The main parts of the crossover are:
coils - our calculation
capacitors - our
resistors and a PCB where the components are mounted and wired up.
The crossover should be calculated mathematically correct using the complex
calculus something you should spare yourself.
Therefore, we are providing a few tools for you:
Please bear in mind that an optimum loudspeaker cannot be calculated with
these tools alone, since the characteristics of the drivers (frequency rise...)
still have to be considered.
We have collected more than 250 design suggestions from all over the world
(we have more in our archives) to ensure the best possible sound solution
for your specific needs.
The three different types of drivers according to frequency capabilities are
tweeters, midrange and bass
drivers. There are several different driver designs per type. Quite a
few exotic types have come up over the years and disappeared again. The classics
As long as a good loudspeaker cable is being used the influence on sound quality
is - at least theoretically - rather slim.
The quality of the cable affects low signal paths much more.
For low signal paths running over longer distances a symmetrically shielded
cable is recommended.
