@jamas To calculate the amount of delay to enter you really are going to have to guess without any frequency response measurement equipment. I would take the back of the woofer cone to the tweeter. The tweeter will be ahead of the woofer by that distance. You have to be aware that without proper measurement equipment you will be making compromises…Read More
@jamas Are you using the factory-supplied measurements or just generic responses in xsim. If you want the best response you will need to use at least the supplied responses. Also, keep in mind baffle-step when making your calculations. Otherwise, you’ll have a very treble-heavy speaker. you should also attempt to guess the time delay at which the…Read More
@jamas How are you measuring the drivers? What mic are you using? Do you have them mounted in the cabinet? What software are you using?
Basically looking at the two drivers’ specs and supplied responses, you’ll want to cross the tweeter at around 2000-2500hz using a second-order filter. The tweeter will need an L-pad resistor network to control…Read More

Thing is, the 5″ will start beaming at about 2700 Hz, and most tweeters have a hard time hitting that for a crossover point. Enter the Peerless by Tymphany XT25TG30-04 1″ Dual Ring Radiator Tweeter going for $28.47. FS is 436 Hz, so a crossover at 900-1000 Hz is quite comfortable for both.
@elliottdesigns well that wouldn’t really help would it because measuring pretty much anywhere is limited by the distance to the ground because that’s generally the first reflection. Unless you’re talking ground plane, but I don’t think that’s accurate at the frequencies the crossover is at, right?
Plus I don’t think you can truly ever get fa…Read More
