Can I have my xovers right next to magnets? (component syste
I am putting my door components in. I am going to have two of the crossovers in the front of the panel. But there is not room for all four. So two have to go somewhere else. I am planing on putting them in the back of the panel. But there is only one place they can fit and that’s right next to the speakers. I was wondering if the magnet was going to have any adverse effect on the crossovers. I know 12 dB. / octave passive crossovers contain inductor and inductors are effect my magnetic fields. I am just not sure if the inductor is close enough to the magnet for it to effect it. The inductor in the crossover is circled in the last picture.

I do not want to put the crossovers in the actual vehicle’s door because that would bean I would have to have lots of quick disconnects in between and they cause loss not to mention they are a pain to discontent.

The magnets on the speakers are 15 oz. And the tweeters are DIRECTLY underneath the crossovers in the pictures.

It probably won't efect it too much. You would probably experiance more change with air temp becouse the core of the coil changes than by an outside magnetic field.

I see crossovers right up on magnets all the time, without any ill effects. Nice install.. how's it look from the front?

Its looks good from the front. I am almost done. They were a bitch and a half to vinyl. :(

Should be fine. The main concern would be changing magnetic fields which would cause small electrical currents in the inductor. So, unless you're waving the crossover around in the field like a humming bird, it's not likely to do anything.

the only downside is if the crossovers use iron core inductors. but that shouldn't be too big of a deal overall.
