View Full Version : a simple question (I hope...)

How do you calculate the correct values for your crossovers when you use 6 Ohm impedance drivers? And how does it effect the rest of say a three-way system, if you use one 6 Ohm driver and the rest is 8 ohm?

Thanks in advance: Jakob

I usually use tables or graphs that I have for 4, 8, 16 ohms. For a 6 ohm driver the values are half way between those for 4 and 8.

There is no problem mixing and matching drivers with differing impedances, very few drivers have a very flat impedance curve anyway. If you want to get fancy you can add compensation circuits to flatten out the impedance, but since you are asking this question, I'd say keep it simple.
