Speaker Crossover High-Pass 8 Ohm 3,000 Hz 100W
Speaker Crossover High-Pass 8 Ohm 3,000 Hz 100W is rated 4.2353 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from a necessary component for planar tweeterThis affordable crossover is integrated in a mid-powered home theater (100 wpc into 8 ohms) to allow only frequencies over 3k to reach mid/tweeters (Dayton Audio PT2C-8 Planar Tweeter, in this case, but applicable to others depending on your needs). The slope (12 dB/octave) separates the mids/highs in a more definite manner, than 6 dB/octave, for example. Using these cigarette-packaged-sized crossovers, bass is prevented from reaching your tweeters that would not only distort sound, but also could damage or destroy them with over-powering signals. Generally speaking, hardware such as this is instrumental in planning/building/customizing any speaker system. The circuit board's construction is solid and functions very well but appears somewhat crudely made. Spades are used for connectors, but I soldered each lead instead. The board has extra holes so it was easy to screw it out of sight behind panel speakers.Pros: simple, inexpensive, functions well, sturdy, won't break if dropped -Cons: very little, you have to find a place to hide it, if not inside your enclosure

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 3 Pairs of Old Altecs..I recently ordered 6 of these and 4 of the phenolic ring tweeters to replace old dead ones in 3 old pairs of Altec speakers. they sound great now, possibly smoother than ever. Well worth the price. INSTANT IMPROVELENCE (as Frank Zappa might say)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great little problem solver.I have recently completed a pair of full rangeline array's, or columns technicaly , using 8 of Dayton Audio's little RS100-4 full range driversper side.The results were quite impressive, but I desired a little more sparkle up top. Not wanting to incorparate a full crossover network, I opted for this high pass filter and used HI-VI's SD1.1-a tweeters with rather pleasing results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Improved PerformanceThese -12db crossovers were use to replace the simple capacitive (-6db) networks in my ALTEC SANTANA Speaker Systems. They produced a much smoother response at the crossover frequency and improved transients from the tweeters while providing increased protection from unwanted low frequency sound energy. These units are an excellent upgrade.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works wellGot a little confused on the +w +mr markings on the board but other than that the filter works well. It seemed to me that the tweeters were comfortable with the signal they were getting. High frequency was smooth sounding, not harsh. A vast improvement over the simple capacitor that JBL had installed in the cabinet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great simple crossoverThis Crossover worked as advertised. Good value, and easy to install. I would buy them again.

Speaker Crossover High-Pass 8 Ohm 3,000 Hz 100W

where does it say how of the input power gets sent to the tweeter and the woofer?

Asked by: optimizer
The crossover does not specify how much specific power is distributed. Generally in a two way, the woofer will get 75-85% of the power and the tweeter the rest, depending on where it is crossed.

Will this work with the Minimus 7 speakers?

I picked up a pair of minimus 7w (walnut version) speakers that were in absolute pristine condition with the exception that the terminal cup/crossover is missing from them. No wiring, nothing. Will this simple little crossover, along with me buying a new terminal cup do the job for these speakers? Thanks in advance!
Asked by: Chiguy
Yes this will work fine with the Minimus 7 speakers.

Does this actually add 8 ohms to the curcuit or is it just made to run with an 8 ohm circuit. I am trying to figure this in with my speaker choice.

Asked by: Bryanw83
This is designed to be used with an 8 ohm speaker, crossovers do not add or take away impedance.

terminal markings phase II

i am a bit of a rookie, where would the negative input from the receiver go ? i see the positive but not the negative ??? i am thinking of using these for a secondary system i am beginning to put together thx
Asked by: mlpaci
All of the negative connections are connected to the common terminals on the crossover.

4 ohm version?

need this in a 4 ohm version pretty bad
Asked by: FrankiE
We do not carry a 4 ohm version of this item, unfortunately. I've linked the appropriate components below for you to build your own 4 ohm high pass at 3kHz. You should place the capacitor in-line on the positive line of the speaker, and the inductor across both positive and negative lines, after the capacitor. I've included a simple diagram for reference. Our Technical Help section has quite a bit of information on crossovers, here's a link for your convenience:

surround sound?

would these be my best choice for building surround sound 7.1 set up?
Asked by: Strader
Best is a matter of opinion. Having said that, this crossover is suitable for any application where you need to cross a tweeter (or other 8 ohm speaker) at 3kHz. Whether it's for bookshelf speakers, mobile audio, or something altogether different, this crossover will perform the function for which it's designed.
