Recently I’ve convinced myself that I really want a pair of Adam A77x monitors after having the A7x for a while.
I really want front ported and the cool thing about the A77x is that it’s a 3 way, both of the 7 inch woofers handle different frequencies so there is a left and right difference in a pair.
Enter Emotiva C1+ passive center channel speakers.
My idea is to get a crossover that will accomplish the same thing as the A77x, effectively turning a pair of these center channel speakers into left and right monitors and either removing the 3 inch midrange driver and using it as a port or drilling some ports to the bottom left and right of the 3 inch driver.
Now the problem: I have no idea what I’m doing. Speakers are foreign to me and crossovers seem like quantum physics to my brain so I wouldn’t know where to begin. Do companies like Adam Audio sell their crossovers or is this something I’m going to have to build or have built based on rough estimates of Adam’s crossovers or is it more complicated and takes significantly more tuning than that and won’t work with different drivers as they will have naturally different tuning? Is this a huge waste of time? A pair of A77x is like 5x the price of pair of C1+ so I feel like if it could be accomplished it would be significantly cheaper.
Anyone know where to start with all this? Boredom fueled DIY and a brain that won’t shut up thinking there’s more to be had from something with slight tweaks. Someone give me direction or tell me I’m stupid and I should stop.
