    Are you saying the mids are too loud relative to the sub?

    Somewhat, yes. They also pull enough power when turned up that the sub seems to pull back.

    You might be able to add a NP capacitor to the mids so they aren't getting the full range if they are getting a bass signal. That would reduce their load in the bass area.

    The amp has a fixed built in 180 hz crossover or lowpass filter. I might try that anyway. Thanks!

    Here is a good SPL vs Watt calculator I use when looking at speakers for your future reference.
