Default Advice/Assistance wanted for Acoustat Model 6 crossover design

Hello to all !

I am a recent Acoustat Model 6 owner, after a long and varied history of speakers spanning a great many different models.

I'm really enjoying what the 6's have to offer, but wanted to integrate two subs into the system.

I would like to know if its possible, and if so, how to go about rolling off the bass in the Acoustat panels at 100Hz at 18db octave. I would like to do this passively, without using an active crossover, buffer or network of any sort. I dont want to try cap(s) on the amplifier inputs, as this will only give me a 3db slope(?)

I'm not as technical as most who post here, but can figure most things out, with a bit of help !

Thanks in advance.

Scott

Are they going to be powered by a separate amp?

You could look into the miniDSP and do it digitally.

Subs are both active Rel Stentors.

Yeah, if ur not getting enough bass from the model 6, something is askew there.

Perhaps you may wish to describe fully the set up, the system and maybe a jpeg of the room??

You should be awash in bass...
