Default Help me build a semi-active crossover

I've been searching for a few hours, and I can't find anything simple enough for what I need.
I want to make something very similar to these fmod crossovers

The only designs I can find for active type crossovers include opamps and that seems much too complicated.

Essentially I want to build a passive low pass crossover for a line out I guess. But since I donít know the speakers resistance I canít calculate things like inductors etc.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

You need to know the input impedance of the following stage (probably an amp in your case). Apply the same equations using this resistance.

You always find it yourself after a post right?


Thatís got just what I was looking for.

Basically the same thing that fmod does.
