I need to replace a 2-way crossover in an Infinity 333592 satellite speaker. These are nice under cabinet speakers, the woofer & tweeter are fine but the board is bad. I found some preassembled crossovers on Parts Express, but how do I determine if i need the 1600, 2500 or 3500Hz board? Does it make a significant difference?

It would best to fix the current crossover than pick a off the shelf crossover that wasn't optimized for your drivers.

Sadly, that's out of my skill set. That's why I was going for the replacement crossover, I can plug in or solder 6 connections.

It can make the difference not only between good sound and bad but a working tweeter or a blown tweeter. You need to get the correct crossover from Infinity.
