Final tuning with current equipment

Factory RAQ unit set flat (bass: 0, mid: 0, treb: 0, fade/balance: 0), volume set at "20" - this is where my gains will be set. Staging and tonal balance is very nice! I may tweak some of the RAQ settings (slightly), but for no EQ or any other DSP features I am quite impressed! Here is the breakdown of each driver in the vehicle:


Driver: Polarity - Filtration - Power/gain % approximation

Left Dash Speaker: Reverse - HPF: 200hz - 100w/20%
Right Dash Speaker: Reverse - HPF: 200hz - 100w/20%
Left Fr Door Speaker: Normal - HPF: 80hz - 100w/15%
Right Fr Door Speaker: Normal - HPF: 80hz - 100w/15%
Rears: Normal (untouched) - Full range - factory (volume set @ 20 units)
Sub Woofer: Reverse - LPF: 60hz - 515w/30%
