Title: Do I need a crossover
Post by: Clayton James on October 20, 2019, 11:45:52 am
Iím new to running sound so I really could use some help. Iím using a Behringer xr18 mixer with two Cerwin Vega cve powered 12 and cve18 subs. Do I need a crossover with this setup or am I good?

Clayton, in general an external crossover is not necessary with powered speakers as they will contain all the necessary processing for all possible configurations. In this case the fine manual indicates that the sub contains a switchable 100hz hi pass filter that should be engaged when tops are connected to the output jacks.
