JL XD600/6 Setup?

I just installed a JL XD600/6 amp in my e92 with hi-fi.

Subs are 2ohm SWS and remainder of speakers are stock.

Does anyone have this exact setup? Any suggestions for cross-over and gain settings? I'm looking for some punchy base and don't want to risk blowing the OEM speakers.

Try front and rear channels at 200hz HP and the sub channel at 200 hz LP. I have my gains set at 1/2.

Thank you. Do you have the exact same setup? Those values are much different than I would expect, not that I know what it should be (I did ask the question). The JL manual uses a guide of 80 hz.

Are all 3 gains 1/2 up or only the sub channel?

OP is running SWS-8 not Kickers. For the Kickers (midbass subs) I would go up to 200hz. Nor an expert opinion but for the SWS-8 I would not go as high as 200Hz. I would try the following and see how they respond and how you like it:

Option 1) 80Hz LP for the subs and 100Hz HP for the speakers. Only thing I hate about this is running so low frequencies on the OEM door speakers.

Option 2) 150Hz LP for the subs and 150Hz HP for the speakers.

Try both and let us know. Please try replacing the OEM speakers as soon as you get a chance.
