If you prefer to cut-off two drivers with different filters, e.g. the bass driver with 12dB/octave and the tweeter with 18dB/octave, click here
Often bass drivers have a much higher efficiency in the midrange than at lower frequencies. To compensate for this, the crossover is often designed with a 2 dB reduced bass driver efficiency. Since then the midrange is too pronounced, the bass driver is going to be cut-off at a lower frequency. In order to keep the values of all other components, the crossover frequency should be halved (e.g. from 2000 Hz to 1000 Hz). The components' values required by the bass driver are then displayed.
A crossover calculated using this tool doesn't take the drivers' characteristics into consideration. For the design of a high quality hi-fi loudspeaker the crossover needs to be optimised.
