I would try the circuit suggested by Lojzek in the thread I quoted:

Dynaudio 17W75-XL and D28/2 Crossover and bass reflex help

He's usually a safe pair of hands!

Impedance correction could take us into some deep water. It often gets into trouble because it doesn't allow for bafflestep (bass boost at low frequency to correct the box).

I don't want to go into it.

Flat Impedance and Flat Power response design.

Hi, unless you have some frequency response and impedance measurements/curves for the drivers in this cabinet (or those of the raw drivers), there is not much to be gained from any of these schematics as it is not possible to say what response is being produced; why certain correction circuits are used, what level of attenuation is needed, etc. Or I suppose you could do your best by ear.

Edit: found a spec sheet for the woofer https://site.diy-loudspeakers.com/im...IO_17W75XL.pdf and the tweeter https://site.diy-loudspeakers.com/im...UDIO_D28AF.pdf

One could plug these into software and start from there.

There is impedance compensation both before and after the crossover, serving different purposes. It is safest to not use the components in red.

motokok, most folks here don't know Ohm's Law from a hole in the ground! I don't mean that unkindly. We are largely a get-you-up-and-running clinic, without too much technical stuff.

To get a simulator running with microphones and all that is just not going to happen for the average person. Never mind all the intricasies of different order filters...

Trust me, a well-behaved 6" bass and tweeter like the Dynaudio stuff is something people like Lojzek can do with his eyes shut. I and AllenB know a bit about it too. Try Lojzek's circuit. It is perfect for preludes' application and exact drivers. What it isn't is first order electrical slopes. But I have never seen Lojzek put a foot wrong.

Well, I did my best to trace the spec sheets; better than nothing. The woofer spec sheet confirms the RC circuit values they recommend. These curves look suspiciously linear!

Hello and sincerely thank you all for your contributions. It is true that I like to understand a pattern well before applying it and often I leave with more questions than answers when I try techniques in my corner.
I will therefore base my theoretical diagram on your experiences and advice for these drivers.
I will then try to flesh it out using simulation and ear blindtesting using impedence compensation (part circled in red).

I hope I haven't polluted Ray's post too much

Because the crossover is not designed by a professional, but a amateur. I want to know this crossover is suit for this speaker or not. What is the crossover frequency of it? Should I add a L-pad to damp the tweeter driver?

Thanks for the reply in advance.
Don't worry about ray! He never got an answer anyway. Probably married now, speakers collecting dust in the garage because they have low WAF, and putting up kitchen shelves for SHE WHO MUST BE OBEYED...

As it goes, IMO, he probably could have used an L-Pad to bring down the tweeter. But nobody uses L-Pads any more. Crackly things. Just an attenuating resistor.

Seen one speaker, you seen them, all is my approach:

Visaton-Monacor 2 way sealed simple loudspeaker build plans

86dB, 5.1R DCR 8 ohm 6" bass and 90dB 5.3R DCR 8 ohm 1" tweeter? 15-20L box. Port about 2"x4". Bit of stuffing.

Looks tidy enough response. 5.1R/20 Ohms impedance at 10kHz on bass, so Zobel is 6.8/20uF by my reckoning. You could apply a notch around 5kHz on the bass, but that is component heavy. Attenuation on tweeter will be about 6.8R for 6dB.

How hard can it be? But I would use Lojzek's idea. I am sure he simulated the speaker. He knows Dynaudio stuff. All this 6dB slope stuff is just audio hoey. Doesn't work like that anyway.

Good luck with this. Good drivers. Suitable for a medium room.
