As the title says I'm thinking of going active. I've never done it before so I'm wondering what the crossover points would be for my morel maximo 6 tweeters and could I run my tweeters off of my head unit? And what would the crossover points be for the mids of the maximo 6? I'll be running a skar 5 channel amp and will run the mids on channel 1 and 2. Midbass on channel 3 and 4. And the sub on channel 5.

Start with the OEM xover points.

What are you using as a xover?

I thought we already decided this in one of your first threads where you were going to run a DSP.

Going active might get you into a whole world of trial and error. as @daloudin mentioned; starting at passive points is a good start. You'd have to look at the FS of the drivers to see what range you can play with. I don't remember the general rule for ea driver as where to start. I'm sure the guys with experience will point you in the right direction

Isn't the M6 a 2 way?

It's available either way and even without a xover for someone going straight active. You can start with a 2 way and add the xover and midrange later. It's what i did with my Maximo Ultra 692s.

Iim using the crossover in my Kenwood ddx 396 headunit..
Good - my fear was that you were trying to use those infernal knobs on the amp. With 12dB xovers you'll need to experiment with flipping phase between each driver to get them aligned best.

The headunit also has 24 db per octave settings. Thanks for all your help.
Start with 24dB then (keeps things in phase) and experiment with overlap vs underlap to get the best response.

Keep the midrange and tweeter physically as close together as possible and preferably on the same plane/axis (all 3 if possible).

Take the time to listen to each driver individually to make sure you know what's coming from where and use the xover settings and time alignment to get the best (smoothest) response possible before doing any EQ work.
