  • Peerless xt25bg60-04 Crossover Slope

    I have been doing a lot of research on the Peerless tweeter xt25bg60-04. I have read conflicting information on the crossover point/slope of this tweeter. Just curious if anyone has opinion on my crossover slope. I have tried a 3rd order on the tweeter, but I can't get the phase to line up. Just curious on anyone's opinion from those who have used it.
    Thanks!!

    I will play all day where you have it. Only thing I would recommend is possibly adding a compensation circuit on the impedance peak at Fs, but you are well down at that frequency so it might be ok.


    These tweeters are hyper robust.
    Don't listen to me - I have not sold any $150,000 speakers.

      I have heard of people doing this with this tweeter. The fs of the tweeter is down 25db. I modeled it below, but just wasn't sure if it was needed. I suppose I could build it both ways and see what sounds best.

        No, place the LCR across the tweeter, not before the xover. As you have it, it will not do as intended. You are flattening the system impedance, not the tweeter impedance.

          Thanks Wolf!! I will try modeling it the correct way tonight. I ordered the parts without it so that I can listen to it. The only way I will learn is to try and learn the hard way. I appreciate the help. I will probably order parts to try it with the compensation circuit so I can hear for myself also. I think I am getting to a point where I can put together a thread of what I am doing in case people are interested. I know I enjoy seeing peoples builds.

            If you plan to stick with it for a while, throw a few extra parts into the order. This gives you some room to play around and get to know what everything does, and how it relates to your ears. Resistors and caps are fairly cheap but the inductors can get expensive.

                You might consider "Get File" in the frequency response window and add a target curve. You can generate target curves from dlr Win filters https://www.speakerdesign.net/WinFilters/index.htm
