Nice build and thanks for the pictures of your disassembled LEAF :). I used them to figure out what I want to put in later.

200Hz is too high - the bottom octave is 20-40Hz, and the octave from 40-80Hz is likely to be pretty good on the main speakers. Having the crossover set in the lower midrange will have effects well up into the midrange.

That's old information that I never updated. I experimented with 40HZ and down with the SUB and 40HZ and up on the Mid-Ranges but I blew out a couple Mid-Ranges. They just couldn't handle it.

So the Sub is set to 40HZ and below and the Mids are set to 50HZ and above.

So, Yes I am missing some frequencies, I've never had anybody say "You know, I think there's a Gap in the frequencies"

In one of my previous cars I had a 3 Amps, I had two Subs, two Mid-Bass drivers and 3-Ways, 2000 Watts, It was crazy, I do not need a system like that in my LEAF.

This sounds Great.

You may have a dip around 50Hz, since the filters cannot be brick walls. In fact, the gentler the slope of the filter, the less it will affect the phase. The steeper the filter, the more it affects the phase.

Nothing yet. Looking into stealing line level signal and circumventing the onboard amp which is bad. Would like to use digital amps and want to change the speakers. Can't decide on car component sets or self made using raw drivers.

Your install pics will help! :)

This thing makes the remote turn-on lead for your amps.

I bought the LC6i off amazon because I wanted to have all 4 channels. That also has a remote-on.
It is bigger than the LC2.....
There is a harness you can buy that will allow you to NOT cut the factory speaker wires



google search Subaru 20pin harness and AE64.com will come up.
The 20 pin harness is a perfect fit on my 2015 Leaf and the inbetween wires are the ones to cut and route speaker cables. I opted to reuse all factory cables in my install to avoid cutting too many wires,

My LC6i and JL Audio JX 250 all fit under the front passenger seat. The left rail rides on tope of the box, but I was still able to bolt the seat down.

Awesome! Thanks for this Info! - I'll be sure to tell it to people who are looking to upgrade their LEAF
