Default how to check if Tweeters are in Phase?

I've wondered how people would check this?

mids, midbass, Sub drivers are much easier to check, but tweeters I have never been able to tell

Something you want to keep in mind is that you want your tweeters to be in ACOUSTIC phase which can be different from their electrical phase.

how do I check if they are in Acoustic phase? and is this referring to the slope used on the x-over point?

acoustic phase is the phase of the wavelength when it reaches your ear(s). high frequency wavelengths are really too short to make this a concern, unless you drive with your head in a vise. just concentrate on relative intensity at this point.

The slope used only affects the phase at the crossover point. It determines whether you will have a peak or a dip at the crossover point. Acoustic phase has more to do with how far the drivers are from your ears. If you move a Speaker further/closer to you its acoustic phase changes in relation to its relative distance to you.

I turn off everything else except the tweets, lower the volume, drop the crossover to 1K and use a verified track to align everything up by ear. Raise the crossover back up, turn everything back on......

exact same thing I do. I actually go a tad bit lower... closer to 800hz. Makes t/a differences easier to tell.

However, I've had good luck lately just using mono pink noise.


FWIW, tweeters are best set by gains. ILD.
