One thing to keep in mind is DSP crossovers may be used because the drivers have flaws that can not be corrected with a passive XO......
If I missed a post.....feel free to re ask the question, Im not avoiding anything here at all.
And as far as driver flaws that cannot be corrected with a passive xover, but can be correct with a DSP processor, sure, I fully agree 100%.......it just pushes my point along further how useful a tool these management systems can be towards improving SQ. Nothing wrong with that at all.
Also, one point I did forget to mention. It was stated can a speaker be improved STILL without pulling the passive xover or tearing apart the speaker. THe answer to that is YES.
Many of these speakers come with double or triple binding posts allowing you bi amp or tri amp each individual driver seperately. So yes you can technically "fix" these types of speakers without pulling them apart since you can still tweak and fix time alignment,level match each individual driver more precisely and eq the individual drivers to near perfection in your room listening environment.
