Low pass filter 10mH & 100uF what the freq cutoff

If I put 10mH 15AWG on + line of speaker and put 100uF capacitor between + and - lines

How much the frequency cutoff I will get

I plan to use in my 10" subwoofer to have frequency cut off about 250 Hz below

2nd order is just fine.

Can anyone provide the calculator of L & C for low pass filter?

Thank you.

f = 1 / (2Pi SQRT(LC))

f = 1 / (2Pi SQRT(0.010H x 0.000100F)) = 159 Hz

Here's a calculator. http://sim.okawa-denshi.jp/en/RLClowkeisan.htm

Or you can quickly model it with XSim (see my signature). The actual curve will depend on the impedance of the woofer.

I try to calculate my Seas P25REX crossover but got wrong result.

Anyone help me

Either turn down the voltage of the 'power amp', or use the scale menu on the response plot so you can see up there. To be completely accurate, you would need a zma file of the driver's impedance and a frd file of its frequency response. As default, XSim assumes a driver's impedance is pure 8 ohms resistive, and its response is flat with 70dBspl at 1V input. That will get you reasonably close on the effect of the crossover, assuming your driver is 8 ohms. If it is 4 ohms, just put another 8 ohm resistor across it in the model (but not in the actual crossover!) __________________ [W9MJE] Horn spreadsheet SynergyCalc/; SmallSyns SmallSyns; Crossover design Xsim; Depot diffusor super-easy diffusors

My woofer is 93dbl

I have download FRD file of 8" of SEAS. Mine is 10" SEAS.

Can you help me modify the graph?

I attached as ZIP file

My amp is 65 watts/Ch.

 21st June 2016, 10:30 AM #9 diyAudio Member     Join Date: Feb 2012 Location: Croatia You have entered in mod sensitivity the 93dB value which raised the overall spl to a level that you can't normally see without moving the vertical center of the SPL graph. Set it to 0 dB. Make a simulation based on manufacturer's box volume of 28 litres and its sensitivity plot at 0 deg which already has baffle step factored in. Trace the impedance plot of the same box. __________________ Mankind is created for eternity.
