Do these passive x-overs have more than one set of inputs? If I got a set, I'd like to power the tweets and mids separately from the woofers, using a 4 channel amp.

I have a set sitting in the box. The x-overs have only one input. I'll be going active myself.

rolls eyes... so putting your adverge home usage tower speakers works well in a car, glad your happy. They look like your adverge old school style build with paper cones and small magnets. Good way to build speakers, also looks like your mid has a 1.5 in coil on it that would explain power handling. things should have high sensitivity, it should only take 5-10 watts to run that.

I am going to post this in all the related threads so please forgive me if you've already read this.
This post is for anyone that is using the PPI PC3.65C 3way set that I am using.
And before anyone asks, I don't know if the following applies to the new PC3.65C set with the AMT tweeter.
Before installation, I always test speaker operation to confirm everything's working properly.
During this test, I discovered that the 2.5 midrange is 180 out of phase from the factory.
It's that way on all four sets I own so it's not a one time production line mistake.
I called up my friend Grizz Archer who when working at Epsilon (PPI) designed this 3way set to see what he had to say.
He confirmed that what I found was correct and the reason for it was because of the way the passive crossover that comes with the set operates.
He said the phase flip was purposefully designed in because the majority of consumers don't read the installation directions and would've wired the mid wrong.
Now why this is important is because if you are going to run the 3way set active like I am, the wiring on the mid needs to be flipped to get it back in phase.
The easiest way to tell a speaker's status is to use a 1.5 volt battery (my preference) and send positive to positive and negative to negative which will move the cone forward if it's correct.
I got a little into the weeds with this but it seemed like something that needed to be posted.
So always check your speakers before installation.

Well the 2.5 set has been discontinued by Epsilon in lieu of this new set.
Maybe [email protected] has some still lying around that PPI wants to get rid of.....who knows.

I'm interested in putting a set of these in a 2014 Tundra. Would the mids work mounted into the factory dash speaker location with the tweeters mounted in the sails? Or would I be better to run a pair of PPI 356CS in the doors?

I removed mine for a set of jbl ms-62c. Sound better and they look like better construction.
