Filter based off of what's chosen on the page....

Hi, I have a page with multiple tables, each being a top N list, and a slider that controls how many top N items on the page.  I also have a filter on the page that filters the same records but that filter is based off of the table where the data in the top N list is populated from.

My filter is incompatible with the tables on the page because where the grids on the page show top 10, top 100, etc.. whatever count the user chooses from the slider, the filter is based off the original table, so the filter wants to show more records than the data in the table that is based off of the slider.

My question is, instead of basing the filter off of the table only, how can I change it so that the filter is based off of what is being filtered by the user, as a result of the slider? It's useless to have a filter show everything in a table, where the top N list on the page shows only the top 10, 20, etc.
