It is possible to save a significant amount of money by designing the HF power amplifier for a lower power output, but that is a different matter from the bandwidth issue, dealt with in Chapter 14 on crossover system design. If we are dealing with an integrated crossover/power–amplifier/loudspeaker system with everything installed in one enclosure, it is often claimed there is no need to fit shortcircuit protection to the amplifiers as their outputs are not externally accessible, and so money can be saved.

21. The presence of an active crossover in the system makes it easy to add bass-end equalisation of the loudspeaker. An equaliser circuit is added which provides a carefully controlled amount of bass boost to counteract the natural roll-off of the bass drive unit in conjunction with its enclosure, thus extending the level bass response to lower frequencies. This sort of thing always has to be approached with care, as too much equalisation will lead to excessive drive unit displacements and permanent damage.

This is perfectly feasible without any compromise on amplifier performance. Against this must be set the fact that precise, stable, and generally high-quality components for passive crossovers are not cheap, and a top-end passive crossover can easily end up costing more than an active crossover; this does not however take into account the extra power amplifiers. 4. The vast majority of active crossover loudspeakers have been built as one unit. A mono active crossover, and the two or three power amplifiers required, are put inside into the loudspeaker enclosure.
