You didn't say if it was active or passive, but here is both:

Passive crossovers are easy to install. By definition, the only type of connections they require are to your speaker line. They typically get installed between the end of the speaker wire and the speaker. Connection should be fairly simple, just like hooking up the speaker itself.

Now F-Mod crossovers modify the audio signal before it is amplified. They accept the patch cord from your receiver on one end, and then plug directly into the preamp inputs on your amplifier. They are also easy to install, and don't require additional wiring.

 An active crossover requires a little more work. You have to connect 12-volt power, ground, and a turn-on lead. The active crossover gets installed between your receiver and your amplifier. A lot of active crossovers have both speaker-level and preamp inputs, so they can usually work with either type of connection. The outputs will be preamp connections to your amplifier. Hope that helps.

I just purchased 2 old Peavey SP-2 and SP-3 speakers. How do I wire from the crossover to the speakers so the horns and 15's are wired in correct.


These cabinets are self contained and you do not use a crossover with them. The speakers do NOT come out to separate connectors. You just drive these with an amplifier. DO PAY ATTENTION to the power rating... you are safe using an amplifier with a MAXIMUM of 150 Watts RMS per speaker cabinet. More than that and running them loud and you will be replacing the speakers. These will cover a 40 foot square room at comfortable level.

Cerwin Vega SUB8...how do I connect


grady66,
We will start with the easy one, Phase. The phase selector is a setting that can be adjusted by sound; which one sounds better? Either one will work fine. It's mainly for situations where the sub enclosure is located at a distance or behind the listening area. The 'in and out' crossover selector and the input from the receiver goes together. The 'in and out' crossover selector is asking if you want to use the internal crossover to block the bass from getting to the satellite speakers. Most home surround sound receivers only have the one sub out and most subs have both left and right inputs. When there is a single signal being fed to the sub you use the subs left input or buy a splitter and send the signal into both left and right, but either way will work equally the same.

There is two ways to connect the speakers to the receiver.

1) Cross-over 'In': you connect the output speaker wires from the receiver to the speaker inputs on the sub and the speaker outputs on the sub to the satellite speakers; the sub will get its sound from the input speaker wires.

2) Cross-over 'Out': you connect the sub to the receiver using the receiver's single sub out, then connect the satellite speakers directly to the receiver's speakers outputs; in this configuration the satellite speakers are given a full range of signal including the bass.

I have used #2 with the same system and had great results.

Car speakers cut out (no sound) when volume turned up


I would check the crossovers.
If you are turning it up too loud, then the amp may be clipping (into distortion) and this is then setting the protection circuits off in the crossovers.

Im having trouble installing the sps-600c alpine speaker system. i need a wiring diagram or somthing as im un farmiliar with split speakers that dont have a cross over.


Hello lucal_s2000,

Well, actually those 600c's do have a crossover. It's encapsulated in the wiring you got with the components. Your head unit or amp speaker outputs connect directly to the woofers. The inline crossovers have a 12" wire on one end and a 22" wire on the other end. Connect the 22" side to the 2nd set of terminals on the woofers, and the 12" side to your tweeters, keeping all of the positives and negatives straight.

Here's an image of the connections.

I have 2 crossfire S6.o speakers and 2 5" cf-25 speakers, they were part of a comp. set i belive, do i need a crossfire cross over to hook this up?


no problem. I was in a rush to leave - however wanted to give you the information you wanted.

All the pre-packaged crossover is - is mass produced, neatly packaged (and may have a built in protection circuit (fuse or lightbulb) to protect the tweeter.

You can make your own OR run full range OR use the one on your amplifier (if equipped).

If you have a rockford set, or massive audio etc. - really doesnt matter.

If you want further info let me know.

No power


You probably have ONE of the speakers wired out of phase.

If the speakers are wired correctly, you may have the crossover set to high pass instead of low pass.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

I am building my own speaker for he first time.i have 2 subb woofers/mid and tweeter but only ave three way cross over what would be the best and safest way of wiring up the speakers?


Hi first thing: do you have a passive or active crossover??
  1. Passive crossover: you can connect the two output together to your subwoofer to have in the same time the low bass and the mid range of frequency.
  2. Active crossover: NO solution you have choose one out put of your crossover, i guess the best is the low output, but the choice is in your hand try the the two output(low/mid) once and choose the best for you
Let me know, bye

Bi-amp


After examining a picture of a 5802 ( I have been servicing adcom for over 20 years ), these are not bi amp posts, but bi wire posts.

Bi-amp means that 2 amps are being used, one for highs, one for lows. This means that you have no crossovers in the speakers, instead, you have an electronic crossover between the amps and the pre-amp. The highs and lows are separated in the electronic crossover. One amp handles the lows, one handles the highs.

Bi-wire means that you have the crossovers still inside the speakers. The amp handles the full range of music ( highs-mids-lows ). Different kinds of speaker wire produce different results. If you have bi-Wire terminals on your speaker, they come with shorting wires, that tie the tweeter + to the woofer + on the back of the speaker, and the tweeter - to the woofer - . When the shorting wires are removed completely, you have now electrically separated the tweeter and woofer from each other, while maintinaing the crossovers ( inside the speaker ) for each.When this is done, you can now bi-wire the speakers and amp, and use different kinds of wire for the lower frequencies and the upper frequencies, depending on your ears ( everyone hears a little differently, thats why there are so may makers of components, and wire ).

Why do we have crossovers?.....the tweeter voice coils ( the things that make the sound ) are made of hair thin wire. This wire cannot handle much power and if you were to put bass in to a tweeter, you would burn the tweeter out almost instantly. A tweeter is a very light, fast moving device which can react very quickly to high frequency sounds ( symbols, triangles, guitar strings....). Woofers are more rugged. They have voice coils made of heavier wire and are designed for larger movements that Bass demands. Subsequently, woofers aren't very good for high frequencies because they are slower devices.

So what do we do ?.....Keep the lows away from the tweter and the highs away from the woofer.....thats the job of the crossover.

In the event that your speaker has the crossover OUTSIDE the speaker box, you should check ( as always ) with the manufacturer of the speaker to see how it can be changed to suit your needs. Remember to always read and follow your owners manual. Good luck....Rob
