Question on crossover freqs

Youngling Posts: 7 Join Date: 12/4/15 Recent Posts
Hello Guys,

I have some doubts in my mind.

When we use Active SUB(F one in my case) in a 2.1 active channel , we know that the low freq till 85 Hz are produced by the SUB and all 85 Hz+ freq are produced by the other 2 active speakers(8010 in my case).
My query is that what happens when we use -4 db or -6 db switches on the active speakers. Low freq cut off will be same.
I have noticed the Active speakers become less loud when i use -6/-4 db switches.

Could anyone please explain what really happens in above scenario ?

Thanks guys. I hope i am not asking too much technical.

Please see the 8010 operating manual, page 5. You can see frequency response measurements showing the effect of BASS TILT setting at -2 dB, -4 dB and -6 dB settings. That setting is designed to compensate for the wall loading. ... _opman.pdf
