Default Ringing midrange

How to tweek a crossover to suppress ringing tones in the 400 to 800 HZ. My speaker is a 3 way 2nd order xover at 250 and 2500 Hz. components are SS 2905/9500 Tweeter, Vifa PL 14 Mid and SS 8555-00 bass, I've tried to change the mid driver with focal W 4211 or SS Kevlar but it only made it worse , especially the voices and the higher piano notes . I'm a beginner really in need of advise . The software I use is Xover Pro !
Thanks
JP Haggar

You need a frequency response plot to see the extent of the problem before you can design anything to sort it out.

You can try and ad some resistors to paralel components in crossover - and I think you need an RC on bass

I looked at Xover Pro's web page and as far as I can tell, it does not incorporate the measured frequency response of the drivers. This is referred to as a 'feature'. In fact, this limitation (if I didn't misread the page) will not recognise cone breakup and as you're no doubt aware, cone breakup is a larger issue in crossover design.

Looking at woofer - it does have cone break up like it was a metalcone

Sorry to reply so fast again - you refer to ringing as being in the 400 to 800hz region - so I suspect you hear it on saxofone low midvoice and deeper strings on violins etc. - if so I am almost certain it is a crossover malfunktion - maybe phase problems - the lowest crossover point is very difficult to get right.

I have a hump at around 800Hz and I use an RLC string in parallel with the woofer. It works well but is difficult to design without crossover simulation as results are often touchy and/or unpredictable.
