Passive crossovers, explained by an engineer
It's not the first time we've dealt with crossovers, we've talked about the active ones earlier, but there's so much more to talk about: typology, resistors, capacitors, slope, you name it. So we decided to revisit crossovers at the HIGH END show in Munich, focusing on the passive ones, together with our Acoustician, Alex Newman.
In this episode
- Why do we use passive crossovers?
- How can you hear a passive crossover?
- What does it consist of?
- What is first order?
- Why do we prefer lower order crossovers?
