Default hivi b3n and Behringer CX2310

Hello,

this my first post, so be kind.

I am working on my first set of speakers, the hivi bs3 (using b3n) single drive system design from zaph audio.

He states in his excellent write up that if not using a ht receiver it is highly recommended to use an active subwoofer crossover.

I see on fleabay a behringer cx2310 active crossover. Would this fit my needs in seperating what goes to the hivi b3n and what goes to my subwoofer?

Would i need more than one stereo amp?

Any advice, would be much appreciated

Thanks

Yes that XO would work. It won't be the last word in transparency thou.

If you actually add a woofer(s), you would need ampifier(s) for that.

Hello,

thanks for the answer.

My subwoofer is powered, so then no need for another amp, right?

Do you have another suggestion for a xo that is a bit more asthetically pleasing? WAF factor=smaller
