Rolls SX45 Stereo Two-Way Mini Crossover w/Sub Output
Would this be a good option for cutting low frequencies from bookshelf speakers that only produce upper bass signals?
Q: Would this be a good option for cutting low frequencies from bookshelf speakers that only produce upper bass signals?I have some bookshelf speakers which only go down to a certain frequency. I also have an older, pretty powerful, yamaha receiver which doesn't have a crossover and puts out a full range signal. I noticed that when playing a full range signal at mid to loud volumes the woofer on the bookshelf speaker ( 6.5'' woofer ) would move a lot. The sound was very boomy, but less crisp, also the surround of the woofer itself seems to 'crease' sort of, like it wasn't made to be played like that. Then I found out from the makers of the speaker it's not good to play full range signal through these speakers. They offered a high pass filter but it's more expensive and has less options for outputs and only 2 'set' frequency options.I'm just looking for something inexpensive that I can use with my older yamaha receiver to cut lower signals from my bookshelf. and the sub out option seems pretty cool too.Thanks in advance. I'll check back soon.
In a nutshell, no. This is a line level crossover and will not work with standard speaker level outputs. You might want to consider something like our 80 or 100 Hz high pass crossovers.http://www.parts-express.com/cat/assembled-passive-crossovers/308?kg=25577|5148

what freq is the Mono low set at?
The mono low output is set to the same frequency as the low output, only it combines both left and right channels into a dual mono output in case you would want to use this as a dedicated subwoofer crossover.

1. Is 'input' considered master volume for signals put through the device? 2. Is there any risk/danger in putting the highs to max and lows to max at all? Thanks
1. Yes, this controls the input gain of the crossover. 2. Yes there is a risk in doing this. You want to make sure you follow standard gain structure guidelines. Having both outputs maxed could potentially clip the input of an amplifier and toast whatever is plugged into it, or the amplifier itself.
