Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

RE: Depends on the main speakers

You are absolutely correct.

Low frequencies are a huge amplifier current draw. Whenever we can take that load off the mains amp, things get better.

And, to an earlier point, filtering out the low frequencies from a mains "woofer" which isn't up to the task, allows that driver to perform better (more linearly) in its "good" range.

This isn't rocket science: Who here would even consider having a tweeter try to reproduce 300 Hz?!
