umm... why dont you want to just get a component set that has all the hard work done for you as far as crossovers go?
Are you sure? I thought the 300/4 only had double HP/LP filters with an X10 multiplier on the front and rear channels, but lacks bandpass for total control of the midrange upper frequency.Surely.
And double-check that amp, I bet it can go fully active. That would be an easy way to make this work. The crossover of the Pioneer isn't all that hot, so going active with them would be a great benefit.
Argh, Reading > Me on this oneIts the factory HU, according to the OP.
I picked up a Coustic XM6 for $15 from one of my friends and I find it runs circles around some amplifiers with built-in crossovers.A simple active crossover would do this, and be pretty cheap though. Or, you could try the 520's passive, and then use the JL's onboard crossover for the rest (as usual.) IMO, it should still sound pretty good.
I have Dynamat left over from my last car. So I'll use what is left then go with second Skin Damplifier and Luxury Liner. I really appreciate all of the info.While slightly off topic, I'm wondering if you meant dynamat the brand, or just "dampening." Unless you are buying Dynamat below cost, going with alternatives would be cheaper and produce similar results, up to much better results (RAAMmat and Secondskin off the top of my head.) I only mention this because, as a relatively new poster, I'm not sure if you were aware of the alternatives to spending Dynamat money. Also, consider a barrier foam like luxury liner, rattlepad, ensolite, etc. as your top layer to finish it off.
