View Full Version : Cheap x-over for rear fill = bassblockers?

Just need to keep the lows from blowing rear fill, but not sure what the cheap options are. Is a "bassblocker" about the only choice?

What is a bassblocker anyway? A resistor?

I think I'd like to highpass around 80-100 hz.

Yes its a resistor that does a cheap job of limiting the amount of low or high frequencies to pass through it.

They are a 100v capacitor. They have a 6db per octave slope. I have a set at 200htz and did not notice much difference in sound. A little less excursion on the speaker.

I have Sony 5x7s in the front doors of my car and stock 5x7s in the back deck. I currently have FIE on in my Pioneer DEH-P545 headunit because it sounds much better. I listen to a lot of rap and plan on getting 2 12"s soon. Does heavy bass hurt my stock speakers? I haven't noticed any distortion. And when I get subs, should I just unplug my rear speakers?
