New to this forum and this is my first post. Doe anyone have any experience with the Sony XEC-1000 crossover. I have one and plan to build my system around it. I will be attaching 4 amps to it 2 x Peerless 8inch subs MB Quart Q series splits and a set of Sony 4 inch mids the 4 ways will each have its own amp all attached to the XEC-1000. Any suggestions on how to tune/calibrate this beast.

Hey ynot_33 how easy was the XEC-1000 to set up. Any tips to get it working to its best.
Luckyphil - It was not that hard to set up. Nor, was it very easy. There is a lot of fiddle farting around to get the best sound out of all the channels. I have had it installed in my car now for about 18months and I am still making small tweaks every now and then cos it sounds a bit funny in certain spots.
The only tip I can give to you when setting it up is to clean your ears and concentrate. Also, take your time. You will not be able to tune it in 1 hour, well I couldn't anyway.

Also, they are very easy to disassemble. I had to resolder some RCA connections as too much force had been applied by the former owner.
