View Full Version : Crossovers help

10-10-2007, 07:38 AM

My components:

130A 16 ohms
375 with Hartsfield horn

I wish to buy a crossover that are suitable for these drivers. What model should I get? Anyone has any experience on which frequency that is best to crossover at?

I am thinking of choosing LX5 or 3160, however, both of these crossovers have 8 ohms output for lower frequency.

Thanks for all your help!

Have you considered an active crossover?

What do you have for UHF?

if active crossover, what should be considered?

I have Sequerra T9 and ESS Heil tweeter as UHF

If you want to run the Heil or the Sequerra ribbon as UHF, you definitely want active crossovers/separate amps. The efficiency of the 375 is MUCH HIGHER than the ribbon tweeters.

For multi-amping... the simple solution is a good, standard 3-way electronic crossover. For such, look at Rane, DBX, Ashly, or other such pro-audio products.

A more sophisticated solution, is something like the DBX DriveRack. I've used these before, and they can literally do ANYTHING that is needed to tune drivers in a system. Time delays, parametric and graphic EQs, the works. Takes a while to set up... but BOY, is it powerful (and sounds GREAT when configured correctly for the drivers and enclosures used)!
