Introducing the New model B-4 active two-way analog crossover with about 400 Million possible settings!  The B-4 is a tremendous value for high performance and flexibility with easy adjustment and is unique in several ways:

First, it uses only direct-coupled matched discrete complementary Jfets (the now unavailable Toshiba 2SK170 and 2SJ74) in unity-gain buffer circuits without feedback. These buffers allow accurate interface between a very wide range of impedances in the filter components. They are adjusted for zero DC offset and do not require coupling capacitors. The filter resistors are high quality 1% Vishay commercial metal film types, and the filter capacitors are Wima polypropylene film types.

Second, the B4 has a fantastic range and variety of filter values and characteristics. Each of the four filters offers 1, 2, 3 or 4 “poles” for each filter, corresponding to 6, 12, 18 or 24 dB/octave slopes. Each of these filter poles is independently adjustable within each filter, allowing wide customization of the character of the filter. Each pole is adjustable from 25 to 6275 Hz in 25 Hz increments, which is 255 settings per Pole, and the possible number of settings for the four poles of each filter is something like 400 million.  With a few simple switches, the B-4 can accommodate “Sallen Key” values or “Linkwitz-Riley” values.   All settings are available without a soldering iron or buying additional components.

The owner’s manual for the B-4 is posted on  More pictures and special offers are on  The B-4’s input impedance is 10K ohms, which will work well with solid state preamps and not with most tube preamps.  There was a "B-4" released years ago-- today we have an All-New B-4.

This ad is for a NEW First Watt B-4 with full three year transferable warranty and Satisfaction is Always Guaranteed from Reno Hi Fi!
