A crossover is a circuit that breaks down a whole spectrum of frequencies into groups. For example, your speaker has 3 individual speakers (drivers) in it. There is a woofer, mid and tweeter. A crossover will send the appropriate frequencies to each of the drivers. The woofer can not reproduce high frequencies so it doesn't make sense to send them there. The sam can be said for low frequencies and the tweeter. The crossover point defines the splitting point of the frequencies. Depending upon what sub-woofer you are using usually the crossover freqwuency is either 80 or 100. Most often it is 100.

Hope this helps,

I have a set of Infinities RS8 the Crossovers are shot and both of them is it 3 way or two way crossovers


Unlikely that the crossovers are shot, almost always the drivers go to protect the crossovers. What makes you think it's the crossovers?

Whats the correct order to run my mackie mixing board EQ and crossover together


You didn't mention any model #s, however, a typical set-up would be the following:
  • A Crossover is the last processor in-line before your amps. Always use a proper protection capacitor on your high end (horns, mid horns, tweeters, Piezos or High Horns to protect the diaphrams)

  • The equalizer can be placed anywhere between your mixer and crossover but should generally be placed after all other processing equipment and before your crossover.

Hope this helps.

MAckie 1604 VLZ Pro Mixer, running QSC 1850 with jbl's from main outs. I would like to hook up powered subwoofers. What is the correct pathway? kenshireman@msn.com


The best way is to use a two-way crossover between the mixer and the amplifiers. In your case, the low output from teh crossover would go to the powered subs, the highs to the QSC. Use the crossover adjustment to set the frequency crossover point to get the sound quality you require.

They also try to play the bass


a crossover cuts the certain tones out of the sound.example: the high side cuts out low and mid tones,or the mid side cuts out high and low. The only problems this could be is that the crossover is not set right or not wired right. These speakers should be plugged into the high side of the crossover. If wired right and set right then your crossover is no good.

I need installation manual


its not a subwoofer it is a midrange speaker. all you do is connect your outputs from the radio to the crossover then connect both the tweeter and midrange to the outputs on the crossover. it is called a component set.

Low pass crossover


Low-pass crossover
Both sets of inputs sum the left and right channels together and the
resulting signal is passed through an adjustable low-pass crossover before
being amplified. The crossover control allows you to adjust the upper limit
of the subwoofer's frequency response from 40 to 120 Hz. The subwoofer's
response will begin rolling off above the frequency you set this control to.
You should set the crossover frequency to obtain a smooth and seamless
transition from the subwoofer to the main speakers in your system. If your
main speakers are smaller units with limited low frequency output, you
may wish to choose a higher frequency (such as 100-120Hz) than you
would with larger speakers which have greater low frequency output. With
larger speakers, you might start with this control set lower, such as 80Hz.

How do you set this stuff?


Need more info..
How many amps and their RMS rated power.?
If one amp, how many channels + individual power for each channel?.
Two crossovers set at the same freq.is redundant and likely to cause more problems.
Do the front speakers have their own X-over? whats the X-over point? and what is their freq. response (total) are they separates
Rear speakers same question.
I'll point out that you cant hear below 20Hz unless your a whale and very few instruments go that low except organs and synthasizers.
The subsonic filter merely block the lower harmonics from eating up amp power.
Their is no universal setting. all systems are different, as are cars, interiors, ears, windows up or down, noise floor, etc.
A RTA helps with the basics but you will still have to tune by ear,
Good sound is difficult enough to achieve,
Great sound is trial and error and very time consuming.
Sorry no simple answer here. Find a good installer ,preferably with sound judging experience,
It wont be cheap, but if you have enough money invested in the system, Don't skimp. or all you'll have is bragging rights
Best of luck, Sumthin
