Let's say I've got two horns mounted on a frame. There's a high horn above and a mid horn below and they are physically time aligned, meaning the magnets of the drivers are about at the same vertical axis.
I want to cross them over (either passive or active or line level passive) at 2kHz.
I want to try 6db/octave slopes and 12 db/octave slopes for SQ comparisons sake.
The sound wavelength @ 2kHz is about 7 inches. 6db crossover have a 90 deg. phase shift; 12db crossover have a 180 deg. phase shift.
And the QUESTION IS:
Switching between 6db and 12db crossovers slopes (and other slopes like 18 and 24db), do I also need to physically move the mid and high horns in relation to each other to have proper time alignment? Or should I leave the horns the way they are?
