Funny how quiet it got when Chris posted this.

3 posts in a row, I'm turning into NorthSky. If I start quoting myself would someone please shoot me?

It got quiet because I was trying not to contribute to the back and forth bickering. I'm also not a crossover expect so I wasn't about to argue any hard facts on the two pictures. I do know that the more components that are on the board is typically because you're trying to filter more things out, so whether that's a good thing or a bad thing is up in the air.


Here's a pic of the DIYsoundgroups Volt series crossover, which is a lot close to the CX series of crossovers.





Your assumption that simply because the JTR's have more components so they must sound better is a little silly though Rob, how can you simply look at a crossover and say "well it must sound better". I think it would be great to see a coax surround speaker GTG like some have suggested though.

Very good question Joe, I have no idea how or why the creator endowed me with those powers but it is a heavy burden to bear.

I have no idea how or why the creator endowed me so generously either, but it is also a heavy burden. The wife never complains though.

I agree that looking at the two pictures and assuming one must objectively sound better based on more components is presumptuous. At the same time I think it would be presumptuous for anyone to assume Nothing can be objectively learned by looking at the two pictures.


*Edit*
Changed "silly" to "presumptuous"

The all new Noesis 228HT uses a much larger compression driver that is able to go down an octive lower for improved sound quality and better off axis response. Plus, more directivity from the larger horn and voicing that is more full sounding (relativitely more mid bass).
