My two favorite speakers did not have typical crossovers FYI. They use filters and then digital DSP to EQ.

They are only filters for protection. Right now the speaker sounds better than anything I have owned. I will take the measurements.

I bought 500hz 12 dB slope HP, LP crossovers from speaker hardware.com. Not cheap but what I was looking for. Knowing how good these sound now I just need protection from failure and the woofer...

I can say my DIY JBL's are the best speaker I have owned to date! The midrange clarity is their strong point along with their big dynamic sound stage.

Jay1, thanks for the offer but I just purchased 3 crossovers already built. Yours would have been a real crossover but I am just protecting the drivers and let my digital DSP tame the tweets. If I...

I am getting filters built for these and I am going to use the cracked horns as surrounds too. They extend to about 14khz where the DR's extended to 16khz. I really dialed them in last night...

I do agree to get things as good as it gets before EQ. The DR-250's were meant to be EQ'd for a flat response. When a speaker uses crossovers to pad down the tweets it is using EQ, why is it...

I could do mono with that! 6.5 feet ceilings here. I want a simple filter crossover for now until I find the right amp with DSP or try a 10x10.

This has always worked with my DR's which were always the winner subjectively. They had a simple crossover as well. There is no way a speaker is flat in my room without EQ. The DR's have shown me...

It is simple, I run a 85 dBs sweep and the response is 10-12 dBs high over 500hz from the woofer and some minor dips which are never more than 2 dBs. I then tell REW to EQ using the nanoavr at 85...

BTW, I do want to run these passive so I could use my NanoAVR and eventually Dirac upgraded. If I have to run these active I have to get a 10x10 but I like the digital path I am using. Who wants to...

I was measuring last night and the best crossovers for bass management were 57hz on the MR-825's and 72-80hz(depending on speaker) for the sealed 2035's. This gives me the smoothest response to the...

I would say based on sound quality alone the 2035 is better than the 2225. However, I did not have the NanoAVR but they had amps with built in DSP. The combo I have right now is my best musical...
