    Icon32 Need help with bass blockers!

    I have a pair of infinity 3 1/2s in my dash and when I turn my headunit up to high the cone hits the tweeter on one of them. I need help with selecting a capacitor to put on them. Id like to block out frequencies below 80hz or whatever you guys think woud be a good crossover point. Next, im not sure what kind of capacitor or any of the specs that go along with them. Please help me out!

    I would get some 300 hz bass blockers at least. 80 hz would be way to low because these have a gradual 6 db roll off.

    Hmm... Go to partsexpress.com and find yourself some bass blockers. I agree with custom, get something a tad higher than 80's. 80's are more for 6.5" - 7" sized speakers. 300hz seems like a good number to me. Even closer to 500-700hz if you have other good midbass/midrange drivers. Just play with your system and try it out.
