  • Tweeter protection

    Hi all

    Which, if any, is the better method of protect your tweeter in a active setup where there is no ”normal” XO in series with your tweeter?
    • A capacitor in series with the tweeter
    • A resistor in series with the tweeter and a inductor parralell with the tweeter
    • A fast blowing fuse

    If there is a fourth method that is perferred, plase tell me. I use all of the abovementioned methods in my active setups.

    Regards//lasse.

    Use a capacitor, sized as a 1st order high pass one octave below the crossover frequency.

      Hi and thanks!

      Is the same principle applicable on a midrange?

        Yes. In either case you'll have to account for the extra leading phase when implementing your crossover. Generally a midrange isn't as delicate as a tweeter.
