I would not recommend this.

Crossovers are designed with specific speakers in mind - they are not interchangeable, since the impedance (Resistance and Inductance) varies widely.

While this will not damage anything to try it, it will probably sound terrible as most people that have separates for the car audio are fairly particular about sound.

The high and mid tone speaker has been broken ,where can i get new speakers


It's more like the "crossover" that's inside cabinet. Crossover splits signal to the speakers hi's, mid's and lo's. It's highly unlikely you blew you blew hi and mid speakers. Contact folks like Radio Shack, etc for optional crossover(s)

What is the impedance and do they need a capactor on or is crossover built in?

please be advised you need the crossover that came with it, or you will need an active crossover dedicated to an amplifier to run these.

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.

I have A RXC 216 crossover and want to run 2 RTC 19 tweeters with this crossover, is there going to be anything wrong in this set up?


Yes and no. First I'll start by saying that the crossover should not be effected and the crossover frequency (meassured in Hz.) will not change either. What you will be doing is either doubling, or reducing by half, the effective impedance of your tweeter. If you wire the tweeters in parallel the impedance will be cut in half (car audio speakers are typically 4ohm), the result will be a 2ohm load. Most car amplifiers are "stable" at 2ohm, but sound quality will suffer. The other option is to wire them in series, this will double your effective impedance meaning an 8ohm load. With a higher load the amp will not put out the same wattage ( the lower wattage will most likely be undetectable). Hope this helps!

Contact kicker directly and give them your model number. They can tell you which remote you need and which retailer carries them.

I need to know who is better for my cherokee sport 1999 ..!!!


Hello leonardoe,

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.

Hope this helps.

I have a kenwood head unit with 3 rca outputs,front,rear and sub.my crossover is a kicker kx3 and it only has front and rear in and front,rear and sub out.my question is how do i hook up the crossover...


No. I would recomend running front and rear to the crossover. Use the sub out on the deck so you have total control of subwoofer output at your fingertips. Your deck should have at LEAST an 80hz crossover built in. Any further fine tuning can be done at the sub amp.

Car stereo crossovers


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.
