There is nothing in the N3 crossover to pull any of the low frequency off of those woofers. If you play them in free air with that crossover then any really low frequency information will bottom out the woofers with as little as 10 watts or less. A good 20Hz note might bottom them out with 5 watts.
If you need me to then I will work up you a deal for an OB-5 crossover with the least expensive parts that I carry.
Hi Danny and all Audio Circle members.
Not that I don't believe Danny, but I wanted to see/hear for myself what would happen if I fed the N3TL drivers in an open baffle configuration with the N3TL crossover.
Well, I just did that and guess what ?
I've put 8 watts on the drivers for one full afternoon and the drivers are still fine.
When touching with my fingers the cones of the M130-16 I could feel that the drivers were not at their maximum excursions.
Now, as soon as I will get my N3TL enclosures I will install the drivers in them and listen to music.
I am anxious to hear how much bass and how deep the bass will go, however, I know that I cannot make any comparaison with my V1 and V2.
Please don't get me wrong, I don't want the members of Audio Circle to think that Danny was wrong, maybe I was just lucky not blowing those small drivers.
After all, I was born on a Friday 13th, therefore for me, it means that I am lucky.
