So what are you using then?

Hi thetube0a3,
Your original question might have been lost here. 60 mV DC offset will not hurt your tweeter. If you are really upset about this, then stick some film caps in as others have mentioned. Make sure your roll off is not contributing to your crossover roll off. I think this is the point that Ken was making.

The positional offset caused by 60 mV is not really anything you need to worry about either. There are worse problems than that for sure in every room / system. You are achieving full damping now, avoid using a capacitor between your amp and the tweeter to retain this benefit.

Just one guy's opinion. Worry about the stuff that matters.

Hi thetube0a3,
Well, you know what?

The other posting members gave some great advise on how to handle situations should they be an issue. The concepts presented are worth your consideration to help you understand amplifier circuits.
