The ASP-X2 is a 2-way electronic crossover which, like the ASP-X4 is designed to give you the very best in sound quality and reliability. This is not a crossover designed for people who "have" to buy a crossover to get their system working. This is a crossover designed for people who aren't satisfied when a system just works. They want a system that takes them to the all the way to the concert. A system that sounds like live music.
- Extremely versatile for 2-way high/low, 2-way high/band pass, high pass front plus rear fill
- Selectable band pass output 2 (rear)
- Dual inputs allow fading
- Selectable ground reference for noise elimination
- 9.5 Volt RMS line driver
- Remote bass control
To begin, the very same high-end audio grade Elna Silmic ll capacitors and OP275 op-amps used in the ASP-4X are used in the ASP-2X (as in the other Zapco competition grade processors). Another important factor in the sound quality is the quality of the control pots. They need to be clean, precise, and must not add distortion. Zapco went out the maker of the finest pots around and had our own custom high-precision pots built for our competition-grade processors.
With two high-pass filters and a low-pass filter, the 2X is a very unusual 2-way crossover. Like most 2-way crossovers the ASP-2X can be used to separate the bass signal from the mid/highs signal. But the addition of a X10 switch on each filter allows the high pass to range up to 4,500 Hz, so the ASP-2X can be used with an active tweeter. On the other end, the X10 switches on the second output allow the low-pass bass filter and the sub-sonic filter to become a higher frequency band pass. So the ASP-2X can give you an active tweeter and a band passed mid-range. And with the dual input system, you can fade between the two outputs. If you set the band pass at its widest you can have a high-pass front with rear fill and fade.
