Annex Speaker Kit Development – Crossover Design and Speaker Voicing

Crossover Design For optimal performance and accuracy in a 2+ way speaker, most crossovers will require the following networks. Level matching The sensitivities of transducers in a multi-way speaker are typically different and their levels must be matched to achieve the acoustic design goals. As you can see from the transducer frequency response measurements, the…

Generic Passive Crossovers – Not Recommended

To achieve the textbook filtered curve you expect from generic off-the-shelf or textbook equation calculated passive crossovers, these generic implementations require a constant load impedance/resistance and assume your transducers exhibit a linear frequency response. That constant load is usually 4 or 8 ohms. A transducer’s impedance varies with frequency. We can compensate for the varying…
