Well thanks for getting back on that.

I've tried acoustic butterworth type filters myself, and didn't find they sounded special.

Regular third order works well enough IMO.

Yes I suppose it shows how bad some of the 70's KEF crossovers were, these monitor audio crossovers are okay, although the one I've changed had issues with connection to the binding posts so I'm going to take my time and do a better job of cleaning it up before I refit it.

My old lecturer on filters at college explained that crossovers only make a lot of difference in the octave around crossover. The rest of the skill is getting the tonal balance right.

Troels Gravesen works toward a restrained tonal balance. Not overly bright at the top.

SEAS-3-Way-Classic

I only mention this because those MA4 speakers would make a goodish three-way with a fairly substantial hobby effort.

My nephew has a pair of Celestion Ditton 22. Superb vintage speakers:

You'd need to add a midrange enclosure:

Complete Ditton 22 rebuild

3-ways are just so much better! All about the voice clarity.

Yes I agree with that they would make a good 3 way I thought about that myself although I wouldn't want to make a mess if the cabs.
