Slope

Hi,

How do you figure out what slope to set in your xover setting?
6, 12, 18 or 24 dB/oct?

thanks
J

you listen to the driver (speaker)

play with all the settings and see what you like best, personally I like my lower frequency drivers (sub/midbass) to have sharp slopes (24db/ or higher) and the tweets to be high passed at 6db/...etc

How does changing the slope alter the sound?

Know the frequency parameters of the driver... do not exceed them, that is what slopes do to protect you from yourself.

Slopes make the HF, mid, mid-bass, sub drivers integrate well

Slopes make a huge sonic contribution, not that they alter the sound but they maximize the capabilities of your selected drivers

How would you set up the xover on this set up?

Front Speaker Specs: 50hz - 30khz (pair of 4" & pair of 5.25")

Rear Speaker Specs: 50hz - 30khz (pair 4 x 6)

Sub : 50hz - 200hz (single 8 ")

the front and rear channel have an active HPF (in head unit)
the sub channel has an active LPF (in head unit)

from this, how do i determine at which frequency to cut off the HPF and the LPF. and also how do i determine what slope?

thanks for any help its really appeciated.
