  • "Knowing" what frequency your crossover is set to? Is it possible?

    I am playing around with the integrated subs in my Strata Minis and I was just wondering if there is any way knowing what frequency I have my crossover set to? I mean, the exact HZ. Most plate amps have a low number/high number listed but thats it... Is there a sure way of knowing the in between?

    A simple way is to make a nearfield mic measurement of the woofer response with something like REW and look at the graph. Where the response of the woofer setup is down -3dB is the low pass crossover point frequency.

      I'm not sure but he might mean simple for mere mortals not simple for audiogeeks.:D

        If you can download REW and have a Radio Shack SPL meter you have everything you need. Even the RS SPL meter by itself can do what he wants with test tones.

        Any mere mortal can be an audiogeek. Just takes a few questions and some time! :)
