Product Details

Eminence PX2:3K5 2-Way Speaker Crossover 3,500 Hz

Eminence px cabinet-ready crossovers feature advanced circuit design to both preserve the crossover and your HF drivers. A common crossover problem is L-pad failure brought about by winding burnout when maximum attenuation is prolonged. Full attenuation concentrates the maximum voltage drop in a small winding area - a potentially damaging state even with high-power L-pad devices. In px crossovers, current is limited when the high frequency level control is set to '0' on its scale (±9 dB attenuation). A secondary benefit of the design is to form a voltage divider across the high frequency driver. The high-pass protection uses custom-built aerospace lamps. The tungsten filaments effectively track the program material, dynamically maintaining a safe maximum current level to the high frequency driver without introducing distortion. This circuitry provides smooth 3:1 analog compression during input overload conditions over 250 watts RMS. At full drive level approaching clipping, the electrical attenuation to the protected high frequency driver is -4.5 dB. In every way, Eminence px crossovers are a technically superior product. For use with 8 ohm drivers.

Eminence PX2:3K5 2-Way Speaker Crossover 3,500 Hz
Eminence PX2:3K5 2-Way Speaker Crossover 3,500 Hz is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for 2-way Monitors & SpeakersI used this crossover on a pair of stage monitors I built recently. Each box had a 600w 15in speaker and a 20w yamaha 1.5in compression driver with alumimnum wide-dispersion horn. The attenuation switch and the HF driver protection that this unit offers work like a champ and my monitors sound fantastic, without my having to worry about constantly frying compression driver diaphrams. The fact that the unit was ready to go and had both speakon and 1/4in plugs wired in paralell was icing on the cake. I usually make my own crossovers for speakers I build, and I have to admit that I was a little reluctant to part with $90-something bucks per box...but in retrospect, I don't think I could have build them much cheaper, and not nearly with the professional fit and finish of these crossovers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It costs more, but it's worth it.I first bought one of these crossovers several years ago when one of the cheap stage monitors I had purchased for my band blew out. The cabinet was still good but some (or all) of the internal components had fried. Not knowing which of the three components was to blame I purchased a new 12" woofer, a 4x10 horn tweeter, and this Eminence 2-way crossover.The crossover was the single most expensive replacement part but it had all the features I was looking for: 1/4" and 4-pin Speakon inputs and "thru-puts", high power handling (400 Wrms), and it came premounted on a plastic plate to make it easy to mount to my existing cabinet.Four lead-wires are pre-soldered to the board and the ends are terminated with sockets to slide on the blade terminals found on most speakers. The four wires connect to the positive and negative terminals of the woofer and tweeter. The replacement woofer I purchased used larger terminals than what would fit in the sockets of this crossover so I had to cut the sockets off and install new ones.This crossover also comes with a lamp-type power sink that automatically kicks in when the input levels are too high. In my application, there is a cabinet port right next to where the crossover is mounted and on a dark stage you can see the lamp flash occasionally. It concerned me the first time it happened--I thought that something had shorted inside the cabinet, but it works just as it was designed, soaking up the excess power and keeping my replacement woofer and tweeter safe while still providing an adequate load for the power amp.Recently the second cheap stage monitor gave out and I didn't hesitate to buy another Eminence crossover to replace the one that had originally come with the cabinet.

What would the actual Ohm load be using 2x 8Ohm drivers (Basslite Neo 10 or 12) and an 8Ohm Tweeter (APT80)?

Asked by: Jimmy B
The load to the amplifier will be roughly 4 ohms.

I'm building a 2x12 bass cab using the 8 ohm eminence basslites, sold here. I'm pairing those two with a single apt-80 horn. How much would the low freq crossover point change if I'm running the low's at 4 ohms? Any suggestions for an alternative xover?

Asked by: Gage
Theoretically the crossover point on the low pass will roughly double, but those woofers start to roll off around 4kHz anyway so there should not be much of a difference audibly.

what colour wires go to the driver & what colour wires go to the tweeter on a eminence pk2;3k5 crossover ? i wonder if any1 can help me out ?  thanx

Asked by: holmesy
The red wire is the woofer positive, the orange is the horn positive. The brown and black are both negatives.

Currently have a dayton audio 3.5 K passive unit with a 4ohm stting but no L pad for the tweeter. Can you recommend an L pad I can put in line with an 8 ohm super tweeter ? Merry Christmas

Asked by: rus449
Any of our 8 ohm mono l-pads will work for this application. Generally you do not need a high powered version, but the one below will work fine.http://www.parts-express.com/speaker-l-pad-attenuator-50w-mono-1-shaft-8-ohm--260-255

Will this crossover work with a 4 0hm woofer I am using for a bass guitar cab

Asked by: rus449
The crossover point will change if you use a 4 ohm load instead of 8.

I was thinking of using this crossover for bass cabs I'm building, 2 Celestion 10" T1040, 16 ohm (2 in parallel=8ohm)

, and I want to use an 8 ohm horn so would the cab come out at 4 ohm using this crossover? Thanx
Asked by: Brucifer2000
No if you wire both woofers in to create an 8 ohm load, and then use an 8 ohm horn tweeter, the crossover sees them separately so the speakers combined load will be 8 ohms
