    Depends on what speakers you are going with. After looking and reading up, I didn't get bass blockers, I just went with a amp that has a high pass crossover for the front speakers. I run the 4 speaker on high pass, and have a sub on it's own amp for all my bass needs.

    Are you powering them with a amp or off the headunit ??? If headunit, does your headunit have a high pass crossover ??

    With those at 2 Ohms you would run a 530µfd cap to block all freqs below 150Hz. That is the average crossover range for the off the shelf units.

    400µfd would get you to about 200Hz

    My Infinity Kappa 4X6 plate speakers are 2ohm speakers. Power them with the headunit for now, but look into a amp for them. They'll sound sooooooo much better and you can get a amp with built in crossover.
