One of the conversations in another thread discussing AA networks, I commented on the observation that if you carefully re-equalize your loudspeakers (and perhaps phase/time alignment) after changing passive crossovers--or just change out electrical parts like capacitors--that you can't tell the difference in sound from before the parts change. This phenomenon is apparently not widely known based on discussions in that thread. Many people apparently believe that certain components have a characteristic sound to them...sort of like an organismic view applied to audio components. In another thread from over 5 years ago this topic was discussed at length. The following three posts illustrate that discussion of the difference in sound from horn-loaded loudspeakers (a Belle Klipsch in this particular case) that are re-EQed and time aligned: So this thread will illustrate the phenomenon of re-EQing to achieve certain loudspeaker sound signatures and give tips for those that are willing to move beyond typical "audiophile" organismic thinking related to passive crossovers and the exact materials used therein.
