Default Active crossovers from eBay?

Anyone had experience with these active crossovers? To the untrained eye they look similar to some of the builds on this forum.

High Performance Line-level Active 2-way Crossover Filter OPA2134 DIY KIT | eBay

Any thoughts appreciated - thanks

Would be nice if they provided a little more information - like is this an LR4 two-way for instance? Also 'High Performance' seems a bit rich when this is just a standard opamp inplementation with no attention to power supply cleanliness.

Later... I looked at the link to the PCB - too much hype for my taste, for example 'performance a vast improvement over nearly all passive crossovers'. They're using too many opamps to implement a 12dB/8ve XO, this can be done with one dual opamp (since ite PCB is mono).

Not tried this product myself, but it looks good overall. Easier than perfboarding from scratch! I will bookmark it for myself, thanks...

His store lists both "12dB crossovers" and "Linkwitz-riley crossover" categories separately. Make sure you know which one you want. I would prefer LR12 for flat sum.

I'd rather use LM833 than his proposed 5532 or 2134, but I'd prefer Signetics 5532 over any 2134, but beware counterfeits.

Not seeing any trims or pots to adjust levels and crossover points.
A fairly basic requirement IMO.

It's not sold as an adjustable feast, you determine co by resistor selection.

Maybe "maybe" a stepped potentiometer system could be fudged, but I'm only using this for my vinyl. I will have determined my ideal co with some mini dsp kit and a couple of amps.
