Product Details

Eminence PXB3:3K5 3-Way Speaker Crossover Board 500/3,500 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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Ok but...I bought this to replace my 30 year old DIY crossover thinking it would make my speakers sound better. Unfortunately, because the midrange on this design is only a 6db/octave slope instead of my current 12db/octave slope, it blew out my midrange within an hour. Ouch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great!Much more of a controlled and relaxed sound to where it's easier to hear new sounds from old favorite songs.500hz lowpass to me seems to give a little more punch down-low,who's complaining!

How do I hook-up two 8 ohm woofers to the low-pass filter part of the crossover?

Asked by: ibmclonne
You will have to wire the woofers in parallel, positive to positive and negative to negative.

I know this crossover uses 8ohm mids and tweets, but I was wondering if the woofer section is 4 and 8ohm like the dayton crossovers?

Asked by: Larry23
Unfortunately these will only work properly with 8 ohm drivers throughout. The Daytons have a jumper that allows a shift in the crossover point to make up for the change in woofer impedance, this is something no other crossovers we sell offer.
