I have a set of Crystal 6.5" components and i fried one of the crossovers, so now i need to buy a new set of passive crossovers..

Only problem is that crystal wont sell them to the general public because they're getting audited, and i dont know of any retailers that sell crystal in northern CA.

So i want to buy some passive crossovers off of ebay, ive seen mb quart, infinity reference, and jl passiver component crossovers on there...

are most component crossovers the same, or how do i tell which ones to get that will best match the original crystal crossovers?

Call Crystal and ask for the Xover paramenters for your set, they should be able to tell you what the values are for the Midrange and tweets, then you can go to www.madisound.com and have them custom build a xover for your set for ~$25.00 each with much better components.

Good Luck

Thanks Mike.

I took your advice and called Crystal. What a big help that was! Their customer service rep was an idiot. He lied and tried to avoid doing any work to get me the info i needed-didnt return my calls or fax me the info i requested, even tried to defer me to sounddomain to solve the problem. Im going to buy some MB Quart crossovers off of ebay which powered a component set with similar rms.. Hope that works. F*** Crystal, next time i'll shell out the extra $ and go with some new adire kodas.

I used to have a set of MTX Black Gold Components and the Xover that was with them was destroyed. So instead of going with all new comps I bought an MB Quart 3 way crossover and used that instead. It allowed for bi amping so I tried that and they sound better than they ever have. Just a thought.
