I have been thinking about active crossovers and have a few questions. My understanding of optimal components is as follows: Analogue Source -> Active XO -> Pre-Amp -> Amp -> Driver. Nothing special here except I get confused as how to match the volumes of the different drivers. I assume this happens in the Pre-Amp through individual gain controls on each channel. Once adjusted the pre-amp then has a master volume control.
My questions are in regard to the PT-2, PT-3, and Audiophile. The Audiophile makes sense because it combines the Active XO and Pre-Amp. I assume it will have gain controls for each set of drivers? How will individual driver volume be controlled with the PT-2 and PT-3? Will there be a Pre-Amp made that can handle the Six channels of the PT-3? (I suppose it could be 3 channels since the drivers are a matched pair). Will a separate Pre-Amp be created in the future to handle the PT-3?
My other question is assuming that I start out simple the Audiophile seems the perfect beginner set-up? I already have my cabinets and I know what drivers I want, I know where they should be crossed. Is that enough information to get started?
