My problem is this.my system consist of this,mb quart components up front,mb quart add a woofer in rear doors and bass tube and eclipse 4/5 channel amp,pioneer headunit.when listening for about 15 min.at high volume the tweeters will begin to start fading out,so i drop the volume level down and they start to come back and i have to leave it at that volume level which is somewhat low..
is there a fix

Did you change out the factory deck? If not, wire the tweets to the existing wiring. If you already have tweets they have been crossedover already. However, if you replaced the deck, you may need to run new wire to the doors and use the crossover that came with your component set. Hope this helps
from the speaker outputs of the head unit / amplifier. Connect from the positive and the negative outputs to the respective positive and negative input of your X-over box. Now connect from the X-over woofer/midbass output to the bass driver. Now do the same for the tweeter from the X-over from the tweeter output to the tweeter. Make sure that all the positives and negatives are correctly connected.
If you are going to use your head unit to power the speakers then you should know that:
White & white with black stripe is the Front Left Speaker output
Grey & Grey with black stripe is the Fron Right Speaker output.
Green is rear left
Purple is rear right.
I think you get that the black stripe speaker cables are the negatives.
If the crossover is made to accept speaker level input from amp then.....Amp/head spkr output + to crossover + input. Amp/head spkr output - to crossover - input. Crossover midbass + out to midbass spkr + input. Crossover midbass - out to midbass spkr - input. Crossover vari-tweeter + out to tweeter spkr + input. Crossover vari-tweeter -3 or -0 or -6 out to tweeter spkr - input. You have to choose for your preference. 0db makes the tweeter respond normally. -3db mean 3db lower in volume...and -6 means 6db lower in volume. Choose based on your liking.
The MB Quart's are component speakers and the PPI's are coaxials. In an "apples to oranges" comparison, the MB Quarts win. Most component systems in the same price range as a coaxial will have better sound imaging simply because you can mount the tweeters up high for better high frequency dispersion. Some also allow you to make adjustments to the crossover, which is built-in and fixed on the coaxial.
But component systems are more difficult to install. If your vehicle doesn't already have the wiring for separate tweeters, you have to install it. Likewise, the mounting of separate tweeters adds to the installation complexity.
it does sound like you shorted out your crossover which can be fixed if you know what you are doing, but in the long run i would try to get another one i know that raidoshack sells some small ones and is also cheap, if your positive that you didnt short out the crossover se if it needs power, see if you can cross your woffers and tweeters on the crossover, if not is there any settings that u can change on the crossover? hope i helped :)
ok well do u have a amp hooked up on the speaker and if not u could have dust in there or it could be a blown voice coil in the woofer part it self best way to check is to take a cotton swab u use in ur ear andgo along the coil part the speaker u no the brownish looks like ornge wires sum thing like that and do it very gently swab around the coil let me no if that helps
you should be able to remove the passive in-line crossover, but since it is blocking everything below 3500 hz, there is no need. leaving the passive crossover in place will also help protect the tweeters if something fails in your setup as any amped frequency below 3500 can seriously damage them.
