Hello Andy,
In your recent posting about the 33kHz crystal filter, can you clarify what
the characteristic impedance is ...
It is very unusual to specify an impedance in terms of a frequency, so I
feel there must be some mistake.

Its was I ...........

1)  Take a handful of watch crystals, from the same batch  (buy 10 or 20
Farnel / Maplin ??)
2)  Connect  5 in series to form the top elements of a ladder filter; you
have 6 connection nodes, taking 1 as the input, 6 the output
3)  Connect shunt capacitors to ground as follows, from node 1  47pF,
2,3,4 and 5   82pF,  and node 6  47pF.   This gives a ladder filter with a
characteristic impedance of around 50kHz, a 3dB bandwidth in the region of
2.2Hz and 10 dB loss.  Centre frequency is 32765.5Hz - the series
resonance of
a 32768Hz device  cut for  || resonance.    The loss is high enough to
out significant ripples so I made no serious attempt to get a decent
shape - it was rounded - but with a lot of patience it could be improved
4) All attempts to use the crystals in thier parallel mode, with top
capacitors lead to very high losses that would have needed a
impedance of meg-ohms to get operational.

I didn't think much of the xtal filter idea idea and abandoned it for a
solution using the 56002EVM.
