crossover parts


Hi Guys,

Where do you guys get the crossover parts from. I am looking to build a speaker soon and wanted to get cheap parts if possible for crossover, specially the expensive caps and inductors. I am on a really tight budget as I exceeded the costs in drivers. My friend will bring the drivers in dec end. If there is not much of a difference in costs or if india is more expensive for these, I might as well order from parts express/madisound itself. I can replace the cheap parts later with botiuqe stuff as and when budget allows.

thanx

crisscross got his inductors wound recently in Hyderabad from a local vendor, worth checking from him.

thanx george. is it a complicated process using a machine or it can be done by hand if you have an LCR meter. i will ping crisscross also for this. anyone in bangalore who does this.

what about the caps. i know u get caps at sp road, not sure how good/bad/suitable those are for crossovers.

Re: crossover parts

Check with crisscross. I know that it can be done with a proper winder etc, but there is some trial and error involved in making them, and also one has to source good copper wire to do it.I suspect it is much easier to order them if one needs only a couple.

Re: crossover parts

thanx guys for all the info. liked all the suggestions, the russian pio, erse etc are all good sources, but shipping ended up killing everything. eventually, I just ordered everything from parts express, with free shipping. Going by other routes, I probably would have saved 5 bucks, not worth the headache. The original BOM was also from PE, so atleast I know I am using what the designer used. Got to know some good resources though.

Please feel free to add more suggestions. I have a feeling I am going to need these for future projects, specially amps etc. Buying cheap parts for crossover has a distinct advantage of better utilizing money on drivers, and then later upgrading to better parts when budget allows. also takes care of upgraditis at a lesser cost.

Re: crossover parts

Looks good! BTW, what sub are you planning to pair it with and how are you going to power them? Good luck with the build!
