Active Crossover questions..
I am familiar with both passive and active crossover designs, my question is as follows:
If the amplifier already has built-in low/high/bandpass filters how would a active crossover improve the system.
Wouldn't the active crossover on the amplifier serve this purpose or does the active crossover before the amplifier offer something the amplifier does not offer ?
Is the crossover/s on an amplifier such as mine considered active or passive ?
Maybe the active crossover before the amplifier offers more adjustments than just the crossover on the amplifier ?
Educate me, please..
