    crossover advice needed..

    ok, i got the pc bit sorted out, now for the sound! i have 2 sony stereo amps for front and rear and a jbl stereo (can be bridged) for sub bass. will get 6.5" 2 ways for the front and 6x9 for the rear. should i get an active crossover? what are the pros and cons? at the moment my front speakers (alpine) start to distort about half volume and my rear at about 3/4. think this is because i have no way of blocking the low bass to them so i should send it all to the sub? also i am looking for a sub or 2 that is either free-air mounting or as small as possible, any ideas? thanks!

    avoid using free air if you can.... I've seen setups w/ huge 12" free air subs that sounded much worse than you can do w/ a 6.5 enclosed properly.

    On that note, check out the JL 6w0 as a sub. Its fantastic, and like I said, if enclosed properly, should sound quite nice!

    Of course, everything ultimately depends on the dynamics of the car itself. What kind of car is it?

    the car is a shogun sport, pajero challenger in us i think, i am going to use it as a van by putting a full bulkhead behind the rear seats. my 6x9 will go in the bulkhead facing the front, front speakers will go in door and tweeters to the windscreen pillers, the sub(s) will have to either fit under the front seats or go behind the bulkhead with a hole for the drivers. dont want loads of bass just want it to sound natural. thanks again!
