View Full Version : Need Crossover Advice

Mmkay so I have a chance to get a set of CDT CL 6.5A mids and tweets for pretty cheap but no crossover. Here are the speakers:

WoofersEtc.com - CL-61A - CDT Audio Classic 6.5" 2-Way Component Speakers (http://www.woofersetc.com/p-1090-cl-61a-cdt-audio-classic-65-2-way-component-speakers.aspx)

And here are the crossovers if I want to buy them new from woofersetc:

WoofersEtc.com - Satnet 400 - CDT Audio 2 Way Crossovers (http://www.woofersetc.com/p-3481-satnet-400-cdt-audio-2-way-crossovers.aspx)

Now I know next to nothing about buying crossovers and I would prefer not to pay the new price for these but I doubt I'll be able to find them used. Going active is gonna be too expensive. Does anyone know of crossovers available for relatively cheap that would go nicely with these speakers? Or can you learn me about buying these things?

Thanks! :)

You could always build your own....that is, if your willing to do a bit of learning

Thanks guys - sry for the late reply i was called to work offsite and my phone died :p:

guys I'm torn and I need help deciding. I have a set of BNIB Zeus 6.5 comps that I had originally intended to use, but I am unsure now. Sic was recommending them; said they ate lots of other more expensive speakers omnomnomnom..... But im not sure i'll be entirely happy with them. I'm not sure if I should jump on this CDT set and get one of the crossovers (I can't find specs on the Focal one - anyone?) or just throw in the Zeuses and call it a day... I like loud SQ and lots of midbass... I was thinking if I got the CDTs I'd try and sell the Zeuses (not sure if people would want em) but meh...

What do you think? Money is medium-quite tight.

edit: started a more relevant thread :p:
