  • Protection cap

    Quick question ...

    I am building a 4 way active system .. with one channel dedicated to a pair of B&G Neo3 tweeters. I want to protect them from any pops or crackles from the amp/crossover in the event of power outages or whatever.

    What would be an appropriate value cap to put on the tweeters? The active crossover point will be around 2K - 3K.

    Thanks

    Hi,

    in this album, you can enjoy my active setup. I have used a 20 uF on the tweeter.
    I have a switch, and can bypass the cap. No audible difference

    Just my 2 cents

      Use a cap sized as a 1st order HP filter with the knee frequency one octave down from the actual crossover frequency.

        I have always used this selection criteria, also.
