  • Using Infinity Kappa's w/out Proprietary Crossovers?

    I just bought a set of secondhand Infinity Kappa 4" speakers, but they didn't come with their crossovers. I have them currently hooked up in parallel directly to my head unit, and they sound OK, but as soon as I touch the bass adjustment and raise it, they begin to pop and crack at any moderate volume. Is there something I'm maybe doing wrong...or are those crossovers absolutely essential?

    they're not essential but i'm sure they phased out some of the low frequencies that infinity speakers dont like playing. You'll never get adequate bass from a pair of infinity speakers, but they do mids and highs superbly. Senior Tech Blogger (Want a product reviewed? Contact me.)

      you will definatly need some sort of crossover--sometimes headunits have them, you could pick up some external units, or can make your own with capacitors using the correct size.
