Product Details

Eminence PXB2:2K5CX 2-Way Speaker Crossover Board 2,500 Hz

Eminence pxb board-only crossovers are a lower cost alternative to the "cabinet ready" models and are targeted specifically for custom cabinet projects as they do not include the terminal cup, input connectors or L-pad found on the "cabinet ready" models. They feature an advanced circuit design to both preserve the crossover and your drivers. A 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 pxb crossovers are a technically superior product. For use with 8 ohm drivers.

Eminence PXB2:2K5CX 2-Way Speaker Crossover Board 2,500 Hz is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Replaced the Crossovers in my JBL 305'sI replace both of them so it would be more consistent... went from 1800 to 2500crossover but it is such a small change it didn't change how the speaker sounded much and helped to protect the twitter more... Changed both of them for consistency give they are only $45 each.... JBL want $180 to replace one... crazy

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eminence 2 way crossover for live musicI purchased four of these crossovers over a year ago to replace some made in China crossovers that were shorting out. This Eminence crossover works great, improved the overall sound of my cabinets and has better mid driver protection. I recent started having a similar problem with one of my floor monitor 2 way cabs and this crossover saved the day and greatly improved the monitor! Purchase one or more and you will be glad you did! Parts Express has always been great to work with!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great crossover with outstanding featuresThis is the crossover you need if the drivers in your system call for the frequency offered with this crossover.The light fuse acts like an analog compressor absorbing the high level transients which in other crossovers get to your tweeters or compression drivers. The fuse is field replaceable and Parts Express sells them.We use this crossover in professional applications and haven't lost a high frequency driver yet with them in use in the system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great CrossoverI am very happy with this crossover. It sounds great, very easy to mount and very easy to connect to the drivers and the input jack of my cabinet. Great price and super fast shipping from Parts Expess!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does its job wellThis model crossover is intended for use with the "CX" coaxial drivers from Eminence, to cross over from the low frequency driver to a compression horn driver screwed onto the back of the LF driver. It works well for that purpose.I built a stage monitor for a small venue using an Eminence "Acoustinator" CX2008 paired with an Eminence ASD1001 horn driver and this crossover board. With that combination, it was necessary to add an extra 2.5dB of padding to the horn driver, because the Acoustinator CX is less sensitive than other Eminence CX models.The enclosure is 0.7 cu ft with a port tuned to 63 Hz. F3 for the system is 60 Hz, with smooth response out to 20 kHz. Maximum SPL (modeled) is excursion-limited to 108 dB at 90 Hz with 40 W input. In the midrange, it can hit peaks of 115 dB with 200 W input, although I expect it would be unwise to drive it that hard continuously in the setup described.

Eminence PXB2:2K5CX 2-Way Speaker Crossover Board 2,500 Hz

Can I use this to replace blown crossover in jbl control 29 speakers.  Running in 8 ohm not using transformer taps

Asked by: Stoli
Yes. The Control 29AV use a crossover at 2.5kHz at 3rd order. The Eminence Crossover is a 12dB per octave slope ( 2nd order) at 2.5KHz at 250Watts.

Can I use this to replace the x-over in an older Definitive Technology center speaker model CLR? It distorted badly until I only ran the woofer directly from the amp then no more distortion.

Asked by: Iceroadman
Unfortunately without knowing the original crossover points I cannot recommend a replacement. Anything off the shelf will change the sound of the speaker, you may consider trying to get the original repaired first.

Does anyone know if I can use this crossover for a cabinet containing a compression tweeter and two 15" woofers? My cabinet is the older Kustom 2X15 pa Cabinets KCS215. It's a 4ohm cabinet

Asked by: Restrayned
Unfortunately this crossover is only designed to work with 8 ohm loads. You may want to consider part number 260-142 which has a jumper for 4 ohm woofer loads.

If I use an 8 ohm woofer and an 8 ohm horn driver, what is the load?

Asked by: Cjim
The crossover separates the drivers so it is a 8 ohm load overall.
