Besides the fact that your choices and opinions differ from mines (but I dont call yours "poor"), just keep in mind that less than 96khz limits the resolution of the XO and EQ filters you are using.

Microsecond level timing of signals is possible at any sample rate.

John,
This is a bit off subject but I tried to PM you and no go. I am seriously considering Soundeasy (and other Bodzio software) for my Measurement/Design Package. I would like to know what your take is on this. If you want to discuss this else ware feel free to PM me.

It's a good package but the learning curve is a little steep. The guide I wrote walks you through the basic design sequence. Se is nice because it's all in one. Pretty extensive measurement capability (more than I ever use). Good simulation flexibility, and the ability to digitally emulate any crossover you can design on the CAD screen, up to a stereo 4 way.

"192 for digital delay, for time aligning/phase aligning drivers is somewhat necessary. The minimum you can delay by is one sample period and 96 and 48 don't quite give you the precision required."

Hmm, so at 48kHz, there's a sample every 0.020833ms, right? If I'm doing this right, the maximum alignment error at 1kHz is 7.5 phase shift, and so 75 at 10kHz. I guess it's true.

I suck at math, but on the thread i linked in some subsequent posts someone else did. For under 6k XO point 96k is acceptable. Few people use supertweeters or FR + tweeter it seems

Single sample adjustment is not limit; only convenient, but as pointed out in 48kHz sample rate case, single sample is 7.5 degrees at 1kHz; to delay by smaller value re-sampling to higher rate is used, i.e. 480000, shifting one sample becomes 0.75 degrees. This is then sampled back to 48kHz, and all information is shifted in time frame by 2.1 microseconds.

This is failing of most speaker management DSP boxes. Steering potential lobes with finesse isn't possible.

When building/designing filter kernels, delay and EQ are worked right in for each channel.

This makes it easy to demonstrate nice deep reverse null notch with a driver polarity reversal:

The above alignment was achieved without manually fussing with a delay or phase knob.

Andrew

As I posted previously, I presented the Note II RS at DIY New England on Dec 1. There has been some discussion about the perfromance over at the PE board. Here is a link to some comments made by an Orion owner.
