Default No Cross Over!

My friend just bought a pair of Canadian made speakers, forgot about the brand, but he claim that the speaker has no cross over.
Is this possible?

Chris

But it was a 2 way, one tweeter and one woofer, two binding posts in the back of the speaker thou?

Hi,

I fail to see how they could get away with that really...unless they need to be bi-amped and the X-over is built into the amp or an active X-over perhaps??

Anyone?

Cheers,

Are you sure that there was no capacitor hidden inside the tweeter? (behind the terminals)

It could be that the 'speakers are made by Axon, on some of their 2-way models no inductor is used on the woofer but there is still a capacitor and perhaps some resistors on the tweeter.

Default I KNOW THAT SPEAKER.

Hi,

That must be Audio Reference 3A.

I think that speaker dates from the early nineties and I'm pretty sure a cap was used to filter the highs.

Most of the line was based on Audax units.

Cheers,

Frank,
I think you are correct, I just found their web site, do not know whether it is Audax driver though, it sound very nice not broken in yet. Driven by a pair of very strange big tube mono amps, with five chrome plated circular covers, Mastersound something.

You don't really need crossover in a woofer (if properly chosen), and that's what I'm doing with my Triangle mini-monitors. But the cap is almost necessary in a tweeter network, if only for protection against excessive power levels.
