low should I set up the high pass filter on my amp for the DX3065 components?
Should I limit it to sounds above 150hz as you would for 6.5 coaxials, or are components expected to go lower?
I would suggest setting the high pass crossover on your amplifier to 80 Hertz. This will provide a smoother transistion from the subs
to the components speakers. The bass will not be quite as "boomy" and it will simply sound better. You may have to invert the "phase" on the subs to get the best bass performance.

Thank you for your response.
I do not have a sub to speak of in the rear. I have installed two freeair kicker F8c which are 8" subs and fed 150 watts each. They do not seem to sound too good below 80 Hz, so I have them set up from 80Hz to 300Hz which seems to be plenty boomy (and tight when compared to performance at lower frequencies) for me in the back but also seems to make the front sound bright by comparison.
Based on your recommendation, should I still dial the front components from 150Hz down to 80 Hz or so?
Since the "free-airs" are not giving you the extension, set the high pass a little higher so both the woofers and midrange
drivers are not reproducing the same information. Try setting them between 100 to 125 Hertz. This should work fine.
