RE: 300hz is too high

When my speakers were fully passive, they relied more on natural roloff of the various horns to create the slopes, than on the first order crossovers - mainly there to stop the robust Atlas midrange driver from frying. So I don't think whatever happens lower than 400Hz is making really much difference ( wére not talking extreme slopes here).
The reason I went active on the low pass is because I changed bass horns, and the new ones don't roll off so quick above 400Hz - I had to have a steeper slope than 6dB/oct because it sounded like crap.
But my 8 watts amp is now driving the high pass only and there's 50watts on the bass horns, and I like the added power for sure!
