    Crossover help

    Looking for some advice on a set of crossovers for some components I'm putting together. The person trading the speakers to me said "i would say 4000+hz at atleast a 18db slope for the tweeters and the mids play well from 3k and down they lack a little the 2000-4000 area but i am comparing them to type x scanspeak mids. so i would say 4000hz @ a 18db slope for tweeter and like 3500 and down and 12db slope "
    I don't know much about crossovers and would like some help finding some that fit this description. The speakers are Hertz HT25 tweets and RE 6.5C mids.

    Re: Crossover help

    Just find an xover that crosses at 3k -3.5khz 12db slope. Not too many passives I know use slopes steeper than 12db and certainly don't leave gaps or overlap.

    Something like this: Dayton Audio XO2W-3K 2-Way Crossover 3,000 Hz 260-144 or this Dayton Audio XO2W-3.5K 2-Way Crossover 3,500 Hz 260-146

    these work for a 4 or 8 ohm woofer but only 8 ohm tweeter. So be careful about your ohm loads when looking into passive xovers. You can browse ebay for some too

    Re: Crossover help

    I think the ht25 is 4ohm as is the mid.

    Re: Crossover help

    Which would you say is better for these speakers? The Hertz HSK: 3.2 at a 12db slope or the JL audio XO-2b: 24dB/octave highpass @ 4500Hz and 12dB/octave lowpass @ 4500Hz

    Re: Crossover help

    I'd go with the Hertz HSK of those. Something tells me that those RE mids won't like that high of an xover point...

    Re: Crossover help

    get some like mine. RF-60c xovers have adjustable slope cutoffs.

    Re: Crossover help

    Emailed PPI about the ppi 356cs and they said "We were not the manufacture at the time those were made and have no info on the older gear." Can't seem to find this info.
