Sometimes the crossovers built into car audio amplifiers don't offer the flexibility needed to properly tune and complete an installation. The cex solves this problem.

The cex can be used in a variety of configurations from a simple 2-way system to a complex 3-way with full bandpass capability. The cex can also be used in a traditional front highpass, rear highpass and lowpass subwoofer system.

The input adjust of the cex is extremely flexible. If your source unit only has one pair of RCA outputs select the combine switch to on and the Sub Input switch to Int and all pairs of outputs will have signal. If your unit has front and rear RCA outputs select the combine switch to off and the Sub Input switch to Int. For source units with front, rear and subwoofer RCA outputs select combine off and Sub Input to Ext.

The included remote subwoofer level control allows you to adjust the subwoofer output to your specific taste from the front of the vehicle. This is convenient for those who like to make adjustment on the go.

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.

30 - 500 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.

30 - 500 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.
Yes
Line Driver
A line driver is a small amplifier used to support the strength of the audio signal coming from the source unit.
Yes
Signal Boost/Cut
The available signal boost or cut for each of the frequency bands.
12 dB
Max Output Level
The maximum level (in volts) of signal output. A higher level will increase the clarity and boost your signal.
7.5 volts
THD (Total Harmonic Distortion)
The amount of change in harmonic content of the signal as it is amplified. A lower figure indicates less change and a more accurate amp. THD below 0.10% is inaudible.
0.01%
Signal-to-Noise Ratio
This spec compares the strength of the signal to the level of background noise. A higher value indicates less background noise.
100 dB
Width
The width of the item from left to right (side-to-side) measured in inches.
8-3/8"
Height
The height of the item, measured from top to bottom, in inches.
1-1/8"
Depth
The front-to-rear depth of the item, in inches. If the item is angled or slanted, this value is the bottom measurement.
6-1/2"

Cache CEX Crossover

May 18, 2011

The CEX crossover by Cache is a unique and very well designed crossover. It has quite a few features which allow nearly any system to perform its best. The hi 8V output ensures noise from signal transmission between the HU, the crossover, and finally the amplifiers. The CEX has a beautiful anodized finish without all of the flash of lesser crossovers. Gain and crossover points are accurate and positioned where they should be. Though the name may not be familiar to most, the performance is second to none! We bought this to compliment our Cache CBR bass restoration processor and it fits in perfectly. Installation was a breeze, and the bright blue LED, which shows the unit is working, was a nice touch.

Cache Cex

March 13, 2012

Fast shipment, I am very impressed for the money and the build. It has good sound. I am able to control the frequencies better than from my digital headunit. It cleaned up my competetion system a little more with better control of the direction of the frequencies. I also ordered their bass reconstruction unit too. Will give heads up on that also.
