Sony CDX-CA710X head unit... vibe sub, alpine 6x9's... need settings help.



ok... its nothing impressive, but it is what i have... and i am just trying to get the best out of what i can afford...

Vibe 10' subwoofer/amp

ok, it has a crossover knob which can be adjusted... do i understand correct that a crossover is when the sub takes over from the other speakers, and by changing this is tells it when to take over and when not to? ... any suggestions on what i should set this to, it also has a similiar knob for levels... i am not 100% certain on where this should be moved to.

located at rear of car.

Sony CDX-CA710X Head Unit

ok... it has an option to change the frequency and level.. the following appear on the display, which should i choose?

62 Hz <-> 157 Hz <-> 396 Hz <-> 1 kHz <-> 2.5 kHz <-> 6.3 kHz <-> 16 kHz

i can also change the volume level, it is adjustable in 1 dB steps and ranges from -10 dB to +10 dB.

2 x Alpine 6x9's

Nothing i can adjust on here.
