Does anyone know anything about passive crossovers ( a crossover between the amp and the speaker)?

I blew a crossover the other day on a component set and really can't afford another set and the noone will sell me just the crossover. What I need to try and accomplish is to send the woofer part of my component system a range of frequencies as opposed to just setting filtering out frequencies below a certain level. Basically I want to filter out frequencies both below and above certain frequencies.

Any help would be great. Thanks

What makes you think that the passive crossover is blown? What kind of components are they? The reason I ask is b/c its rare too hear of a set of components burning up their own crossovers from normal listening. The best fix to this would be to invest in a quality active crossover or some type of graphic equalizer. If you invest in a good one, it will have every feature you can possibly want and then some. Even some of the newer head units can do what you are asking.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

They're eclipse components. I'm positive its the crossover because I hooked up the crossover from the other set and it worked fine. The "bad" crossover was shutting down my amp, hence the problem.

Thanks tho, I guess I'll look into a pre amp crossover

You don't want to go out and buy just some replacement crossover from Radio Shack. Their crossovers are not designed for your Eclipse comopnents. Using their crossovers will degraded your sound. One cheap easy fix is to purchase a set of Bass Blockers that plug inline with the speaker. They act as passive crossovers and you can select several different frequencies to adjust your sound.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>
