Hey guys, im about to run active on my front tweets and curious as to the threshold on these tweets (danger zone) for crossing. The passive from polk is at 3.1k 3rd order. Im new to active and passing this through a bit one so i have a lot of flexibility. I was thinking of coming down to the 2k to 1k area. Sorry if this has been covered im just very nervous about dropping lower than 2.5.

Thanks so much in advance
John

Don't go so low.

How high can the woofer play up to without breaking up? That should be the basis of the crossover point. Higher sounds better up to the point the woofer can no longer play flat.

Depends a lot on the mid you are using.

I find mine sound best set at 4k with a 24db slope. Too much lower and they did not sound so hot when the volume was turned up.
