Presently using the Magnepan crossover. It is a two way external crossover. It splits into two signal. One goes to the mid and high, the other goes to the bass and mid bass.

I removed the ribbon tweeter form the Maggie panel and built a passive crossover using ClarityCaps CSA capacitors and Solen Perfect Lay inductors. When I get further along I will tweak the mid to tweeter passive crossover and upgrade the components.

I have a DBX Venu360 coming and will be able to biamp. I will use the Venu360 to get close to the correct parameters for a crossover. I have a Pass DIY biamp 6-24 crossover kit. I will probably end up with a PAss Labs XVR-1 before it is all over.

Finally someone on here that has an actually decent stereo. Now that should sound good...


The loudspeaker combo looks very cool!  Can you add some details about the crossover?
