There's only one thing that bugs me: I don't know the particular type of SE amplifier you use but I guess it is one with only very low output power. I nevertheless wonder if this 6dB/octave crossover is really sufficient for a horn driver ?

Was he referring to the high frequency crossover being sufficient for the horn driver?

Yes exactly that.

But I can live with Brett's answer. I think for people listening areasonable levels it would work out fine.

In my younger days however I had peak levels of about 10 Watts or even more into a horn driver (O.K. I myself regard SPLs like this as insane as well nowadays !!) that was crossed over at 500 Hz. In this case a first order crossover would have definitely been insufficient.

Charles
