In this article, I walk through the steps using Acourate
to create a 3-way digital crossover (XO) for tri-amping my speakers. Additionally, using the audio toolbox functions of Acourate, I walk through the steps of time aligning the drivers, linearizing each driver, and performing a final room correction.
With respect to room correction, I recommend reading, “Acourate Digital Room and Loudspeaker Correction Software Walkthrough
” for an introduction to Acourate. The article details the steps of acquiring a calibrated microphone, measuring the system, and designing a baseline room correction to provide the listener with a perceptually flat frequency response at the listening position.
My goal is to make this guide repeatable so anyone following the same steps should be able to achieve similar results. Using digital XO, time aligning and linearizing the drivers, and correcting the room’s frequency and excess phase response, increases my systems imaging resolution so my speakers *disappear*.
