Bass Blockers

so i dont think i have bass blockers cause my regular speakers are putting out really low sound, and one is now buzzing a lot so i dont want to hurt anymore, so i went on crutchfield and found these,
http://www.crutchfield.com/App/Produ...filter&tp=3216

but which do i need, what's the different hertz mean and which should i buy for mine?

thanks guys!
btw i have two amps and the four regular sized speakers and then two extra ones that are about 6-7 inch ovals, and then a 12" sub in the back with its own amp (one of the two)

hmmm, no, maybe they do have the blockers, i undid my sub and listened to each one and i think they might have them, i cant trace the wires without a big effort but is it possible that there is something in the amp that is doing it b/c i dont remember a blocker along the line from the amp to the speakers,

lastly i re-did my settings so now there is barely any bass, but i faded it mostly to the rear which is what the sub is on, so it sounds like almost all of the bass is coming from the sub now

ill go back out and try to trace the wires i guess, what else am i gonna do on a saturday :-P

your main speakers are safest when you cut out everything 120hz and lower

the sub should be at around 80 hz

My buddy did bass blockers once... they stayed in all of 10 minutes... they suck balls... we took em out because instead of blocking frequencies, it just made the whole speaker cut out every time teh bass got to the point the bass blocker worked.

That's a relief. I thought for a minute you had fish jumping into your jeep or something.

haha no, but im debating, just selling al the speakers and amps i have,and just getting a marine system form crutchfield, id be out probably $400, if i got a good price for all the stuff i have, then i wouldn't have to worry about rain so much, and i would get everything installed right and wouldnt have to deal with one of my speakers being all crackly now and randomly the others doing it too,but thats if i cant fix this cheaply and i get REALLYYY fed up!!

You should be able to adjust the crossover on your amp to cut out the frequencies you don't want going to your regular speakers. I would turn the gain down, and adjust on the frequency until you got it sounding better. You may have also blown a speaker, that might be the crackle.

i agree. a speaker trying to reproduce sounds it cant will usually just sound kinda crappy. popping is usually a blown speaker. i've only used bass blockers with good results on tweeters. otherwise, pony up the money and use crossovers.

ive been trying to find where the crackle comes from and its very slight now that ive fixed some stuff, and reset my preferences, but i cant pinpoint a speaker, ill do all that stuff once it stops raining so i can get to my amp under the seat, and more easily disconnect one all the speakers but one.
I dont wanna take the seat out and leave it out in the rain for a few hours while i play with the amp and speakers but ill try my amp crossover setting and such soon

what would they look like and what should they be set at or to which side should i slide/twist/whatever them haha

you'll want to low pass the subs, high pass the rest. amps are different, so you might have adjustable or it might just be a set level. the settings kind of depend on your setup. look up your speaker's specs as to what freqs they can handle, then try to cut out whatever is out of their range, b/c you're just wasting power trying to make sounds at those freqs. subs low passing at 80 Hz is pretty good starting point. it'll clear up the mud coming out of them (muddy sound, not physical mud )
