Best settings for my kenwood deck and shaker 500 door subs

Audio guru's, I could use some help.

Here's what I have.

4 boston acoustics 5x7's hooked up to a kenwood 4 channel amp.

The two original shaker subs in the doors powered by the factory shaker amps.

A kenwood bt752hd head unit.

The head unit has three sets of pre outs: front, rear, and subs which are all hooked up accordingly.

The system sounds great but there are some fine tuning settings that I could use some help with.

First is HPF which the owners manual says is for the front. The options are
Through, 100/120/150 hz.

Next is LPF it says is for subwoofer outputs. The options are through, 85/120/160.

Then there is subwoofer phase. Options are reverse/normal.

Thanks in advance for the suggestions.

Sean

First is HPF which the owners manual says is for the front. The options are
Through, 100/120/150 hz.--used to filter bass from your highs. Your amp should have a hpf on it, set it there. Or run the amp full range and set it at the radio. 150 is probably fine. Filters 150 and lower freq.from your highs.

Next is LPF it says is for subwoofer outputs. The options are through, 85/120/160. Lpf, low pass filter. Filter highs from your subs. Set this to ear,how you want it to sound. For the doors I'd start at the highest setting and work down.

Then there is subwoofer phase. Options are reverse/normal. Don't mess with this. It's used to fine tune a system with actual subs and sub amp. Leave it at normal.

Thanks in advance for the suggestions.

Thanks for the help on this. The system sounds great but the subs can be a little overpowering. I have to keep the sub level lower than expected.

Most radios with sub out have sub volume control as well. This is an easy way to fine tune sub volume to your music or tastes. Check and see if your radio does. This is not a gain and gains should be set with the sub volume control at 2/3 max level,just like the rest of the system.

It does have that setting and I can't use more than 2 or 3.
