    Recommended Crossover for Dyn Esotar2

    Hello everyone.

    I am a totally brand new member. I am very glad I found this community.

    I have a quick question about crossover:

    My system:

    Fully active 3-way Dynaudio Esotar 2
    DSP: Audison Bitone
    Tweeters: Esotar2 110 on A pillar
    Midranges: Esotar2 430 on A pillar
    Woofers: Esotar2 650 on door (close to kick panel)
    Subwoofer: Single Esotar2 1200 in the trunk
    The 110 - 430 - 650 are powered by DLS TA2 amp (3 of them in total)
    The 1200 is powered by Crown BPX 1100.1

    Can anyone recommend me the crossover settings that you believe that would be appropriate for my system?

    Thank you!!!

    Some safe settings would be 80 Hz 24 dB on the 1200, 80 Hz 24 dB and 1 kHz 24 dB for the 650s, 1 kHz 24 dB and 3 kHz 24 dB for the 430s, and 3 kHz 24 dB for the 110s. Do you have an RTA setup to use to check the frequency response? Even a smartphone RTA app is better than nothing.

    Thank you trumpet. Your reply is greatly appreciated.

    My professional did the tuning for me and set the following crossover:
    E110: 3000Hz 18dB
    E430: 250Hz - 3000Hz 18dB
    E650: 45Hz - 300Hz 18dB
    E1200: 45Hz 24dB

    How do you guys think? It's weird? It depends? It's brilliant?

    Nooo, do not low pass the subwoofer that low. That's putting it to waste when it only plays 1 octave and some change. Raise it up and raise the HPF on the mids the same amount, no overlap.

    Re: Recommended Crossover for Dyn Esotar2

    I tried multiple combinations and the best result so far is
    4kHz
    1kHz - 4kHz
    45Hz - 1kHz
    45Hz

    Slope at 24dB for all.

    And it sounds much better now... Thank you guys!
