Default Copper foil inductors.

Anyone tried these? How do they compare to normal air core inductors? I'm going to need an inductor for my mids in my three way system that'll only be bi-amped you see.

I tend more towards active crossovers, but a buddy of mine swears by them.

I've got an active crossover between the mid/high and the woofers, the passive will be between the mids and tweeters only.

Do you know of any good plans for active crossovers?

I beleive Nelson Pass has one in the works.

If you dont mind audio that glows, try Tubecad as JB did a long article on it just recently. Also try Steve Bench's site.

ESP has articles and tools to build Linkwitz-Riley filters for crossovers.
