I got some 3/4" tweeters that pop sometimes, so i figure id need some bass blockers (using factory deck)

anyone know what Kh/Khz of a bassblocker i should get? Where can I find them? I tried bestbuy, FS, and 2001 aud vid

Also, does anyone know how to make your own?

bass blockers rarely do anything except with small speakers 3 1/2" 4"
your tweeters should already have bass blockers (a capacitor)
what your probably hearing is your deck crapping out
so get an amp to drive them or turn it down

If the tweeters don't have a little capacitor on them then just buy a set from like www.partsexpress.com

I believe they are a part of the cdt upstage kit, the attenuator is used to adjust tweeter levels but it must be used in conjunction with a cdt xover with attenuator output, as the tweeter is xovered through the passive xover. Thus i dont think he has any caps inline already.

The source/radio shack may have them as well Mike.

</font>[/QUOTE]Hey pinhead, as your name clearly discribes you.... We are talking on the tweeter itself.. Not in the actual passive xover..

i can see mr batta that you actually have no clue what your talking about
go take a look at any high pass crossover
there is always a capacitor in it
and its inline weither its 6 12 18 24 36 db per octive crossover
its really interseting to sit back and see over time who actually knows something and the ones who don't
