    Crossovers for pro audio?

    Question to the guys running pro audio. What kind of crossovers do you run? Are there any passive crossovers or do you have to run active?

    I run active with a Pio 880, but you can get amps that are bandpass capable, passive xovers from PE, or use FMOD's....

    Most pro audio is still 8 ohms, and there are tons of passive crossovers for them on parts express and the speaker vendor sites.

    you probably dont need to bandpass pro audio, i use those 5k passive on my tweets and let my amp do the crossover on the midrange

    If you want them to sound good you need to bandpass the mids. If you want them to be loud/screechy then let them roll off up top...
