I thought about going out in the car tonight to calibrate but realised I know next to nothing about it so decided to read more and get to grips more with some of the basics...

BTW, is there any way I can change the crossover settings without actually opening the door trim etc... silly Q I know but anyway through the MS8?

I'm finding the Morel Tweeters to be quite lou in comparison to the Mids so I'm thinking of setting the passive x-over to "0". I have a feeling it could be set to "+3db" or whatever it may be.

I need an RTA in all honesty and someone to show / guide me in how to do this as what I don't want is the "airplane noise of death" lollll...

My installer is very old school in that approach so doesn't know much about the MS8 and my agreement with him was that he simply gets everything connected and working and I'll sort the rest.

So here I am now and I didn't realise I needed to know so much technicalities lol...
I read somewhere (cannot remember now) that Morel tweeters work better in 0db (default settings) or -3db settings. If they are already on 0dB settings, leave them alone. Unless you find them harsh ---> then it is worth of keeping them on -3dB settings to keep it nice and soft.

Mob17 can give you more tips on setting up MS-8.
Since you have Jenherts so 200Hz xover setting b/w under seats and mids is a good starting point.

re: updating MS-8 firmware, please check their website and details are given there. It is only applicable if you have built in BT (in your case).

You do not really need RTA to set this up, if you have good ears.
