Blog Forums DIY Speakers and Subwoofers Which Crossover is right for this application Reply To: RE: Which Crossover is right for this application


That’s the beauty of DIY, you can go into it as much or as little as you want. It all depends on your individual expectations. Plus, you’ll find that more often than not, the thing you want is not necessarily available, but something close is. For example, even though the 3.5 ohm resistor is available on PE’s website, but you are more likely to find 3 ohm or 3.3 ohm. 10.28 ohm, about the closest you’d get is a 10 ohm and a .22 ohm in series (10.22), and when you take into account tolerance, you could be closer or further from your target. It’s all about working with the best option available to you at that time. 

Now if you want, they have adjustable L-Pads that you could wire in and adjust to taste. That’s the way they used to be done.

Now, for the x-over, Even though you can design for a specific frequency, the readily available parts will seldom put you exactly “there”. You can get close, and that’s usually way more than good enough. So, looking through the pre-assembled units on PE, would a 2,000 or 1,800, or 1,600 Hz x-over work? Yes, they’ll work, and probably quite well. Will it be within acceptable limits for you? ¯_(ツ)_/¯
Do you want to make it to a “finer” degree than just buying off-the-shelf? Then we’ll help you learn and gain the confidence to do just that.
