    An electrical device that divides the audio spectrum of a particular source into smaller groups of frequencies, making it easier for down stream components to handle the load. The most common use of crossovers is in amplifier/speaker systems, which allows the separate components to function more efficiently. For instance, a mid-range speaker will function better if it does not have to deal with low frequency content, and visa versa.
