    Tweeters and x-over frequency

    Is the distinctiveness from my tweeters adjusted by my x-over frequency??

    My Morel Tempo's tweeters are so loud, clear and perfect but my tweeter placement is a little to close to my head and I'd like to turn them down a little.

    Maybe someone can give me some ideas

    Wouldn't turning the gain down turn down everything equally??

    are these passive comps? If so do the xovers allow you to attenuate the tweeter level?

    Re: Tweeters and x-over frequency

    The comps are passive.

    I'm not sure if the xover allows me to attentunate the tweeter level yet.

    But what I DO know is my amp has a few extra knobs including a Bass/Treble/Gain/X-over freq.

    Why is there a bass/treble adjustment on my amp??

    Forget about those knobs. You need to attenuate the tweeters as reccomended above.

    I'm going to go for a stroll to an open field and try and get these things dialed in perfectly. They sound so great now but I cant even imagine what they're going to sound like after I have them dialed in.

    the passive xovers might have jumpers to attenuate the highs.

    There is a +3 and a 0db option on my x-overs, but I didnt need to adjust them.

    All I did was turn down the treble on my amp and it lowered the tweeters to perfection.
