Does anyone know whether a crossover fr the LX521 is possible with two 2x4 minidsp?

In the resources section of oplug forum I can only find solutions and configuration files for the more sophisticated minidsp platforms.

That is good too know and would make things easier for me...one now and one later would be perfect.

I dont own one but i think so . 2x4 has 4 outputs , 1 for each driver on a 4 way. you will need 2 for a pair of 4way speakers

One more question:

I'm wondering about using a minidsp 2x4 to BI-amp my 3 way tower.
That would be stereo inputs and 2 outputs for mid/tweeters and 2 output for woofers.

What do I need to make it work? Because I have to do some kind of crsoover in the mid/tw section I guess

Thank you

If I understand what you're asking there, in that case yes, you would need a passive crossover between the mid and tweeter, and use active with the miniDSP between woofer and mid/tweet.

So what I need is the same pasive crossover designed for mid/tw and no crossover for woofers, isn't that?

but in that case i'm doing something that doesn't improve anything because I can't modify the low-pass frecuency in the mid/tw section... or I am wrong?

Thanks again

I don't quite understand your last question, but I would say that hybrid crossovers are more complex than going either fully active or fully passive i.e. you have to understand both methods fully to make it work.

Well, thinking myself... maybe I found the answer. Lets see:

I think I should use 2 outputs (L+R) for woofers (L+R) and 2 outputs (L+R) for mids/Tweeters section (L+R)

The mid/tweeter section should have a crossover to send the high pass frecuency (2400Hz in my speakers) to the Tweeter and then I can control the high-pas/low-pass frec between the woofers and the mids+Tw from the minidsp.

Maybe that is the solution

What you're thinking about is a typical "hybrid" system.

The active crossover (miniDSP in this case) creates the woofer low-pass section and the mid/tweet high-pass section.
The passive crossover creates the midrange low-pass section and the tweeter high-pass section.

You could also incorporate necessary equalization of the entire range into the active crossover.

Cheers,

Dave.
