 Simple splits question

Another simple question for someone...I am intending to run my splits through separate channels (one channel for the tweeter; one channel for the mid), I have separate active crossovers to handle that side of things. My question is my MB Quartz PCE216 have an RMS rating of 130 watt...does that mean that each component is rated at 130 watt or that the tweeter handles 60 watt and the mid handles 70 watt or something entirely different? Cheers guys

Well, if it's rated for 130w then that means you should be able to safely apply 130w to the input side of the passive xover (assuming your highpass point/slope allows the mid to mechanically handle that much power).

Now, with that said....they may have a kind of circuit built into the passive crossover which reduces the actual power supplied to the tweeter. But in all honesty, you wouldn't enjoy listening to your tweeter with a actual 130w applied to it as it would be painfully loud anyways.

So if you are contemplating how much power to supply to the tweeter...chances are good that you'll reach the output level you desire prior to reaching the thermal limits of the tweeter. So just take care in properly adjusting the level setting on the active xover and the gain for the tweeter channels and you should be good, regardless of what the actual "rated" power of the amplifier is.
