What should we optimize for - power response or summed response.
While playing in PCD, i came across the following scenario - The power response seems to be higher than the summed response. The summed response is lower than the woofer response - indicate a little bit of cancellation from the tweeter.
Usually I see a dip in the power response around the XO region, but in this case i see the opposite - the Power response is flat compared to the summer response.
The Phase seems to have gone for a toss... inverting the tweeter doesn't seem to do much to the summed or power response - slightly wonky wobble, but nothing more. Trying to get the woofer and tweeter phase to overlap or even come close seems to destroy anything on the summed or power response - so this is probably going to get thrown away and started from scratch. But i wanted to understand power response and summed response what what should be prioritized over what?
The woofer is forth order parallel with a parallel LR Contour filter and tweeter is third order parallel.
