Re: Starting my build
Thank you for your post sswails. I have a '14 Overland with the 8.4N and am preparing for my upgrade as follows:
Hertz HSK 165 6.5 Components Front
Hertz ECX 165 6.5 Coaxials Back
Hertz ECX 87 3.5 Coaxial Dash
JL Audio 10w3v3 Stealthbox
A couple of questions:
1. In order to get full range, I was planning on summing 8-channels: Front Tweeters (2), Front Midbass (2), Fronth dash (1), back door coaxials (2), and subwoofer (1).
Planning to use the high level output from factory amp into the 3Sixty. Is this what you are planning to do or are your using the PAC CanBus harness to get full range?
2. Another very knowledgeable member of the forum found that IHO due to the inability of the 3Sixty to deal with the factory time delay properties of the high level input signal when summing up the full range signal: he would loose a segement of the mid frequencies. He ended setting up his front stage active to ensure the most flexibilty to adjust the 3Sixty to get all mid frequencies. Are you using high level input or the PAC?
3. Base don the above(2), I was planning running active at the front. However i dont know if the 75w RMS @ 4ohms that I will serve the tweeter in an active system is too much. Would it be better to bridge the 700/5 and serve the front Hertz 150w @ 4ohms unsing the factory crossover?
