Just wondering...I don't know much about component sets. Also, why are components better than coaxials?

Cross-overs separate the signals between the drivers. THis way the tweeter plays the high frequencies and the woofer plays the low frequencies. If you tried to play low frequencies on a tweeter it would be very easily damaged.

comps.are better that you can take the tweeter and mount it up higher than the woofer to bring the soundstage up.making the music sound more realistic.making it sound like your actually there when the music is played,not just sitting in a box!

Generally it's best to keep the tweeters as close to the mids as possible. Properly aimed, you should still be able to acheive a high soundstage.

I'm not a fan of high-mounted tweeters.


But a more accurate statement would be to say that an advantage of components is that the tweeter can be independently mounted and aimed.
