Building Block Series crossovers are designed to be versatile
and made with with high quality components. Each frequency band
can be selected to best match the speakers application or use.
Impedance, frequency, bandwidth and slope can be chosen from a
large selection of preassembled crossovers for each speaker. Used
together they can make any combination. 2-way, 3-way or greater
system can be designed from this approach. Select a crossover
for each speaker in the woofer, bass mid, midrange and tweeter
group. All Building Block Crossovers allow for impedance
selection to match the ohm rating of your speakers, crossover
frequency to match your other speaker capability, and slope selection
to allow blend over between speakers in your system. All
models are available enclosed or open board style. Our
tech support can
help you match a single crossover or an entire crossover group
to your speakers.
Pass Crossovers will attenuate or block the high
frequencies from reaching the speaker that is connected
to it. This design is used for subwoofer
and woofer applications and allows
the bass notes or low frequency to play pass to speaker it is
connected to. Choose from multiple combinations of frequencies,
impedance and slopes.
Pass Crossovers will pass a spectrum of frequencies and
block the low frequency band and
high frequency band and only allowing
middle frequencies to play or pass. This design is primarily used
for mid-bass and midrange
speakers. They are designed to match with the woofer roll off
and protect the midrange or mid-bass speaker from harmful low
frequency, at the same time cut off the upper frequencies so that
the tweeter can correctly blend into the system. A band pass crossover
can also prevent the summing effect caused by multiple speakers
operating, or overlapping in the same frequency band.
Pass Crossovers will block low frequencies
from reaching a speaker and only allow the high or upper frequency
band to pass to the speaker. This design is mostly used for tweeters
and upper frequency midrange speakers.
We suggest using a stepper slope, 12db or 18 db for most tweeters
and a minimum crossover point that is double the resonant frequency
for the best power handling and sonic quality.
