    Hello !

    I have just bought a pair of external cross overs, developed by Derek Hughes and marketed by Graham audio especially for the Rogers 5/8 to enable the user to use any power amp and not be limited by the Quad 405 and its rather badly designed cross-over.

    Has anyone had some positive experiences with this ?

    Can it really improve the quality of the good old Rogers ?

    Thanks

    Alexander

    Hi Alexander!

    When you say you have just bought a pair of new crossovers, I'm assuming they line-level electronic type rather than speaker-level passive ones. If so, which power amps are you intending to use with them?

    I would be interested to know how you get on with them. I've been keeping an eye on your thread and the replies at vintage-radio.net.

    as i mentioned before, my fear is that the improvement in sound will be insignificant and the lack of tweeter protection is a concern too. Would be interesting to hear from someone, who has experience using the passive cross-overs.
