C1 = .1040 / ( Rh x f )
L1 = (.1009 x Rh ) / f
C2 = .1470 / ( Rh x f )
L2 = (.4159 x Rh ) / f
C3 = .2509 / ( RL x f )
L3 = (.2437 x RL ) / f
C4 = .0609 / ( RL x f )
L4 = (.1723 x RL ) / f
Calculate Your Crossover Here

 To use this form, enter the impedance values (at the crossover frequency) for your speakers, and then enter the frequency you want your filter to crossover at. Now, click the "Calculate Values" button, and your results will appear in the empty text boxes.

Enter Tweeter Impedance Ohms
Enter Woofer Impedance Ohms
Enter Desired Crossover Frequency  Hertz
