Hi,

Just wanted confirmation on something. I was having a discussion with someone about crossovers, especially low-pass filters as we were discussing bass management. I told him that he should disable his subwoofer LPF to avoid interaction from his AVR LPF. His response was that the internal passive crossovers in the speakers would still, in effect, cascade if using an active crossover in the AVR.

I'm not sure how this could be. You guys are the experts, just thought I would get your feedback on this.

Actually just forget about. I said "if a speaker crossover would interact with an AVR crossover" and "julf" said a filter applied to another filter would be effected. Now while that was infinitely more useful than Arnold's babble it still did not answer my question directly.

I'm asking about a speakers passive crossover between the drive units, and the AVR crossover - so if I use an 80 Hz AVR crossover in a 2-way speaker, that has a woofer low-passed at 800 Hz, how the fuck are the filters going to combine or interact? Will the slopes interact and if so, how?

If you understood basic English you would have gathered what I had asked. I'm losing patience when people have fuck all answers to give me and instead question and analyse why I have asked questions that should have been answered. If you can't answer my questions then you have demonstrated your incompetence and I'll go somewhere else.

Sorry I can't read minds.
