I will design an audiophile quality loudspeaker that will sound great with or without the DEQX, and can be used with one amplifier, bi-amplified, or tri-amplified, with passive or active crossovers. I note that you featured an Active Crossover design in the January 2003 issue. Ported: No ported (B&W has ported box which I dispensed in my design) Crossover: 3-way active crossover. Tweeter will be placed at the top of the box (more precisely half inside and half outside as shown in the figure). A passive crossover has the same job and it is designed to work just like a active crossover.The only big difference is they make your car audio system less efficient this is because it filters out audio signals that have already been amplified. However, the noise and distortion figures of the crossover would negate the advantages of the Class-A Stereo Amplifier. I believe the title says it all. MaxxEQ and MaxxBass can be used for designing efficient and programmable active crossovers for both amplifiers and powered speakers. I am planning on a multiple amp setup in my crew cab, most likely fed by a RF 3sixty.3. And, as the title will tell you, i am totally new to all this DIY speaker crossover lark. It might be worth noting that lme49990 will perform worse than ne5534/5532 in some situations (specifically, voltage followers with significant source resistance).
