Default Built in crossover in 6.2 Starlink?

Does anyone know if the stock 6.2' starlink headunit has built in crossovers? For me to find out, I would have to pull all my seats/trim to trace the wiring from the radio and see it it runs to the main speakers or if they split between separate speakers. If it splits there is likely some kind of crossover.

If you pull one of the tweeters you will see that it has something attatched to its back which could be a crossover. Other than that I would bet there is full range signal all around.

Reason I ask is because I want to know whether I need to get a LOC(LC6i) or not. My amp has built in crossovers already so if I get a LOC, I wouldn't be able to get a better sound to all frequencies. Only the ones I am connected to. Essentially spending money on something I don't need without any benefits in sound quality.

Are you saying your amp has speaker level inputs? - if so you don't need an LOC. That is what an LOC is for - to convert the high-level speaker output to a low-level RCA cable. All amps have low-level RCA inputs, not all have speaker level inputs. Many amps also have some crossover functions (hi-pass, low-pass, subsonic).

The stock "tweeter" has a capacitor which will block low frequencies from damaging it - that is a crude crossover. If you get a good component speaker set (separate 6.5" & tweeter) they will have a "fancy" crossover designed just for those two speakers.

Can I just use the crossovers on the amp instead of the passive crossovers that came with my components?

You can, I would guess the crossovers that came with components would be better sounding as they are designed for those specific speakers
