    To go from a whisper to a shout, add a Zero.

    Re: Going from passive to active

    Actually, I have not converted, yet. "Life" got in the way with some car malfunctions and I recently cracked a tooth which is going to require an implant...which is quite expensive. And, I am headed to Florida for a week's vacation. When I come back I plan on delving into it.

    But, getting back to my original inquiry I was thinking that since each driver was getting it's own channel to receive power (instead of left front, right front, etc. getting a channel when running passive) that was why it may sound louder. I am running Morel components and while going passive the right front (tweeter and midbass) get power from one channel. And, obviously, the left front will get the same power. But, going active each midbass will get it's own channel and each tweeter will get it's own channel off the amp to receive power. This is why I was thinking it was going to sound louder.

    Tweeters are `amplitude` dependant and cap from passive will provide additional protection , Time alignment yields minimal results on tweeters.
