    Shallow slope crossover

    what are the negatives of having an amp with a 12db cross over?

    rather than 18 or 24

    less protection
    more overlap

    There isn't really a "best" or "worst" crossover slope, it's all dependent upon the entire setup and which slope works better for your particular situation. Sometimes 12db is better, sometimes 18db is better, etc etc

    Re: Shallow slope crossover

    For instance the jbl 1200 is a 12 crossover. In what aspects would this crossover affect any system negatively and positively
