    As you may remember, I wanted to connect three amps from one RCA output (my portable minidisc player). I tried using Y-cables but that only blows fuses.

    Now I bidded on a Mobile Authority 5 channel crossover. Is this a good brand? Here are the specs:

    -- 5-Way Electronic Crossover Network
    -- DC to DC Converter power supply
    -- Subwoofer Input Switch on/off
    -- Stereo/Mono Selector Switch on sub output
    -- Low Pass Crossover Frequency: 50, 80, 100, 200 Hz
    -- Rear Low Pass Frequencies: 100, 250, 400, 500 Hz
    -- Rear High Pass Frequencies: 80, 100, 120, 180 Hz
    -- Front Band Pass Frequencies: flat or (500-1.6kHz)
    -- Front High Pass Frequencies: 1, 2.5, 3.5, 5 kHz
    -- Adjustable Output Levels (sub, rear, Front)
    -- Gold Plated RCA Input/Output connectors and power terminal screws
    -- Slope rate: 12db/octave
    -- LED Power on indicator
    -- Remote Turn on

    Can someone explain what do they mean by "Front Band Pass Frequencies"?

    Thanks

    I imagine front bandpass means that it will apply a low pass and high pass x-over to the same output. This would be used for something like a midrange speaker. And sorry, but the brand doesn't have a really great reputation. If the price sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

    MOBILE AUTHORITY IS IN THE SAME CLASS AS BOSS, THUMP, AND LEGASY. IT'S A CHEAPER NAME BRAND FOR A RESON.

    I have found that just because they are cheap doesn't mean it is junk. I am on a limited budget on my projects and run a cheap Power Acoustic amp, and 2 cheapo 10" subs, and they have been working great for 2 years now. No problems whatsoever, just make sure it is installed right. And for me I can't see spending loads of money on stereo equipment when I still need a Dana 60 for my truck /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    My brother has spent the cash for expensive stereo equipment and has had 6 subs , 3 amps, 3 stereo decks, and 2 6x9's stolen to my 0 items stolen. And I never thought his high dollars systems sounded that much better anyways.
