Questions setting up an Alpine PXA-H800
Just wondering if I could get some advice on setting up my PXA-H800?
I already read the manual, all 98 pages of the H800 thread and searched this forum first.
Here are my system specs:
Parrot Asteroid Smart
Hertz MLK 165 (component set)
Freq Resp. 35-25K
Xover 2.5kHz @ 12dB Oct.
JBL W12GTI MkII
Freq Resp. 18hz-1kHz
Alpine PXA-H800 + RUX C800
I'm running Front L + R RCA's from the Parrot into the AUX 1 & 2 Input of the H800.
RCA AUX INPUT Pattern is 2chx3 Input (AUX1 L + R)
I'm running 3 sets of RCA's from the H800 into a PDX-V9
CH-1 & CH-2 (Front High) -> CH-1 & CH-2
CH-3 & CH-4 (Front Mid) -> CH-3 & CH-4
CH-5 & CH-6 -> (Subwoofer) -> sub W. (L) & (R)
All filters on the amp have been turned off as i'm running active except the subsonic filter which I have at 23hz
AMP Gains set to nominal for now
Speaker System selected is F-2way+R+SW (4.2ch system)
I've turned the Rears to OFF
Settings from RUX
FRONT HIGH - Tweeter
FRONT LOW - ON
REAR - OFF
SUBWOOFER (1) - ON
AUX Input - "AUX 1"
AUX In gain - "High"
AUX Volume Level - 0dB
Couple things I have questions about as i'm not getting and sound out of the mids and what sound I am getting out of the tweeters and sub is very quiet.
1) Do I select "High" or "Low" for the AUX In Gain?
2) Should I adjust AUX Volume Level?
3) I'm controlling the volume from the RUX so I set the HU volume to 3/4. Is this correct?
4) Crossovers, this is where I really got confused
I set the HPF for the Tweeters to 2.5Khz and the LPF to off
The first run through I set the HPF to 2.5Khz and the LPF to 100hz
On the second run through when I was playing around I couldn't select the Front Mid settings at all, not too sure what happened.
Set the HPF to OFF
Set the LPF to 100hz
For some reason I only get sound out of the tweeters and sub now, i'm assuming it has something to do with me not being able to select the mids anymore. I'll try a resetting the H800 and going through the setup again.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
