    Please educate me on crossover slopes

    What?? This is hi-fi you are talking about

    Please educate me on crossover slopes

    Sometimes it can be beneficial to have different crossover frequencies; for example, with my setup, the bass units naturally start to roll off before 100 Hz, so setting both crossover points to 100 resulted in a dip in the combined response. With a bit of experimentation I found that 100 for the Alpairs and 300 for the bass units gave me the flattest combined curve in the crossover region.

    That is correct.

    No worries. As MartinC has said, the sub's output and the main's output will both be 6dB down at 60 Hz so they sum to 0dB, so the sub's output starts to roll off before 60 Hz.

    Alpair 7.3

    I'm using those drivers in a 2-way configuration, in a 13 litre compartment and an 8" bass driver in a separate compartment. I'm using an active DSP-based crossover (miniDSP ddrc-24) with a crossover frequency around 100 Hz. Works very well, although not much help in telling you what components to use. I believe you will need a capacitor in series to give the high pass characteristic you are looking for - plenty of sites out there that will tell you how to compute the value.

    Please educate me on crossover slopes

    The slopes are quoted as dB per octave, where an octave is a doubling or a halving of the frequency. So if you set the sub's high frequency as 60 Hz and the slope as 12dB/octave, then the signal to the sub will be -12dB at 120 Hz. If you set the active crossover to 60 Hz and 12 dB/octave, the signal to the main speakers will be -12dB at 30Hz. In both cases, the curve starts before the specified frequency, and (depending on the curve chosen), when you sum the two signals, the response should be flat across the crossover region
