Product Details

Eminence PXB3:1K6 3-Way Speaker Crossover Board 500/1,600 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.

Planning to rebuild 3 way speakers. Will this x-over matching well with these drivers;Dayton Audio DC300-8 12" Classic Woofer,FaitalPRO 6FE100 6" Professional Midrange Midbass Woofer 8 Ohm,Dayton Audio DC28FS-8 1-1/8" Silk Dome Shielded Tweeter?

The crossover point of 1,600 Hz for the tweeter is a little on the low side. I would recommend the 500/3,500 below. The midrange might also be a little more sensitive than the other two drivers so an L-pad may be necessary to bring it down a bit.http://www.parts-express.com/eminence-pxb3-3k5-3-way-speaker-crossover-board-500-3500-hz--290-652

Woofer 8ohms 26to2000hz, Midrange 4ohms 400to4800hz Tweeter 1000to20000hz. This crossover is at 500/1600hz this would double in frequency to 1000/3200hz because of the 4ohm midrange. Can i use this crossover for this applacation.    

Asked by: output
Yes it will affect the crossover point of the mid range. The high pass will double (1,000 Hz) and the low pass will be cut in half (800 Hz).

I'm planning on building a 3-way speakers system .1woofer @ 8ohms 1midrange@ 8ohms and 1tweeter@ 8ohms . I want to add another midrange@ 8ohms. What will be the load for thoses two midrange speakers. will this still work for this croossover?

Asked by: output
Two 8 ohm mids would either be wired in series or parallel, providing a 16 or 4 ohm load respectively. This will change the crossover point and it would not be able to be used with that crossover.

Building a 3-way speaker system. Will this crossover work with these drivers. 21'' woofer 25hz~2.5khz 99db 10'' Midrange 300hz~4000khz 99.6db compression horn tweeter 500hz~20000khz 103db

Asked by: output
This crossover will work fine with that application. You may need an L-pad on the tweeter since it is slightly more sensitive. I would recommend part number 260-252 for this.
