Question about Car Audio & Video
I have a orion 250 sx its black and small. it has two speaker outs caN I CROSSOVER AND HOW. is it worth crossing over. i have two 10"s
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.

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.
