    Active Crossover with DSP for dummies

    ...and if you do end up using different amps with different power outputs, choose the more powerful ones to drive the least efficient drivers (usually the bass drivers).

    Active Crossover with DSP for dummies

    Hi Andrew I don't think it is essential to have the same amplifiers for all drivers, for the simple reason that however you configure the system, you are going to be measuring the overall performance and then messing with the DSP to change the system response, so any difference in the character of the amps (which should be very small anyway with SS amps) can/will be ironed out in the settings you choose for the DSP. The only consideration is to use the same amps for each pair of drivers, otherwise the level matching can be a pain - i.e., use a matched pair of monoblocs (or a stereo amp) for the bass drivers and a (possibly different) matched pair (or stereo amp) for the tweeters.

    Petition for clean Brexit referendum

    Describing it as a clusterfuck conveys an impression of far better organization than I would give them credit for...

    Petition for clean Brexit referendum

    ...and a referendum on a topic of this magnitude should have been decided on a "supermajority" basis rather than a simple majority (e.g., the pass mark should have been 70%, not 50%).

    Indeed...that is no surprise. Too many people are wedded to the box swapping mentality - or maybe they just like having lots of shiny boxes with lights and knobs on them.

    Indeed - it has been clear for a long while that the Brexit Bonus was unlikely to be as interesting as the Brucie Bonus.

    I agree that there is plenty of scope to design a bad active speaker - no difference from passives there. However, if you took two identical pairs of good quality commercial, passive speakers, and converted one set to active, I'm pretty sure that the actives would out-perform the passives (all other things being equal - i.e., using the same amplifiers etc.) I don't agree that the amplification is that much of a problem, unless you are hooked on valve exotica, which I am not. There are plenty of options for solid state amps these days that are affordable and well up to the job. Yes, definitely an educational process!
