Our take on the Kicker KX2 by Crutchfield's Erin Blanton
Kicker's KX2 electronic crossover is designed for 2-way systems (in which highs and lows are amplified separately). You can adjust the high- and low-pass crossovers from 40 to 300 Hz (18 dB per octave) to maximize the performance of your separate components. The crossover accepts both preamp- and speaker-level inputs, and output can be adjusted up to 5 volts for low system noise.
Important Note: This unit has no built-in amplifier must be used in conjunction with one or more external amplifiers.

1 question already asked
1 answer not up on active set up's... My current set up sends signals from head unit to 5 channel amp. And from amp i run passive to front components and tweets. And amp powers sub. Soooooooooooo, i guess i just wire this in between amp and head unit and adjust high's for my front tweeters and lows would power my 6.5. And then i just let my head unit and amp do the sub ????????? [ carl Feb 09, 2016 ]
Assuming your stereo and/or amplifier do not offer the crossovers or the crossosver settingsyou want to use, sure, you can add the Kicker Active model in-line on the RCA connections between the stereo and amplifier. The Kicker can also boost the pre-amp signal level up to 5 volts so, if you have a weak signal from your stereo's pre-amp outputs, you'll get better performance from your amp and speakers when you add the active crossover. I hope that helps! My Bio: http://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=5 [ Ryan Feb 12, 2016 ] Staff
