    I have a punch 360.2 and a punch 400.4. I installed an external electronic crossover and it made a big difference. An external crossover is much more efficiant than the crossover filters within an amp.

    Yep it will work. As previously stated it might make a difference. The problem with most built in crossovers is the slopes just aren't that great. Most are 12db an octave.

    crossover to amp that allready has one

    jlman--disconect the radio shack crossover
    and just use the crossover thats built into the amp
    try looking for audiocontrol 24xs electronic crossover
    or any brand--precision power,rockfordfosgate,kicker
    zapco,xtant, that has better quality parts built in.
    try looking for one with 24db slopes
