Default audibility of full 360 degrees phase shift

Is a full 360 degrees phase shift audible?

I am making an active crossover, and it requires an allpass delay. The tweeter must be delayed 190 us according to measurements, and I could use two stages of the filters shown here http://www.linkwitzlab.com/filters.htm#4. However, if a 360 degree phase shift is inaudible, then I could instead delay the midrange by 60 us to make the waveform a full 180 degrees behind (250 us = 1/2 wavelength at crossover), and then invert the polarity to total 360 degrees shift. Putting a shorter delay circuit in the midrange would result in much less phase distortion due to the allpass delay filter.

What do you all think.

Thanks,
Lee

Do you have the option of moving your drivers to achieve delay?

Not in a box made by parts express and without any tools, unless I tilt it 30 degrees and listen to it all off axis.

Your 360 phase shift thing will work just fine... I have used similar tricks in high-end car stereos where woofers were in the rear tweets in front etc... it works.

And good job of thinking outside the cone...
