It looks hard because your making no attempt to understand it.

To mix two channels to mono you need 3 resistors :
L+ via a resistor1 to mono+, R+ via a resistor2 to mono+ and
the third resistor between mono+ and the common ground.

For a low pass filter you put a capacitor in parallel with R3.

For a 22K input use 10K for R1 and R2, 20/22K for R3.
A 0.47uF capacitor will give you a near 100Hz 1st order.
1uF near 50Hz, 0.27uF near 200Hz, 0.1uF near 500Hz.

rgds, sreten.

Thanks again,

That makes more sense to me.
I went to my local electronics store to get some R's and C's but they asked me what voltage I needed. I couldn't reply so they couldn't help me out... What should it be?

I assume they were talking about voltage rating for the caps. What voltage would you expect to see on this connection? Very roughly, does not have to be exact; you can calculate with or without a Mac. My guess is a few volts at most. Film caps typically start from about 50V rating, so almost any voltage rating will do.

Specifying components, even at the most elementary level, often seems to be a topic omitted from university courses yet it is important for both operational and safety reasons.
