Default Headunits with 3 way or better crossover

I know about the Eclipse CD8455 and the CD7000. What other headunits have 3 way or better crossovers built in?

I wish someone would tell me how to just Build one outta scratch and use it in my car. Sounds like it could be complicated though.

take note that there's a difference in constuction of a passive and active eq. a passive eq is rather easy to build, however it will be fixed design unless you modify the schematics. while it's definitely possible to Build your own active x-over, the difficulty is much higher. however, you will still be limited to number adjustments of a diy active x-over over one found in a hu/external unit.

btw, for those interested in building an active x-over, here's a nice read:

well, after talking to a few people with experience with my current headunit, and the Pioneer, they all recommended the Pioneer and raved about it, so I guess on Friday, I'll be ordering one.

I've made a handful of active crossovers for projects. fixed designs though.

to make the filters adjustable requires ganged potentiometers for most applications.

to put such a filter into a Car application requires either AC-coupling, or a DC-DC power supply.

the split supply is the hard part. i can provide help, if desired.

edit -- the commerical unit would probably be better then the hommade one.
