Have been lurking here for a while and am really impressed with both the knowledge level and the willingness to help. I joined as I have a few questions that I could not get answered through searching here or on the web.
I am adding a pair of Peavey SP118BX subs and have been reading a lot here on the necessity of a high pass filter to prevent excursion. I am not sure if it is just terminology, but I can't find any high pass filters as a stand alone unit; am I right in assuming when people here talk about a HPF they are refering to running a crossover with the response set to match the specs of the driver? Or are you suggesting you run both sides of a stereo crossover for the subs, raw signal into channel 1 and cut the top off at frequency "x" and then run that into channel 2 for the low roll-off at frequency "y" and out to the power amp?
If this has already been explained somewhere please point me to the thread, I did look for it but could only find a lot of references to HPF without a good explanation of the how.
Also, any good recommendations on amps that work well with these from people who are using them? My intended purpose for now is just addition to my bass rig, eventual use will be for PA as I continue to build a system and stop renting.
