    okay, i got my new 18" speaker to throw under my 2 10s and i cant quite figure out the crossover. i plug the 18 into the low out and the 210 into the high out. i get barely any sound and its coming from the 210. so little of a sound that i can only hear it when i am up against the speaker. it sounds like the only power i am getting is from my 18 volt electronics. am i missing something? is there a button i need to push somewhere? thanks for any help.

    The signal coming from the crossover outputs is unamplified. You will need another power amp to amplify both the highs and lows using the T-Max crossover.

    You could run a connection from the high output of the crossover to the power-amp-in jack on the T-Max, and then use the normal speaker outputs to connect to your 2-10 cab for the highs. For the lows, run a connection from the low output of the crossover to an external power amp, then connect your 1-18 cab to the correct output from the external power amp.

    I hope this helps...

    alright, thats what i was thinking in the first place. i think i will just stick to running them in parrallel for now until i can get my hands on a 200-400 watt poweramp. thanks for clearing things up for me.
