View Full Version : Crossovers?

06-16-2010, 08:27 AM
Hey friends. I am about to buy a set of speakers for my truck but I am out of town and not with my truck so I need some advice. I already have a Kicker CVR 15" subwoofer in my truck powered by a Rockford Fosgate Prime R500-1 for the bass. The HU is a Sony Xplod CDX-F7710, its old but fantastic. Now the speakers in my truck I know are still the old stock ford 6x8"/5x7" and its time to upgrade those too. Im about to buy a set of 4 Clarion SRC5732's which are 3 way speakers but Id like to know if I need to buy a set of bass blocker crossovers or if this truck already has some in it from the factory.

My truck is a 2004 Ford Ranger Edge extended cab. It had the base model stereo equipment in it. It did not have either of the Pioneer stereo packages. I dont know if it matters but its the stepside model.

Please help me because I need an answer fast.

Im assuming the speakers will be connected to your headunit. These speakers are full range so no u do not need bass blockers. But because u have a substage i would use the head units equalizer to put the door speakers on a high pass filter or hpf. Scroll through your menus till you find the hpf setting and switch it to on. If you can set it to 80-120 hz depending on your music choice..whichever you think sounds best. This takes the frequencies lower than 80-120hz whichever you choose and filters it out of your door speakers. Anything below that your sub will take car of

They will be on a 4 channel amp. Ill just adjust the hpf from that. thanks for the advice.
