Question about Infinity Kappa 10.7t 1'' M.M.D. Dome Tweeters Car Speaker

1 Answer

Car stereo crossovers

I've installed a 2 way speaker system in my car and now it's time to hook up the amp. The woofers are CDT mid range subwoofers and the tweeters are Infinity Kappa 10.7's. The tweeters come with what appears to be an in line bass blocking capacitor. I have some 2 way passive crossovers from MB Quart. And my Amp has an electronic crossover with a high pass and low pass filter on each channel.
My question is, can I simply use the electronic crossover in my amp with out using the passive ones....

Re: 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.

Testing this item

Depends on the mid-woofers you're using. I'd use the cross-over with the mids too first. Exparimenting won't hurt, just make sure the tweeters are run through the cross-overs or you'll smoke them quick.

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.

How to install 4 way speakers

Exactly the same way, you would for a normal speaker.
Four-ways combine a woofer, a mid-range, a tweeter, and a "super tweeter" into one speaker. But it should still only have one positive and one negative.

I have a 04 silverado do i need to install my component speakers in series or can i hook up woofer to factory wing and tweeter seperate from factory

With component speakers it is imperative that both the speakers be hooked up to the supplied crossover. Wiring them in series or parallel will not yeild satisfactory results since the woofer requires lower freequency then the tweeter, which plays the high notes.

Now some cheaper speakers do not use crossovers and sound rather poor. What make and model of speaker are installing? Does you truck already have component speakers in it?

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 :)

Tweeter and door speakers to fit a Lexus EX 300 w/Levinson factory system

I found that they can hold up to 6 1/2" speakers and 2" tweeters. I'm not sure the specific mounting depth but i can almost assure you there wont be any 6 1/2" speakers that require a whole lotta space
