  • Electronic Crossover, DSP or passive?

    Marchand or MiniDSP? Or just stay passive?

    Goals, drivers, room size, existing electronics, budget, measurement capabilities. Lots of info needed for a very broad question.

      Hypex UCD180 DIY amlifiers or Bryston amps, Emotiva DC-1 DAC as DAC and Preamp, digital source via Sony CD player or ethernet or wireless from my NAS via Volumio on Tinker Board SBC. Speakers: DIY Seas 2-way with 6.5 woofer and textile dome tweeter, or Vandersteen 1B. Room 14 x 18. No measurement capabilities yet, depends on which way I might go. Budget up to 1K. Thought it might be interesting and fun to try non passive x-overs and learn about them.

        I use a combination of active for below 200hz (analog) and passive for mid and tweets. I think it is the best
        of both worlds!

          Since you have a Tinker Board with a MPD-based music source, you might consider a Linux solution for active XO: http://techtalk.parts-express.com/fo...d-ladspa-acd-l

            Measurement capability would be my first priority.

              Then you can make any of those options sound as good as possible.
