Yeah, it's a Pass XVR1. It's a compromise since none of my amps have gain attenuators, and I'm trying to stay away from the additional ADC-DAC on the digital crossovers. It is what it is, and the DEQX is in a box in the closet.
It is usually pretty difficult to get a good transfer function from an off-the-shelf analog crossover. It just isn't as simple as setting two 1200hz LR24 crossovers and having it sum flat. Or are you planning to model your own active analog design and build it?
I'd go either DSP active or passive frankly.
Thanks for your concern, I'll muddle along somehow.
If you are using separate subs, IMO you should just go with a TD15M + Horn 2-way. Of course that is assuming you can handle the width of the TD15M. There is no advantage to the TD12M aside from size.
The original plan was for a 18" woofer, 12" midbass, 2" compression driver/horn, tweeter. Then subs to smooth that out. I'm not a fan of 2 ways. It's all been measured/modeled except the 12" was originally a 2206H. And I might do that yet, but I sort of had my heart set on the TD12M. Just haven't been able to get one to measure, or 2 to build. Totally my fault for not planning ahead, but I didn't change the plan to the TD12M until July. Just not enough time.
I can go 15"-2"CD-tweeter just as easily, I was just planning on two 9ft^3 cabs and smaller subs tucked away. Not a big deal.
