I have the infinity 605CS component set. I am running the tweeters already at -3db on the cross-over but I would like attenuate the tweeters even more than that if possible, say to -6db. (the cross over only has level and -3db)

Is there a way to do this either by buying something that goes in-line with the speaker wires, or by making something myself? I know I could buy a new cross-over, but that might cost as much as the component set itself.

Would also be helpful if the modification didn’t screw with the cross-over frequency. I speculate I could put a resistor in-line with the tweeter, effectively increasing the resistance of the speaker and lowering the power output but that changes the cross-over frequency I believe.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks, knew they must exist but didn't know what they were called.

Although, I can only find 8 ohm L-pads on the site. The one 4 ohm was discontinued. Do you know who sells a 4 ohm
