Smile x-over

I assume that the x-over will be discrete? I currently own a nice sounding TDM 4th order unit manufactured locally, but, would love to lift the veil a bit more in my system by going to discrete components. Do you suppose this unit will tri-amp? Balanced inputs/outputs are a must with a fully horn loaded system.

anxious in Oregon City,

John Inlow

More gratuitous Haiku:

Two make a triamp
There will not be a limit
No op amp, discrete

Hmm,

Sounds very interesting,

Perhaps Mr Pass has in mind discrete buffer stages than can be used as building blocks (balanced of course), and filter stage boards that can be setup for various slopes, Q etc so that its quite universal and can be customised for individual needs.... .

regards

Default Just like in the real world.....

Thanks for the feedback, Nelson. I'm glad to see that the bi-amp x-over can feed another unit, and so forth and so on. This is going to be wonderful!

Could you translate that into Spanish? then I'd have a fighting chance!! I'm sure the rest of you recognize the quote and can explain it to me

Variac,

As requested. I could just give you the english translation but this is half the fun of it It's a rather apt phrase i would have to say.

Las fronteras de su lengua son las fronteras de su mundo.

Well, some people here have tongues like frogs, then.
In the U.S. I can feel quite clever to know 2 languages, in the rest of the world they would probably wonder why only two?

I have to say my favorite threads are when an idea catches fire and everyone jumps on and contribute, with everything from jokes to theory. A real danger when dealing with clever people!

reminds me of the regenerating thread, where we ended up with all the relevent info to build a motor generator to replace transformers in amps, when absolutely no one was planning to really make one. But now someone could!

AC Power Regeneration anybody?

In this world, there are the multi-lingual, there are the bi-lingual, then there are the Americans.

If Nelson sees what we're talking about he will never put out the AXO! He will think we are to busy talking of everithing else

OR..

He might think that we already finished all our projects and are wainting for more...

Default AXO the XO

Well I guess Nelson should be able to name his children, but it looks like the crossover is named AXO for the moment at least.

And of course he will make the crossover balanced, he wouldn't cop out with an unbalanced design!!!! geez wot are you thinkin' mon?
