It takes more than just putting some drivers into a cabinet. Even if one has speaker design software loaded, it still does not provide what years of experience in speaker design does.
And I'll put up my Biased passive XOs against most active XOs, if not all.
Just recently I saw online a pair of custom speakers based on the '80s JBL 250Ti. But instead of a 4-way, the guy built a 5-way.
And that causes all kinds of problems. And then there was the obvious mistake, an overlook of the original design of how the tweeter was mounted on the sloping baffle. Without the vertical wood tweeter mount, his tweeters were firing above one's head, aimed towards the ceiling. I guess, his speaker design software did not mention that situation.
So he built what I would call a completely flawed design.
