If your loudspeaker is somewhat too soft at a specific frequency then you probably will not notice this. On the other hand, if the speaker is too loud at certain frequencies, this is regarded as irritating (everything that stands out or is exaggerated is irritating to the human ear, understatements are usually not noticed).

Therefore we are offering a suppressor circuit calculator removing a rise in the frequency response. In the following the frequencies and their damping in dB is indicated when the RLC crossover component is fitted.

Please enter the loudspeaker impedance (4, 8 or ... Ohm) and the corresponding correction values (frequency fd, damping dmax) and adjust the width of the lowered curve with the buttons resp. .

Please note: the calculated level drop in the frequency response is only correct, if the entered loudspeaker impedance matches the measured value. At the resonance frequency this is surely not the case; here, the level drop is a lot less severe, since the impedance of the speaker is higher.
