Regarding the shunt resistor in an active crossover, I got the idea from Lynn Olson I think. Or at least from his monster thread at diyaudio. It is only for compression drivers, since their impedance...

mtg90 covers it pretty well so I'll just give a couple thoughts. Try to use a software that uses a dual channel MLS measurement. This way you can measure actual relative phase and not have to reverse...

Kinda sorta related to this thread: I just read a comment over at maximumpc that WMP in Win10 will not play DVD's (mpeg-2 specifically). Anyone else heard this?

Are you sure? I see 2.4 for the J1800 but 2.0 for the J1900. The way I'm looking at it is this: IF all of these are equally capable for playback 1080p mkv rips of bluray on JRMC (standard) I'd like...

What benchmarks? The only ones I've seen are cpu benchmarks and the 1017U is considerably ahead of the J1900/1800. I don't know how the gpu compares though. Power isn't a concern.

How does Celeron 1017U fit into the low cost cpu/gpu environment? Also, for needs the same as the OP, is J1800 (2 core, higher clock) or J1900 (4 core, lower clock) the preferred chip?

I just sold a pair of 760's and Bigfoot for $650 to a local buyer. Biggest problem is they are so huge and heavy it probably won't be worth shipping, so you have to hope there is a local buyer, which...

Actually next time I do a PA-based build I will probably go with a 1.4"/1.5" CD from 18 Sound and crossed pretty low. Unless this BA750 can really go as low and sound as nice I'd like.
