    BASS blockers? help plz!

    i just got my amp installed, finally, and its pushing a thunder8000 sub, now when i put a large bass setting on my deck, my infinity reference 6.5''s rattle, because that low frequency (meant for the sub) is goin into the small speakers....

    i dont wana buy componet speakers right now. i have always heard about bass blockers, that can stop all the low frequency to speakers..

    anyone know where i could find them, or what brands to look for? i looked on carstereoonline.com and ABSOLUTE was the only brand i found... and i konw that isnt the brand i want to buy from, unles they make GOOD bass blocks, unlike any other product they make..

    so plz, any feedback would be great... thanks.

    Pi is some magical nubmer arrived at by some of the OLD mathmeticians.. deals with a lot of stuff.. it's 22/7.. equates to 3.14(neverendingdecimal, so far).... used for circle stuff, and electrical stuff, and physics.. electronics... etc etc etc

    22/7 = 3.1428571428571428571428571428571
    Pi = 3.141592653589793238462643383279502884197169399375

    its the same is it?

    EDIT - 22/7 is the fractional number clsoest to Pi's value (of which the first 50 digits are stated above...)

    want some more digits?
