Can I use active crossovers to 6.5 components for front stage when using the DQ-61? If so, how would I do that? The EQ crossovers on the unit seem limited. Does this require front and rear speakers to work correctly?

Best Answer: Hello Larry,

-Can I use active crossovers to 6.5 components for front stage when using the DQ-61?

Yes. We don't see your concern here, so please elaborate if the following doesn't ease the problem you see.

-How would I do that? The EQ crossovers on the unit seem limited.

This depends on the connections available on your crossover. Generally speaking, the DQ-61 goes BEFORE any crossover. . . And EQ is NOT a crossover, so the DQ-61 is not 'limited', it is non-existent. In a nutshell, an EQ boosts specific frequency points, to fix "peaks" and alter "valleys" in a given frequency ragne.

-Does this require front and rear speakers to work correctly

It depends on which feature you are referring to. The DQ-61 as a whole does NOT require a front/rear, but for the 'signal delay' to work as intended it does require a 'stage' that can really only be obtained by a proper front/rear speaker setup.
