A crossover would give you control of the crossover frequency, with individual volume control and separate output for lows and highs.
Connect from your mixers MAIN left and right outputs to the left and right inputs of the crossover.
When using the CX2310 to separate the signal into low frequencies for 'subwoofer' amp(s) and speakers, and higher frequencies for 'full-range' amp(s) and speakers, you would set the CX2310 crossover in 2-way mode.
You will have separate outputs for lows and highs on the crossover. Connect the low outputs or the SUB output to your power amp that will power your subwoofer. Connect the high outputs to your amplifier that powers your mains.
On the front of the CX2310, you will notice two rows of the labeling of the knobs. If you are using the CX2310 in 3-way mode, use the top row of labels to indicate what the function of each knob does. If you are using the CX2310 in 2-way mode, use the second row of labels to indicate what the function of each knob does.
The same theory applies to the back panel. If you are using the CX2310 in 3-way mode, use the top row of labels to indicate what the function of each connection does. If you are using the CX2310 in 2-way mode, use the bottom row of labels to indicate what the function of each connection does.
Start with the input gain knobs at 0 (straight up). You'll want to check to see what the recommended crossover frequency is for the subs you're using. Ultimately you will need to listen before you can determine exactly where you want the crossover frequency to be. Typically for 18" subs, a crossover frequency somewhere in between 80 - 120 Hz would be used. Start with the subwoofer gain knob at 0 dB (straight up).
Then, you can dial in the high frequency level to match the level of the lows.
