here's the setup
- Kenwood KDC-MP238 head-unit
- Polk DB351 3.5" in front doors
- Polk DB521 5.25" in front doors
- Polk DB521 5.25" in rear doors
- Polk DB691 6x9" in rear deck
- Polk PA200.4 amp
- amp is wired using 8ga power and ground. all speakers are wired individually using oxygen-free copper 16ga wires with gold-plated connectors at the speakers. running streetwires/kicker (front/rear) gold plated RCA cables from the kenwood to the amp.
so i think this is the best installation i've ever done!
now i have a question for you guys. i'll be tuning the system tomorrow morning. i dont know what i should set the crossover settings for.
I have the following options:
HPF - Flat - LPF
according to the manual:
HPF - attenuates low frequencies and is used with mid-range speakers and tweeters. i think this is the setting i should use, am i right?
Flat - does not attenuate, for full range speaker systems. is this intended for the component speakers that i've heard of yet never seen?:o
LPF - attenuates high frequencies and is used for subwoofers. i'm pretty sure it's not this one.
so essentially i'm undecided between HPF and FLAT. i think based on the manual i should use HPF, as its designed for "mid-range" speakers and on the speaker manuals, all my speakers are designated "mid-range/woofers" by Polk.
any other input or suggestion on the matter greatly appreciated.
