crossover?

  1. DIY Speakers
    I just scored some older paradigm monitor 9's. After messing around with them I have figured out the have a bad high pass crossover. There is almost no highs when hooked up threw the crossover, so I took the crossover out of the equation and the tweets work fine, they are just too loud. So I am...
  2. Home Audio Subwoofers
    Hey all, sorry if this is a silly question, but doing a little research on a klipsch sub10 I found this on amazon, "The subwoofer's built-in, steep-slope (24dB/octave) low-pass crossover." Does this mean that the speaker connections (high level) do not have a cross over? I only ask as Ill be...

    What does it mean when you have a huge dip in frequency near your crossover?

    I'm planning a diy open baffle speaker system with fullrange drivers on top and "helper woofers" (some of the most efficient 15"ers I can find) on the bottom. I'll be bi-amping the system, most likely with low powered tube amps, but maybe a chip amp on the woofers if necessary (50W). So, I'll...

    I was talking to fellow member the other day and he was telling me about a sub crossover with a subsonic filter built in. He did not recall the name of it. Anyone have any ideas or recomendations?

    I picked up some speakers cheap. The kid that had them blew them up. I mainly want the cabinets, but may think about replacing the damaged parts. the tweeters are done, for sure. Right now I am wondering how to test the tweeter section of the passive cross over with a volt meter.
  9. DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I was curious about the LF roll-off of my commercial sub so I close mic measured the driver. I was very surprised to see a sudden drop of 8db in the region where the crossover engages. I can't see this being anything but the crossover. Opinions?
  10. System Setup and Connection
    I have had to replace four amplifiers in my subwoofer because of audible distortion at the area around speech. Changing the crossover would make the distortion from the subwoofers change slightly but I never measured or got an idea what that did. Since changing out the amps the audible...
  11. REW Forum
    I have worked with REW for a few weeks now and found it to be a nifty tool for showing the full band response of each speaker - sub, mains, surrounds, whatever - which can help with placement. I have not figured out how people come up with nice graphs showing the rolloff of the AVR x-over...
