    I was instaloling my new mids and highs and on the crossover for the tweets it has connections for a pos -0db, pos -3db, and a pos -6db.
    What do you guys suggest I connect it to?

    It all depends on your personal preferences. Are they metal tweeters (Titanium or Aluminum) or are they soft dome (silk). If they are metal tweets, as most are, I would run the -3dB setting...If you want more high frequency, you can always change it to -0dB, if you want less high freq., you can always move it to -6dB. If I were running MB Quarts Q-Series, or JBL comps, I'd personally have it set up at -6dB. If it was a silk dome I'd leave it a 0...Again it is all in YOUR personal taste. What kinda speakers are they and where did you mount them (ie. kicks, door, dash, etc.) Just play with iut until is sounds good to YOU...
    Peace,
