Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

RE: To purchase an electronic sub crossover?

I have tried mating subs to stats with electronic crossovers to gain the inherent advantage of removing strain from the full range panels.

The problem for me: every electronic crossover I have tried (including the Bryston) imparted a haze or coloration that I could not live with even thought the flexibility of the active crossover had many advantages. The stats were just too revealing.

There are some pretty sophisticated crossovers available on the marketplace so I have not tried them all.

I found that a passive filter and subs worked best and am now trying something else-with some success- a pair of new RELs driving of the main amps speaker terminals with their in-built filter network. The REL solution sounds pretty good right now.

What electrostatics?- QUAD USA monitors, ESL 57s and a pair of Bevridge Model 3s ( these ones are spooky in what they do well).

Unfortunately, you are going to live with and try some options,I did , and spent a sum of money doing so that did not get me where I wanted to go. YMMV and all that.

Good luck.
