Bricolo, I am not sure it makes any difference at all, plus the notch filter kills the symmetry on the tweeter.

Tell me if I'm wrong, but there's no symmetry in a RLC filter
you can put them in any order, it still works the same
RLC=RCL=CLR=CRL=LRC=LCR

Frank has made comment of crossover components wired into in the active or neutral lines making a difference.

Then you should also do your wire runs, sorry interconnects, along the cardinal compass directions, make sure the grain runs the right direction in the monocrystalline oxygen-free silver wires, and of course, be absolutely sure the resistors in the amplifier all run clockwise...

Taking care with component and wire directions counts.

Now go to bed.

Errrr, sometime reasonably recently - I think the context was directional wires etc.

Maybe ask Frank.

Eric.
