    Inline Crossover

    I currently have the 6.5 Alpine type-S component speakers as my front stage. It uses an inline crossover instead of the regular external crossovers you usually see. I was wondering, would using different crossovers help improve the sound?

    nope, only thing that could possibly make a diff in respect to the xover is changing the xover point/slope. simply changing the type wont make an audible difference.

    It's a cheap speaker coupled with a cheap crossover design. There is only so much you can get out of them even with a better crossover. I don't see why switching to a different crossover box should make them necessarily better. Each component speaker pair requires crossovers with certain crossover frequencies, L-pads, etc. I don't think picking up a random crossover box will necessarily match the speakers you have. This is why a lot of people prefer using active (electronic) crossovers.
