I'm using a basic 2.1 system. That is, a DVC subwoofer and a pair of satellites using a 2way subwoofer crossover at 150 Hz. The low pass filter is 12db/oct and the high pass is 6db/oct.
The sensitivity of the sub is 89db in stereo/parallel mode. The satellites are 2-way coax speakers with a sensitivity of 89db each with a built-in 2-way crossover at 3200Hz.
I need to attenuate the satellite by approx. 4-6 db. Is it safe to place the attenuation circuit right after the high pass section of the subwoofer crossover and before the filtering section of the satellites built-in 2way crossover. I've read that attentuation should take place after the crossover section right before the driver. Is it safe to do this? What power rating do I need for the resistors?THese satellites are rated 25W rms/50W max.
