5 kHz High Pass 8 Ohm Crossover
I have a Yamaha EMX512SC PA system which powers PA Speakers (2-way, 12" woofer and a tweeter). We have a powered sub which runs thru the unpowered mono channel. The bass drum mic'd is too much for the PA speakers. would this work to pull the lows out
This will certainly pull the lows out but also most of everything else. I would consider the 100 Hz high pass instead which will only filter out low bass and kick drum frequencies while not taking anything else out.http://www.parts-express.com/100-hz-high-pass-8-ohm-crossover--266-462

I have an SWR bass cabinet that was given to me....without the tweeter or crossover apparently! I want to put the tweet back in and was wondering if this would suffice as the crossover or do I need something else? Help!
This will work as long as the tweeter is 8 ohm and can handle a crossover as low as 5kHz.

Will this crossover work with this tweeter and a 50 watt amp? The tweeter is 6 ohm but wo't that just change the crossover frequency? Tweeter is crackling now with just a cap http://www.parts-express.com/tang-band-25-1744s-1-ceramic-dome-tweeter--264-866
This crossover will work fine and would be much better than a cap by itself. The crossover point will change slightly, but it will go up instead of down so I would not worry about this as an ill affect.

Can you please tell me the dimensions of this crossover?
This board measures 4" long, 1" wide and 3/4" tall at the highest point.

conversion to low pass
i'm planning on buying a few of these & converting some of them to a low pass crossover since i can't find a matching one on the site. that way i'll have low-pass for the woofer & high-pass for the tweeter. seems a simple matter of some soldering skills. i could just buy a 2-way, but that's less fun and costs more. anyone have concerns?i haven't decided on which woofers to use below, but i'm leaning toward the Aura. this will be an in-wall experiment.thanks in advance, & i appreciate the vast wealth of knowledge on this site.
The parts for a low pass are different from a high pass so you can't convert these. You should consider buying some pre-made 2-way crossovers which are available in a variety of crossover ranges here at parts express. If you want to build custom - you can web search "speaker crossover calculator". It will ask the impedance, crossover frequencey, and type of crossover you want (6,12,18, 24 db/oct rolloff)... Hit enter and a diagram will show the design and list all the parts.

Crossover needed for both drivers ?
I haver a generic 2 way pa cabinet with a 12" ans a compression horn driver. Do I need a cross over for both the 12" and the horn? I am sorry I cannot provide specifics on the drivers despite googling every number on them I can not find any info on them. These cabs are going to be used as monitors till I can afford to replace the speakers. I can tell you they are both 8 ohm and currently they are wired in parallel with no crossover. Someone before me tried to rewrite the speakers.Thanks in advance.
Someone made a mistake in rewiring them. You need a high-powered two way crossover for a PA speaker. You want the low frequencies to roll off from the tweeter to protect it. At the same time - you want the high frequencies of the woofer to roll off so neither driver is producing the same frequencies. You can get a board or a assembled connector dish you mount in the cabinet. 5000 seems a high point for a compression horn... I suggest search "crossovers" and check out these two part numbers:Eminence PXB2:3K5 2-Way Speaker Crossover Board 3,500 Hz Brand: Eminence Speaker | Model: PXB2:3K5 Part # 290-636 andEminence PX2:3K5 2-Way Speaker Crossover 3,500 HzBrand: Eminence Speaker | Model: PX2:3K5 Part # 290-622
