Sure. Go to Behringers web site and download the application that controlls the DCX 2496 - Play with it an convince yourself that it is suitable for the job.

And the software to download

Remote Software Version 1.15

From S. Linkwitz's site, see:

http://www.linkwitzlab.com/orion_asp.htm

"I doubt that off-the-shelf DSP based crossovers have enough flexibility to duplicate the three outputs of the ORION ASP in magnitude, phase, distortion and noise level. It certainly is not just a matter of adjusting for similar magnitude response since the ASP is not minimum-phase"

It might be better to find out if someone has actually got the DCX2496 to work in this exact application before spending any money.

it's been done, not specifically with the behringer, but done with pro music crossovers. See here for a linkwitz "clone" :

Linkwitz is not right on this one. Download the control program as per above an set it up as described in the link above. If your are not able to do it it is because of human error not Behringer.

The control program for the Behringer DCX2496 gives quick and easy access to quite a range of parameters.
Settings can be saved as presets, and switched between on the fly for easy A/B comparisons.
Crossover types and slopes can be easily selected and this gives instant real time comparison.
There are better sounding crossovers than the Behringer and with similar features, but the Behringer works fine, especially for the price.

Sorry, but it is touch and go. The extra boost required because of the very low Q of the Peerless woofers comes close to maxing out the processing power of the Behringer.

This is if you do an exact duplicate of the Orion Xover which requires the boost to be maintained down to 10Hz or so.


Cheers

What if I add a Linkwitz tranform to the woofers. Will this be enough so that the DCX 2496 can further process it. TIA

Assuming you are doing it outside the crossover, possibly. Email me and I will send you more information.

hmm, so it's difficult with the behringer...

how about using other pro crossovers?
like the DBX on your site Steve?

can the one you have, and others in the range do all the processing required?
