Crossover Specifications

Built-in Crossover

A crossover is a type of filtering system that permits only certain frequencies to play. A Low-Pass (LP) crossover allows only frequencies below its setting to get through which is good in the case of some subwoofers. A High-Pass(HP) filter allows frequencies above its setting to pass through, this is normally used on speakers.

When a crossover is set to FULL it means no filtering is added and the full frequency spectrum is allowed through the amplifier. Filtering is important because feeding a speaker frequencies it cannot reproduce effectively creates distortion.

Low-pass (LP)
High-pass (HP)
High-Pass Crossover Frequency
The high-pass crossover frequency can be a fixed crossover point or a variable crossover range. A variable high-pass crossover allows you to select a specific crossover point which allows frequencies above the set crossover point to pass, while making frequencies below the set point gently or harshly roll-off, depending on the steepness of the slope.

The steepness of the roll-off slope is measured in dB/octave and refers to the rate of attenuation (lowering of volume) outside their pass bands.

32 - 250 Hz
Low-Pass Crossover Frequency
The low-pass crossover frequency is typically used for subwoofers. It can be a fixed crossover point or a variable crossover range. A variable low-pass crossover allows you to select a specific crossover point which allows frequencies below the set crossover point to pass, while making frequencies above the set point gently or harshly roll-off, depending on the steepness of the slope.

The steepness of the roll-off slope is measured in dB/octave and refers to the rate of attenuation (lowering of volume) outside their pass bands.

40 - 400 Hz
Built-in Bass Reconstruction
Bass reconstructors, or bass enhancers, improve low frequency reproduction in a car audio system with at least one subwoofer. These bass expander products will help your subs produce accurate bass thumps.

Accurate frequencies, great sound with my Kicker L7 and MTX amp. Would buy it again if the time came. A must for any system. Great with midrange frequency as well. Definitely recommended.

Excellent -- Best in price range

July 8, 2011

This is an excellent crossover for the price and is the only one I've found that had the frequency and slope options I needed. With a 24/db lowpass of 250hz down to 32hz and bass boost 0 to +12db down to 25hz, you will not find another x-over with this kind of flexibility near this price range. I'm using this x-over for my sub channel only so I can't comment on the front/rear output. The EC20B combined with my amplifiers lowpass and subsonic filter allows me to get the exact slope needed for great sound quality in almost any application. Crossovers 2x and even 3x the price often do not have the frequency range or offer as steep of a slope. I've used the EC20B with four 15's in a SPL setup and again in a SQ setup with two Alpine SWR1024d. Both times this xover allowed me to get the response I needed. I was skeptical at first about the brand/price but the EC20B is now a key component in my installation.
