Did you Bi-Amp or use passive?

What about the bass? Dont get the meaning of that last sentense. I am sure you can get these speakers sound absolutely brilliant in the end using the existing woofers. No need to buy others.

When you have gotten the mids and highs mated well with woofer(search linkwitz on aliexpress for active xover. Some of them comes with fixed xoverpoint but you can tell them where you want it exactly) then you can see(or hear) if you need to tune the cabs better to make bass-quality as good as mid/high or if it already is.

No you dont get superhighend quality cabinets for the price of a cervin vega, but nothing stops you from turning those cabinets into superhighendquality☺

This is an analogue active filter. If you choose a digital dsp xover you will be able to eq and make timeadjustments and so on with probably superior result.

Many powerfull pa-amplifiers has build in 2 way digital xover. Like the new lowcost behringer dsp amps. They sound great driving woofers. Has build in 2 way xcrossover, so you will only need another 2 way to cross between mid and tweet. Bass will probably benefit tremendously by being driven actively crossed

At the moment I'm in a quandry of which way to go,I started to dismantle passive crossover but have tried with existing and as said big difference when tweeters come I will test with rew .As I will be going to Dirac live soon for room correction not quite sure easiest way to go as my smaller UK room needs taming with these speakers,rear ports are bunged meaning 40hz cut off .I will be off to Ikea for some worktop when happy with drivers to make front baffle what about side ports opposing each other would this work ?
Active analogue crossover looks very interesting but with my probable nad 777 upgrade for Dirac live room correction what would you suggest to integrate these speakers without its passive crossover for stereo and for hometheatre can it be done cheers ?

Stereo 3/4way Xover

These are minidsp s bids on what you want. I think there are more xovers with build in correction. Just take frontchannel outs and put them in the xover/dsp. That Nad is probably great but wont give you the benefits of active xover. Might balance out problems with levels in your passive xover. That would be a new way of upgrading if it works.

While I do own a small DSP unit I haven't used it yet. I was using a cheap Behringer XO. Either the CX 2310 or the CX3400 depending on which system I was pushing
BEHRINGER Behringer Super X Pro CX2310 V2 Crossover vinyl at Juno Records.

Behringer CX3400 Super X Pro V2 &ndash; Thomann UK

I know nothing about port position but at bass frequencies I can't see it making much difference if not hard up against a wall
