Sirs, (and ladies, of course),
Have any of you experience with modifying the POLK CS400i
crossover network so as to allow the drivers to be amplified
separately by the left and right audio channels?
In addition, have any of you experience with connecting the crossover, once modified to allow binaural amplification, to be driven by the Positive Speaker Leads from the left and right
Doing so would seem to introduce speaker energy only when there is a phase angle difference between the right and left Positive speaker leads, but that is acceptable under the following circumstance:
The speaker is to be used as a monitor for a shortwave receiver that employs Main and Diversity receive channels. These separate channels have individual antennae that are polarized 90 degrees apart, so as to capture distant signals subject to atmospheric disturbances that often result in phase angle differences. The object is to use a speaker that can truthfully reproduce the wide dynamic range of shortwave communications yet remain a point source rather than a stereo image, allowing the receive operator's mind to assemble the phase angle errors and form a cohesive binaural image.
Thank you for your comments and suggestions.
