    Crossover Building

    Hey there, I have recently decided to go the DIY route to getting a set of component speakers in my truck. I think I will be getting some Seas Excel Mids or something similar with Morel Tweeters. Now onto the crossover, how complicated is it to build one? What do you all have to buy and is there any resources related to this? Or would it just be better to find a crossover somewhere that is already built and buy it instead of building it? Is the crossover customized to different types of music, speakers, power going through the system and such? Ahh so many questions. Anyways Thanks in advance for any info.

    -Jared

    Re: Crossover Building

    the crossover is usually designed with the specs of the components and the type of sound you want to achieve. there are different types of crossovers, 1st order, 2nd order and so on. most crossovers consist of inductors and capcitors wired in series and parallel depending on the type of crossover. you can find crossove caculators and equations on the web. there are some helpful sites on the links page of realm of excursion.

    Honestly, IMO, it's a better option to go active rather than passive.
