Product Details

Speaker Wire Terminal Plate with 550 Hz High Pass Filter

This unique speaker wire terminal plate features a 550 Hz (assuming an 8-ohm impedance), 2nd-order, Linkwitz-Riley high pass filter that is perfect for midrange speakers. It combines a 3.32 mH iron-core inductor (that would normally sell for $10 by itself) with an electrolytic 27 µF capacitor and two 15 ohm, 15 watt resistors in parallel (in parallel with the speaker output). A polyswitch provides protection, and the spring-loaded speaker inputs are wired in parallel for daisy-chaining to another speaker or speaker cabinet.

Dimensions: Overall: 3-3/8" H x 2-9/16" W, Cutout: 2-3/4" H x 1-1/2" W.

Speaker Wire Terminal Plate with 550 Hz High Pass Filter
Speaker Wire Terminal Plate with 550 Hz High Pass Filter is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Volume loss too great for me - not usable.Great price, fine delivery. Used the 550 Hz low pass filter for Classic Woofer: fantastic. Used this High Pass filter for Tweeter: loss in volume for mid-tweeter was unacceptable. Could not make up low volume with Treble control on Lepai 20/20 amp. Huge difference when testing with a bypass wire around crossover. Striped the board off it and keep components for future projects. Terminal plate will cover hole in back of this custom speakers project.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cheap partsA good way to get parts on the cheap. Inductor was easy to unsolder and get off the board. I did order two and on one the top of the inductors was broken not worth sending back and it seems to work fine for what I needed.

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?
Asked by: Spaker
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!!!
