Featuring an exclusive response control that helps you fine-tune your sound system for optimal performance.
The Ashly XR-2001 is a Stereo 3-Way, Mono 4/5-Way crossover based upon a powerful state-variable filter circuit, which guarantees that two adjacent frequency band outputs always remain in phase. The XR-2001 crossover offers a number of useful and unusual features, including continuous tuning, a response control, and a unique output stage which maintains low noise at any level setting. It also includes a 200:1 tuning range, output mute switch, and both TRS and XLR connectors. Like other Ashly products, this crossover features low noise and distortion, active balanced inputs, a peak level indicator, a precision regulated power supply, protection against abnormal input or output conditions, and rugged mechanical construction. Conservative design and an unusually thorough procedure for quality control have earned Ashly a reputation for dependability in the recording, sound reinforcement, and broadcast fields.
Response Control; an Ashly Exclusive...
This control, found adjacent to the crossover frequency control, adjusts the damping of the filter affecting the response shape of the filters at the crossover point. The dial calibrations refer to the amount of attenuation effected by the filter at the crossover frequency, i.e., a setting of 3dB means that the filter's high-pass and low-pass outputs are each "rolled off 3dB at the crossover point". This describes Butterworth filter response, or a gentle 3dB peak at the crossover point when the two filter output signals overlap. To obtain a flat signal, or "Linkwitz-Riley" response through the crossover region, set the Response control to "6". This attenuates each output of the filter by 6dB at the crossover point (two identical signals added together yield a +6dB increase). To obtain a notch at the crossover point, turn down the response control past "6" to best suit your needs.
The purpose of this control is to help offset the inaccuracies inherent in typical loudspeakers, thereby helping you to achieve a flat system response. NOTE: The Response control is not a "slope" control. A 24dB/octave crossover will always have a slope of 24dB/octave. The Response control only affects filter response shape in the immediate vicinity of the crossover frequency; the ultimate crossover slope is a fixed parameter.

First off I'm a professional sound engineer for 22 years not a sales guy. I have used Ashly x overs for many years and the new features on the Xr-2001 are fantastic take a look at the specs this is the real deal. Forget all that craziness with the dbx drive rack. I used the dbx drive rack in a live environment for about 3 shows after loosing my SAVED programs several times I ripped it out and threw it in the street(not kidding). I found DBX DR to make the system sound like a mp3 very thin. Ashly designed the "wheel" ok think about it 30 years says a lot. I make my buying decision based on my ears not some flashy brand name. Keep it simple stupid (kiss)!
