Thinking about building a 2-way speaker - Need Help with Crossover Design
I'm going to make this short and sweet. I'm thinking about making a 2-way pair of bookshelves with the Peerless HDS 830874 6.5" PPB midwoofer
is the spec sheet) and SEAS H1280-06 22TFF tweeter
. If they end up sounding better than my Monitor Audio RX1's, they may replace them and will be crossover to my PB-1000 subwoofer at 80Hz so extreme bass extension isn't necessary.
I have absolutely no idea how to design a crossover. I've never built a speaker before. I know they're composed of a bunch of resistors and capacitors but what determines what the crossover value is? I'm thinking a crossover somewhere between 2.5-3.0 KHz? But what should the circuit look like to create that crossover value? What is the relationship between capacitor and resistor values and the crossover value? I don't know anything. I'm hoping someone has a crossover schematic that I can simply copy. I'm assuming I can just use someones crossover schematic if it produces a crossover value in that range.
With regards to the properties of the cabinet, I guess I'll just use the Application Notes
for that Peerless driver.
