Speaker Wire Terminal Plate with 550 Hz High Pass Filter
Still learning the terms- Someone simplify explanation please?
I am trying, really trying to learn crossovers. Terms, applications, the math, designing, laying out, building, etc.- with the goal of being able to create my own. Unfortunately, I am still very green.I think I follow what this terminal does, but can someone tell me in a simple way what this is used for? The two sets of terminals- confused. And it's listed as a 55Hz High Pass, meaning it "lets in" frequencies above 550Hz, correct?So following that logic, that I am unsure of, would one use this in a cabinet with Mid / Tweets and amplify a second cabinet (or possibly the same one) with a woofer in it? Run two channels of amplification: one to this terminal and one to a woofer? That would mean involving a different "low pass" crossover of some type for the woofer... right?Am I on the right track here? Please, if I am out of the ballpark, tell me. What's a typical use for this terminal?
This unit is used as a filter for a midrange speaker in a 3 way box. It's a bit unusual [in a 3 way speaker setup you use a 3way crossover--one for the woofer/midrange and tweeter]. But it's priced so low that the capacitors, coils and resistors would cost much more. PE has a great section about crossover component parts "crossover values" & "building loudspeakers". There you will find valuable information on how to build your own stuff. I suggest a stock 3 way crossover for your first attempt--unless you have a two way speaker box [the crossover is far easier to build]. Have fun with it!!!
