    Icon32 Crossover Question

    Hello I have a question i wanted to get a better sound for my Highs and Mids and wanted to know what Crossovers or maybe even bass blockers i can use to better my sounds my voice setup is

    2 10" Ev DL10X the impedance is 8 ohms 100-2000 hz

    2 6.5" beymas 6mi90 the impedance is 8 ohms and the freq 150hz- 8.0khz

    i dont remeber what kind of tweeters but there 4" dome titanium bullet tweeters there 8 ohms

    The amp i have runing to this is a SoundStream TRX 4.880

    hopefully somone can lead me in the right direction

    Re: Crossover Question

    Your amp has adjustable crossovers built-in (HPF 50Hz-500Hz & LPF 50Hz-150Hz).
    Are you talking about a passive x/o for the mids & tweets?

    Re: Crossover Question

    Yeah I knew I had a crossovers on the amp. Just thought I could clear my voice alittle more... is there anything I can do to get a better and maybe little more louder voice out of my speakers each speaker is ran to there own channel... but they had told me to run everything and bridge it and run it al to one channel and just get bass blockers for the speakers but tha sounds alittle nuts to me...

    Re: Crossover Question

    being that that beyma play up fairly high you can find a crossover with a higher high pass filter. 5 k or so woud be fine.check out partsexpress.com and look at the dayton 3 way crossovers.

    Re: Crossover Question

    can you adjust the slope on it from 0 to 180? Would that help

    So you're powering each speaker independently on its own channel, resulting in the full range of frequencies being produced by each speaker...correct?
    If so you'll need a HU, amp or external processor w/ active crossover capabilities to filter out the frequencies the drivers don't like. I would'nt recommend it to a novice w/o a good understanding of crossovers/slopes & phase relationships.
    Or you can get a passive crossover & take an educated guess @ what x/o points will work best. It would kinda be a shot in the dark, but then you could bridge the amp & send each channel to the passive x/o which will then split the frequencies between the front speakers accordingly.
    I think your best bet would be to sell the fronts & pickup a new set of components. Bridge the amp & use the passive crossover that is supplied/designed for the comps.

    No. I think you're referring to phase
