Crossover Calibrator and Gain Matching

Most modern car audio amplifiers have a built in crossover on the side. Usually, it will start around 35Hz and can go up to as high as 20,000Hz. The purpose of this tool is to enable the installer to set the crossover frequency of an electronic crossover to the desired frequency, accurately and quickly. Enter "Competition Mode" and easily match gains on any 4-channel amplifier or even multiple bass amplifiers. This is very important when using subwoofers that share a common chamber, especially if you have two or more amplifiers on a dual voice coil driver.

SMD has chosen to use a 9V battery as the power source for a few reasons. They are readily available and they isolate the CC-1 from the vehicle’s electrical system for power, guaranteeing it will only measure what it is supposed to measure; the audio signal, not noise in the charging system. The supplied RCA connection is used to make it easy to measure the output of a headunit directly, if you choose to do so, and should the harness become damaged it is easily replaceable or repairable in the field.

General Features:

  • Crossover Calibrator
  • The Crossover Calibrator's circuitry is digital microprocessor controlled
  • Crossover -3dB point accuracy +/- 0.25dB
  • Low Battery LED trigger battery voltage < 6.5Vdc
  • Auto-shut off timer 8 - 10 minutes after ON button is pressed
  • Also matches the gain settings on amp(s)
  • To accurately tune distortion out of your system check out the SMD DD-1 Distortion Detector (for systems below 18 volts) and the SMD DD-1 HV(High Voltage) Distortion Detector for systems running 18 volts or higher
  • Authorized Internet Dealer
  • 1-year Manufacturer's Warranty

  1. The Crossover Calibrator (CC-1)
  2. Protective silicon rubber boot

Great product but too expensive

May 11, 2014

I owned both the DD-1 and the SMD for a while and i really love them. simple, precise and easy to use. My problem is with the price. I think they are too expensive for a one dimensional tool that i don't use often. That's why i sold them and bought a scope for $400. It takes some learning to use, but it does the job of both the DD1 and SMD and much much more. I use my scope every week on my car and on my house.

Great tool with an issue

February 10, 2014

I purchased the CC-1 to dial in the crossover of my Kicker "Front Row" processor/crossover. When the tool arrived I connected it to the FR's outputs but was unable to get the CC-1's "Signal" LED to light up. I even tried it with my home stereo pre-amp (an ADCOM GTP-500 II) as well as my CD player. I figured I got a bum CC-1 and sent it back to Sonic and ordered another. When it arrived it had the same issue. I then went to the SMD forum for help. I was told to try it on the outputs of my amplifiers. The CC-1's manual states that it can be used with RCA level AND speaker level signals. Evidently that is NOT the case. I connected it to the Front Row's outputs because it is much easier for me to access it than it is to access my amplifiers. I ended up having to remove the rear seat of my truck in order to connect the CC-1 to my amps. This finally allowed me to dial in the X-over. I never did get an answer on the forum as to why I wasn't able to use RCA level signals. Once I did all this I was finally able to accurately dial in my X-over points and along with the use of the SMD DD-1 my stereo has never sounded better. This line level vs. speaker level issue prevented me from giving the CC-1 a 5 star Overall and Ease of Use rating. Value got 3 stars because IMO the price is a bit steep. Durability only gets 3 stars because I've only had the CC-1 for a short time and have no idea how it will hold up over time. (Note to Sonic: Please do away with the Durability rating. There is no way of knowing how rugged an item might be until I've owned it for some time. If I wait a year or so to give a Durability rating the item under review may not even be in production anymore.)

Won't work on line level signal

January 29, 2014

The CC-1 is an excellent product. Too bad it doesn't work as advertised. I'm using a Kicker "Front Row" processor/crossover in my setup with the amplifier x-overs turned OFF. Accessing the x-over is much easier in my installation than it is to access the amps so I connected the CC-1 to the line level outputs on the FR and no matter what I did I could not get the CC-1 to detect a signal. I even tried connecting it to the outputs of my home stereo pre-amp (ADCOM GTP-500 II) with my CD player as the signal source. Same result. The CC-1 would not detect a signal. I sent the CC-1 back and got a replacement. I hooked it up and got the same results. Next I went to the SMD forum to post my problem. I was told to connect the CC-1 to the amplifier outputs to set the FR's x-over. Doing so allowed me to dial in my x-over points. No one ever explained to me why the CC-1 wouldn't work with a line level signal. The manual even states that it can be used with the outputs of a x-over but evidently that's not the case. I only gave "Durability" 3 stars since the CC-1 is brand new and I have no way of knowing how rugged it may or may not be. The price seems a bit high for what it is so I only gave it a 3 star Value rating. I do a lot of installs for friends and family so this is a great tool to have. Probably not very economical for the average person that only does their own personal car stereo setup. The Overall and Ease of Use ratings were each deducted one star for the line level issue. I gave Features 5 stars since the CC-1 not only allows you to accurately set your x-over it also lets you balance the gains when matching the levels of identical amplifiers. Sure, it's just a 2 trick pony but those tricks are very useful ones. All that being said I would recommend this product if you prefer doing your own installations and you want to do them accurately.

Another Great Tuning Device

August 29, 2013

This is another must have tuning device by SMD. Set the crossovers on both my Mono block and 4ch within 5 minutes. It's nice to know my crossovers are exactly where I want them to be.

A car audio must have...

The cc-1 is super easy to use. It makes tuning an amp to the correct and/or desired Hz settings a breeze. This is a must buy for any car stereo installer or simply anyone who enjoys it. It is a very accurate and affordable tool compared to others.
