Default WTB crossover network

Hi,
I am looking for a crossover which matches with Alpine 690A and Rockford Fosagte tweeters. If anyone has one to sell, PM me!

Thanks!

I still dint get you

How do I get the capacitors for 2-4k range? Does this mean I should get 2 different capacitors?

The 690A is a 6x9 coax from Alpine. One of the first 6x9s that I liked.

hi Navin, LBM, I have Alpine 690A (6x9) which I am using as rear speakers. I do not have front speakers, but I have RF tweeters instead. Do you think I can remove the tweeters and install 4" speakers? will it be better? (on a Maruti 800)

Ya sure it will help in bringing the sound stage upfront....and it will yield you better results......if budget permits try to put a component kit upfront that to of 6.5 inch size in the doors.....try finding a second hand one if tight on budget but this will improve the sound very much and it will be pleasure listing songs in the car.....

LBM, here is what I currently have:

Alpine 9846E HU (1 pre-out only)
RF tweeters on the dash
Alpine 690A (6x9, 3way) on the rear hatch door
Polk Audio 8" sub + JBL CS 60.2 amp in the boot

The speakers and tweeters are directly connected to HU but sub is connected thru amp (LPF on)

If I go in for components, will I have to remove the current Alpine speakers, or can I still keep them?

Will the current HU be able to support the component speakers (and rear) or will I have to buy another amp?

Considering the car is a M800, is it possible to install 6.5" components on the doors?

Please advise the best thing I can do on a tight budget.
