Do you have a copy of the install manual? if not i have the url for you. you didn't say how were going to use the 250sx, but i assume you're planning on using it as a sub driver. an active crossover would be best in this application. orion has them & there others available as well. try to avoid passive crossovers because they absorb some the output power. there is an equalization switch that you use to further balance the system. the bridged mono mode produces about 400W which is pretty decent.

you didn't mention the power rating or impedence of the speakers. those specs determine where we go from here. checkout the manual, get those speaker specs & get back to me.

How do i wire the crossover on the dxd210/213


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.

No sound out of tweeters, highs out of woofers?


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 :)

I am building my own speaker for he first time.i have 2 subb woofers/mid and tweeter but only ave three way cross over what would be the best and safest way of wiring up the speakers?


Hi first thing: do you have a passive or active crossover??
  1. Passive crossover: you can connect the two output together to your subwoofer to have in the same time the low bass and the mid range of frequency.
  2. Active crossover: NO solution you have choose one out put of your crossover, i guess the best is the low output, but the choice is in your hand try the the two output(low/mid) once and choose the best for you
Let me know, bye

Bypassing the 150 watt blown amp with passive crossover


I'm purchasing 2 infinity 3-way passive crossovers on eBay with the same crossover freqs as my two overture 3's with blown amps. For 19.99 each, it's worth a try. Good luck to you!

How to wire in a cross over


You didn't say if it was active or passive, but here is both:

Passive crossovers are easy to install. By definition, the only type of connections they require are to your speaker line. They typically get installed between the end of the speaker wire and the speaker. Connection should be fairly simple, just like hooking up the speaker itself.

Now F-Mod crossovers modify the audio signal before it is amplified. They accept the patch cord from your receiver on one end, and then plug directly into the preamp inputs on your amplifier. They are also easy to install, and don't require additional wiring.

 An active crossover requires a little more work. You have to connect 12-volt power, ground, and a turn-on lead. The active crossover gets installed between your receiver and your amplifier. A lot of active crossovers have both speaker-level and preamp inputs, so they can usually work with either type of connection. The outputs will be preamp connections to your amplifier. Hope that helps.
