Default electronic crossovers which to buy

I am about to build another full range speaker system with powered bass units.
I'm planning on using my newly made simple se triode to run the full range unit, and my moscode amplifier for the bass unit.
I've looked at all the electronic crossovers I can find, and it seems like the features I want are all on the automobile electronic crossovers.
Unfortuneately, it must have rca jacks, and this eliminates almost all of the non auto crossovers.
I could build a simple power supply for it,
but
are car crossovers good?

Try Rod Elliott's P09, here:
Linkwitz-Riley Electronic Crossover

That's what I use (except I don't use 24dB slopes).

Regards,

Andy

I don't see anywhere to buy the crossover. How much is it? Where do you pay for it?

Here is a two-way version of it, and I used OPA4134, much better than the TLO74's.

Cheers George

It has a article on it and the layout for the main board,and a BOM, I don't know if a kit is available for it ,
I built mine from scratch using that article,

pforeman- a gentleman that I had met, musician and DIY audiophile had done the same with a 12v p/s and auto crossovers. I thought it sounded good. So yes it's doable and it does work- but I'm also curious to see what the experts weigh in. Only "down" side I could think of is that Auto sources generally have a higher voltage in the RCA, not sure if that affects the distortion or SQ.

From Pforeman's first post I assumed he was looking for a kit or pre-made crossover. I got excited from the link in your post that there was a kit with the metal work already done. Thats is the hard part for me.
