Speaker Crossover High-Pass 8 Ohm 3,000 Hz 100W
Speaker Crossover High-Pass 8 Ohm 3,000 Hz 100W is rated 4.2778 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from SWEET SOUNDI needed the crossover in order to build a tweeter speaker, which could be attached to my guitar amp (Henriksen jazzamp 110). The crossover works great in combination with the Eminence APT80 tweeter; the sound is sweet, not metal sounding at all. The service was great too.

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.

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

I have the Optimus Pro LX5 Speakers w/ 5" woofer and 2x4 inch Linaeum Dipole Tweeter. Frequency Response is 80-25,000 Hz. Crossover is at 2.5 kHz. I use Pioneer bass mgmt.w/subwoofer set to 80 kHz. Is the #260-174 better than original? 

Asked by: oldnavymucm
No, the crossover in the original speaker is built around the drivers used and will provide the best sound you can get. This is only a high pass filter and uses standard textbook values based on an 8 ohm impedance. I would not recommend using this as a replacement.

Do you reccomend usage with the dc28 tweet? thanks

Asked by: Kristopher
This will work fine with that tweeter.

Will this work well with the Goldwood GT-510 tweeters along with the Goldwood GW-208/8 wired driectly to the amp in a 2-way box?

Asked by: Summit
Yes this combination will work well.

Could I run 2 8ohm full range woofers wired strait from this crossover since they have an extra common connection, or do you have to go one connected to the crossover, and then keep going from that woofer to the next speaker.

Asked by: dholt44
You can wire two woofers together either way for the same result. Both methods are parallel wiring.

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.
