Yes, those are kappa 60csx and their additional mids. I anticipate some "work" when I will be installing those into doors..Those look like Kappa in 3 way mode for front doors? Good choice.
I kept the 3db button off on the Xovers. The tweeters are bright enough for my taste without the extra help. I also kept the 3 way switch in 3 way mode. If you run in 2 way mode, it may sound a bit heavy in the mids. Personal preference once installed should guide you.Yes, those are kappa 60csx and their additional mids.

Setting gain is my other questions. I haven't research correct procedure yet, but it needs to be done. I use 2 channels for fronts and I use other 2 channels bridged (bridged 4Ohm) to power D2 sub wired for 4Ohm. Gain for fronts and sub need to be set separately. Any advice/how to how to make it correct? Also, on Kappa x-over there is +3dB button which doesn't seem to do anything.. Also, I noticed that "mid" switch on x-over only removes mid-frequences from main driver. Should I? Or should I run mids for both main and mid speakers?
My HU is Android and audio source is BT from Spotify. So it even depends on volume level on iPhone.To set gain, put headunit at 3/4 volume and amp gain at min. Increase amp gain until you hear distortion with energetic but clean music (Dave Matthew's Band and Hootie are both good sources). Turn the gain back down a scosche and you should be good. I'd also recommend setting EQ before setting gain if you can.
SMD makes a gadget for this.My HU is Android and audio source is BT from Spotify. So it even depends on volume level on iPhone.
It all doesn't matter now since I don't have sub in a box and speakers in doors, but even now I observed couple things..
Depending on song I had to increase gain for rear channels (sub) or decrease for fronts... I wonder if there is some way to measure voltage or something?
Cmon, this sound will flow easier through wiresWay overkill on the wire.
I am not even Audiophile.. I just wanted better sounding audio (I have another factory car that sounds way better)It's amazing how much effort we put into all the audio components, then we Spotify or play XM radio.
I actually went back to play some of my CD's and was amazed at how much better it sounded over anything I stream from my iPhone through the car. I still miss my DVD-Audio setup, what a shame that didn't get traction.
