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 to hook up alpine 3653?


Instructions
    • 1 Determine the distance between the system amplifier and the 2-way crossover. Cut this with the wire cutters. Strip 1/2 inch of insulation from the amplifier end of both speaker wires. Loosen the amplifier speaker screws with the appropriate screwdriver. Insert the bare wires under the terminals strips. The speaker wire with the writing or molded ridge is usually used as the positive wire. Tighten the wires down with the screwdriver.
    • 2 Route the wires within the vehicle, avoiding potential hazards such as floors, seatbelt areas, and anywhere where small stressing or abrasion may occur. This usually means under side trim or tucked within the dash. Secure any loose speaker wire with zip ties every 4 inches.
    • 3 Remove 1/2 inch of insulation from the crossover end of the wires. Locate the section of the speaker terminals labeled "INPUT" or "AMP." Insert the wires leading from the amplifier under this strip, following the same polarity used at the amplifier. Screw these down with the appropriate screwdriver.
    • 4 Cut lengths of wire to connect from the crossover to the woofer and tweeters. Strip 1/2 inch of insulation from both ends of the wires. Crimp a 16 gauge insulated connector onto the tweeter end of the speaker wire leading from the crossover. Insert the wires under the loosened screws labeled "TW" or "TWEETER." Tighten these back down to secure.
    • 5 Strip 1/4 inch of insulation from the wire pigtail leading to the tweeter. Insert this into the other end of the insulated connector, and crimp it securely. Repeat for both tweeters.
    • 6 Crimp a 16 gauge female spade terminal on the ends of the wires leading to the individual woofers. Slide these over the appropriate terminals on the woofer, again following the same polarity observed at the amplifier. Insert the crossover end of the wires into the "WF" or "WOOFER" terminal on the 2-way crossover. Tighten them back down to secure.

How do you wire it in? Orion 300 prq equalizer


the prq can be used after a head unit before crossover and amps. it is a preamp/equilizer and you must have an orion amp in the signal chain that uses the 5 pin din plug to provide power to the prq via phantom power. if you have a crossover it must be a brand with the same 5 pin din pinout input and output. the din pinout is 1\+15v, 4\r. ch input, 2\ground, 5\l. ch input, 3\-15v. left to right or clockwise on din. the power can be supplied to the prq with an optional 100 pps power supply unit. rca from head unit feed the input and the 5 pin din is the output .

500a2 crossover frequency


This is one of the amps with the crossover module inside the amp? You'll have to take off the round plastic cover and pull it out to see what it has in there. They are interchangeable and made several settings. Usually the were 90Hz if installed in 1 position and flipped over it was full range, you could get others to cross over your Tweets too. As I recall they had to have that module installed or it will send square waves and damage your speakers and maybe the amp.

Using JBL 4410 3-Way crossover, trying to use PG 12" Dual 4-ohm


ok, connect the amp positive to the positive end of one sub coil, take the negative of that coil, and run it to the positive of the second sub coil, then run the negative out of the second sub coil to the negative of the amp.

Deck speakers


An active crossover is needed if you plan to do a 2.1 or 4.1 or 5.1 setup.
Check if you have a subwoofer output from your head unit (most later models have). If there is, you might not need an active crossover anymore, but it depends on how you like the sound quality of the separations (low, mid, high). Please note the speaker polarities too.

How do you set this stuff?


Need more info..
How many amps and their RMS rated power.?
If one amp, how many channels + individual power for each channel?.
Two crossovers set at the same freq.is redundant and likely to cause more problems.
Do the front speakers have their own X-over? whats the X-over point? and what is their freq. response (total) are they separates
Rear speakers same question.
I'll point out that you cant hear below 20Hz unless your a whale and very few instruments go that low except organs and synthasizers.
The subsonic filter merely block the lower harmonics from eating up amp power.
Their is no universal setting. all systems are different, as are cars, interiors, ears, windows up or down, noise floor, etc.
A RTA helps with the basics but you will still have to tune by ear,
Good sound is difficult enough to achieve,
Great sound is trial and error and very time consuming.
Sorry no simple answer here. Find a good installer ,preferably with sound judging experience,
It wont be cheap, but if you have enough money invested in the system, Don't skimp. or all you'll have is bragging rights
Best of luck, Sumthin
