    Aura tweets

    I just recently bought a set of Aura MR62 6.5" comps (thanks desertheatracing, AWESOME speakers!) and noticed that the crossovers have two options for the tweeter. They are 0db and -3db.

    I would like to know which setting would benefit me the most.

    If it makes a difference, I listen to rock anywhere from loud to real loud.

    Do those settings mean that the tweeters will kick in at either 0db or -3db?

    Thanks in advance.

    Re: Aura tweets

    not sure what you mean by kick in???

    it's a simple attenuation (probably butchered that spelling)
    it allows you to choose whether you want them on the same level as your mids(0db) or slightly lower than your mids(-3db) thats all

    Set them at -3db for best results, will be just right. I find the -0 to be a tiny bit brighter than I like.

    Re: Aura tweets

    This thread is three months old but I had to chime in. I also found the 0 dB setting on the crossover to be a little overbearing so I quickly switched over to the -3 dB setting...just perfect...smooth, bright and airy but certainly not shrill or brittle.

    I found that to be the case with all of my Aura speakers.
