    On my amp there are High Pass and Low Pass filters and an OFF position.

    Are coaxial speakers considered "full Range" speakers?? if so it says to set the switches to the off position.

    Also if the switches are "off" does that render the crossover freq adj "off" too?

    "Are coaxial speakers considered "full Range" speakers??"

    Some are stated as being "full range" however technically they are not since they cannot play the lower frequencies with any real authority (cone size and excursion limit how low they will play).

    "if so it says to set the switches to the off position."

    If you leave the switch off you run the risk of damaging the speakers by trying to have them play frequencies they are really not designed to play. If you are using a subwoofer you don't need them to play the low end as the sub will handle that area.

    "Also if the switches are "off" does that render the crossover freq adj "off" too?"

    If the filter switch is "off" it would be the same as not having a filter at all so the answer is yes. :)

    So should I set the switches to the HP setting for coaxials?? Also the adjustment only goes down to 50Hz..is that where you think I should set it?? The Head unit also has crossover point adjustments and I am also clueless as to what to do with them.

    They are Alpine SPS69-C3 (30Hz - 30kHz ) and Alpine SPS-17C2 (35Hz - 30kHz)

    I thought only component Mid/tweet type would use the high pass setting.....

    I am not using a sub, I dont have the room.

    Thanks for helping a Newb.
