Hello everyone,

i've been reading up alot on DIY setups lately, and i'm about to jump in and buy some seas lotus drivers. but i have some tuning questions.

so basically, when you go active crossovers, how do you percisely set your cross over points?? I use a diamond D7 amp, and the crossover knob's are pretty broad, starting at like 60 hz all the way to 5khz. how do i tell if i tuned in the correct crossover frequency?

I have a nakamichi headunit that does not have crossover capabilities, so everything will have to be done externally. How does everyone else dial in there crossover points on an active setup?

Any insight would be great,
Thanks

i was refering more to hardware that change settings, not hardware used to check settings.

Like proccesors? or equalizers? what are the popular ones that people use?

so would a Clarion DRZ9255 solve all my problems?

I already have a nakamichi cd400, so getting an eclipse would be a bit pointless... might was well upgrade to the next level.

i wouldn't even know where to begin with the Behringer dcx2496 in my car...

i doesnt look like it belongs in a car.

npdang: my local mom'pop's audio shop has the eclipse cd8455, clarion drz9255, and nakamichi cd700II on display powered by an audison vrx 2 channel with class A modulator plugin on the Diamond D9 components. The nak cd700 utterly destroys the other 2 unit in terms of details and quality. But the nak cd700 is also the most featureless unit out of the 3. But in terms of just as a source unit, it kick ass.... not to mention it's alot more expensive though.

But i do agree with you, in the DIY world, the nak isn't that great unless your using all external processing and only using at as a source unit.

yes, in the matter of fact the reason why i'm planning on replaceing my nak cd400 is because the track pickup is about to fail. the cheaper nak's are made with lesser parts, and this is a known issue that even my dealer told me.

So anyone intrested in a cheaper nakamichi head unit, you have been warned.
