Precise Passive Crossover Networks Incorporating Loudspeaker Driver Parameters

Document Thumbnail

Design procedures are presented for loudspeaker crossover networks that, by interacting with the driver's parametrs, equalize its response into that of a second-order high-pass filter suitable for further equalization. After impedance correction by a further network, the equalizer driver is cascaded with a simple passive equalizer and thena conventional ladder filter to produce the required overall higher order response. An alternative method simplifies the second equalization process by a minor modification of the ladder filter. The input impedances presented by crossover filters are investigated. The procedures combine certainty of design with economy of components.
