    Yes, but it will be measured phase. You still need to extract min phase of you want to model your crossovers using that. You can model with measured but min provides more flexibility.

      • made some small tweaks to some of the resistors last night , it is nice and flat . am looking to see if i can tame the 3rd order distortion peak at 2500 a lil . for $45 worth of drivers its not a bad speaker . clarity in the vocals is nice and i am liking how cymbals are sounding . i am how ever a lil disappointed in the low end extension , that goes for the 180P as well so i'm thinking i missed on the box and or slot port ...

        • with a tropical storm heading at us i've took today off , this shoiuld give some time to work on these . i've been adding length to the port looking for low end . as of now i'm at 1 x 7 x 21 and my box i is around ,4^3 ... if im reading my woofer near-fields right this is giving low 40's and the speaker is sounding much better and full range now ... i also took a near-field of the port , though i'm not really sure of what i'm looking at here ...

          • about ready to wrap this up ... i like the port length at 21" gonna open them up and add the extra length permanently . the last couple of days i have been listening to the lil 3 way , when it gets loud it gets a lil shouty . i am working on trimming the mid and matching the tweet to that ...

            • spent the weekend listening to the lil 3 way at loud volume , no fatigue ... this is where i'm at now and likely the final XO .... i was just gonna cut the second 3 way baffle and finish this up , however i think i'm gonna spend a week or 2 working on the 180p/28f and try and make it the best speaker i can . i need to order some caps anyway to clean up the 3 way as its looking like a hot mess rite now !

              • before i re-wire the 2 way i thought i'd take a look at with the XO i designed for the surrounds , which was for on wall placement . on its back in the middle of the floor firing up from about 3ft tweet axis ...
