A two-way loudspeaker-crossover system was modeled and computer simulated to examine crossover behavior in imperfect systems. Even-order all-pass crossovers were found to maintain the most uniform amplitude response in the face of off-axis listening, design compromises in system geometry, and differences between the woofer and tweeter drivers. The methods of sensitivity analysis were used to show that these experimental findings are predictable from the model.
