So for those wanting to keep the stock appearance and have the factory Alpine or Infinity amp, why do people use the 6 channel Audio Control LC6i or LC7i? Not something with 8 channels like the LC8i?
So the fty amp has output channels for the front woofers, soundbar speakers, and rear subwoofer coming out of the white output harness. The tweeters run out of the black input harness (why this is, I'm not sure.) This is 8 channels when including the tweeters.
I'll guess the soundbar channels are full range and the sub channels use a low pass crossover. Does anyone know for sure if the front woofers are full range? ...or do they filter out the high frequencies going to the tweeters? If they're full range the LC6i or LC7i makes sense as there's no need to tap into the factory tweeter channels. Otherwise I would think the LC8i would be necessary so both front woofer and tweeter channels can be tapped into, then summed into 1 output channel.
FYI, I've searched 100's (well maybe 25 +/-) threads on this. Some really good writeups but nobody seems to know about the crossover frequency set up on the factory amps. Seems like those who really care about an awesome system will upgrade the HU. I like to leave my Jeep open in sketchy areas so this is not an option.
Thanks in Advance.
