DIY: I want to build my own components. Questions.
Aftermarket components cost alot, so I figure why not try to build my own components from the bare drivers. Here are the drivers I am planning to use:
Dayton ND20FA tweeters
Audax 5.25 inch Aerogel (really good reviews on the Aerogel series)
The difficult part is designing the crossovers. I found these two sites which help do the calculations on the crossover:
I will probably do a 12dB/octave crossover, but I am still undecided on the crossover type and the frequency to cross it at (4000 to 5000 hz, but not sure exactly where).
The two drivers I am using are both 6 ohm, but what would be the total impedance of the system? Do I just go 1/((1/6)+(1/6))? That would yield 3 ohms, and not the 4 that is recommended from my amp's specs.
Does anyone have any tips? Feel free to post other advice you may have.
