Product Details

Eminence PXB2:3K5 2-Way Speaker Crossover Board 3,500 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 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. Dimensions: 6" L X 4" W X 1" T.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Get the right crossoverI bought 4 of these for some cabinets I built . Each has (2 )12 Eminence Delta 12's and a Selenium DT210 horn driver. Each cabinet is run from one side of a Europower 2500. They sound ok but the Xover point is way to high. I thought this would save the horns but the tweeter fuse blows all the time (the horn survives so that part works) The crossover is well built and I'm sure I'm over powering them a bit. Just be sure to get the right crossover. The (2) 8 ohm woofers cause the crossover point to rise into the 4500/5000 range which makes a midrange honk. These crossovers are really designed for a single woofer/horn combo. I don't see the crossover I need at Parts Express. Maybe one of their Guru's will help me build some. Overall, they're good crossovers (except the fuse holder clips will break very easily), just not robust enough for my application. As you approach their power limit you can hear the crispness of the horn get muddy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 18db tweeter roll offI needed a good crossover for a 4 1/2 inch woofer with a soft dome tweeter. I put them together with only a capacitor for a crossover. System sounded good at first but lacked balance. Once I installed this Eminence crossover, the system sound more normal. I have high quality drivers which needed a high quality crossover. I couldn't be anymore pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eminence PXB2:3K5 2-Way Crossover Board 3,500 HzThe crossovers are well made and sounded great on some JBL D140's and horns. I made mounting boards to make the instalation easier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sounds Good So FarI used this crossover in a gutted Yamaha S115IV cabinet with an Eminence PSD:2002-8 horn driver, Goldwood GT800PB horn, and Dayton PA380-8 woofer. I hooked it up tonight for the first time with my Crown XLS1000 amp in Bridge mode. That's supposed to be 700 watts @ 8 ohms. The cabinet sounds very good even at high volume. I can't imagine that it sounded any better with the original equipment. I plan to use the cabinet and amp combo as a monitor for the drummer. Shouldn't hear any complaints that it isn't loud enough.Anyway, the crossover was very easy to mount and wire, and seems to work very well.

Will this x-over work as replacement in an 8 ohm 4x10" +horn Peavey bass cab?

Asked by: boomboombernie
Yes as long as the horn can handle a crossover point of 3.5kHz without a problem.

I would like to use this crossover with two 12 ohm woofers for 6 ohm load of course in a two way with a foster horn tweeter rated at 8 ohms , would this crossover work ok at the 6 ohms instead of 8 ohms. 

Asked by: spunk
Yes, there will be no real ill effects of using a 6 ohm combination instead of an 8 ohm load.

I have a set of Apogee professional stage monitors with a 10 woofer and piezo horn, the crossovers both had broken ceramic resistors and burnt coils and no longer passed signal to the horns. Would these be a suitable replacement? Is the crossover frequenc

Does it hurt to "overbuild on a cross over. If I have a 250 w 2-way cab, is there any drawbacks to using a 400 w crossover

Asked by: decibel
There is nothing wrong with doing this, this simply means the crossover can handle more power than the other components in the system.

I have: Eminence ASD1001 1" HF Titanium Horn Driver Eminence Delta-12A 12" Driver Is this the right crossover for this pair? The ASD1001 recommends using a 2.5k crossover, but the RMS for that crossover is a little lower than I would like.

Asked by: Drose
Yes this crossover will work for that combination.
