    Hi, what's gonna be the cheapest/ easiest way to cut the lows from my main speakers. They are fed from the head unit, there is a sub fed from a pair of non fading rca's and a pair of rca'c (front) unused on the h/u. I dont want to go to the expense of running rca splitters from the h/u and a new 4 channel amp.

    Cheers.

    Just fit some capacitors in the positive speaker line on each speaker,go to a car stereo shop and ask them for one which cuts out low frequencies and they should have them,or if you want them really cheap find out which ones you need then go to and electronics store and buy them for pennies :D

    follow this link : http://www.the12volt.com/caraudio/crosscalc.asp

    you enter speaker impedence ie 4ohms, then the crossover point and it tells you which size capacitor you need. Remember you can put them in series/parallel to get different results.

    Then try Maplin.
