    Icon6 Need a new crossover for my front components, what sould the crossover point be?

    I need a new crossover for my JBL P560C components, the frequency response on these are 55-23000Hz, running 75w RMS at 2 ohms, receiving just around 150w RMS (rated at 210) from the amp. I gotta say these are some very good SQ comps, and I don't want to ruin them with a bad crossover.

    There are a lot of options on the internet, but most are rated for 4 ohms, and I don't know what the stock crossover has, but it sounded good! I could get something adjustable, like 3kHz or 6kHz, but I'm guessing the sweet spot is somewhere in between, probably on the higher side.. but I don't know.

    What do you think a good crossover point between the woofer and the tweeter should be for a good front stage?

    Thanks!

    edit: now that I think about it, if the total impedance of both comps is 2 ohms, then do I need a 4 ohm crossover?

    Re: Need a new crossover for my front components, what sould the crossover point be?

    Good news! I emailed Harman Audio and they told me that the "The crossover is a passive 2-way filter with a 2.5kHz high and low pass frequency output."

    I'll probably end up getting a 3kHz crossover, and if it would be easy to add a mid-range tweeter in the side-mirror triangle that would be nice, but I have gone without music for too long and I'll probably take the easy route and just get a crossover for the speakers I've got.

    Any suggestions on determining the quality of the crossover, or anything else to look for?
