This may sound strange but I was wondering which company made the best looking crossover for a component set.

I know it's all about the sound but looks do matter to a point.

For me, it's a toss between the latest Diamond Audio HEX x/o, and the Alpine Type X x/o.
Diamond HEX:


The Alpine has billions of features, though and is bi-ampable.

Alpine Type X:

Oh, right there's the "T" series (3 way) Type X crossover, with even more features and is tri-ampable from what I recall.
Type X used in "T" and "M" series:

I've always liked the look of the older MB Quart crossovers, especially the Q series.

Icon, I paid $450 all in for my set of SPX-177A's.

For the 3 way set, the best the local shop could do was I think $800 per side, so $1600 plus tax and such. ...but still ...going broke would never sound so goood!

The brax graphic pro xovers are nice....... the alpine spz's xovers look similar but a bit more beefed up......

there are a few sets with similar looking passives........ the glass really looks classy..

The Alpine f17t 3 way set that I have retails for $1200. It was the F#1 set, and then last year they brought out the $5000 set. I have alot more money behind my speaker then their worth. So I would bother putting the f1 set in a vehicle (other then demo purposes) unless there was 40 grand plus into the install.

The Diamond's are sharp. I find the Alpines kinda blah. I like the simple, non-traditional look of the RF FNQ crossovers

The new PG crossovers that look like their amps are massive. I have a set of Quart Musicomp 3-way passives I probably won't be needing in the future if you are interested. Nice quality stuff in them.
