100 Hz Low Pass 4 Ohm Crossover
Impedance of crossover
What is the Impendance of this crossover that will be added to the amplifier?
This should have a 9mH inductor which if these use the 18 awg I core sould be 0.56 ohms.On a side note if this does indeed use the same 18 AWG I core inductor as part 266-578 it is cheaper to buy these then the inductor by itself, but that makes me question if these do use the 18 awg inductors.

for a dvc (2+2ohm)...
if i combine both 2ohm coils on a sub to run a 4ohm load from amp, do i still need two of this, one for each coil, or can i use the 2ohm coils wired together/4ohm with a single one of these low pass filters?
If you wired the coils in series for a 4 ohm load you only need to use one low pass filter between the subwoofer and amplifier.

Two drivers using Hp & Lp ?
Building my first project speaker.I'm going to use a 15" Boston Acoustic subwoofer and a Goldwood GW-10PC-4 10".What i want to know is, if i'm using a 100hz Low pass Filter for the 15" and a 100Hz high pass filter for the 10", will my impedance will stay a 4ohm because i'm using filter ? Or it will drop a 2ohms ?Thanks
It will stay at 4 ohms but may drop to 3-3.5 around the crossover point. This is fairly typical, if you have an amplifier that handles a 4 ohm load this will not be a problem.

What type of 2nd Order Crossover?
Is it Linkwitz-Riley, Bessel, Butterworth, or Chebychev?
This (and all our pre-made crossovers, unless otherwise stated) is a 2nd order Linkwitz-Riley configuration.

Will this work with 2 8 ohm subs wired in parallel?
Sure will. Two 8 ohm subs wired in parallel gives a 4 ohm load.

Will wiring a 4 ohm crossover to a 4 ohm speaker reduce overall ohm load to 2 ohms
No, crossovers are designed for specific loads, 4 ohm, 8ohm, 16ohm, etc... if designed correctly the impact on final impedance of the speaker should be minimal.Since the effect of the capacitive and inductive reactance depend on the load impedance different values of both capacitors and inductors must be used for speakers of different impedance values.To achieve the same crossover frequency on a 4 ohm load as an 8 ohm load you must half the inductance and double the capacitance. The opposite is true for a 16 ohm load vs. an 8 ohm load.
