    Hello All,
    I recently had an Alpine PDX-F4 amp (100RMS x 4) installed to power my Image Dynamic XS-65. The problem I'm having is that I get 0 midbass. Is it necessary to use the HP filter on my amp if the installer used the crossovers that came with the speakers? If so, what setting should I set the filter for? Please help and thanks for your time.

    HP filter should be on. I'd set the hertz to 80'ish and go from there.

    Sound deaden the doors if you want more mid bass.

    Do you have a sub too, or not? Have sub, need HP on the doors (HU or amp), no sub, no filters should be necessary. Agree on the vibration dampening and sound deadener.

    Thanks for the help.
    My front doors have dynomat. I followed your advice about adjusting the HP Hz to 80ish. It was set to 110hz. That made a slight difference. I do not have a sub. What speakers do you recommend for the back doors? Thank you for your time.

    It's all about budget when it comes to speakers.. Personally, Focal is the only speakers I'll run in my doors from now on. You are running ID fronts, I'd find the matching rears if its in your price range.

    If you do not have a sub, turn off the filter.

    Thanks for the tips. I'm going to try turning off the filter and see how that goes.

    @Aw9d, Is Focal that good? Wonder if I should if I should just put 6x9 in the back door. I believe that's the original factory size.
