Then you've had plenty of answers on that point, including mine. There is no generic 'folly' to not using a crossover, as I said in my first post, where I in fact (partly) supported the idea. In some cases, it can work fine. Unfortunately, there are also plenty of cases where it doesn't, so as noted, it ultimately depends on exactly what you're doing. Perhaps you could explain exactly how and why you interpreted that as 'idiotic', 'ego[tistical], and 'having a go [at you]'?
I don't actually waste my time wondering what other people think of me, so no. However, for reference, for many years I've said these exact words in many places, on many occasions:You may think me unkind but I think the only point of your post was to enhance your guru status. I don’t require your synopsis of the debate or your opinion on the success or otherwise of my stance .
Any person who considers themself to be an expert on any subject is not one.
That's my view on the matter. End of.
I don't. There is no such thing as a ridiculous question if the person asking doesn't know the answer. Since you say you didn't, it wasn't. QED. But you've obviously got the idea now, and the answer is (as I said from the outset) that without knowing what the drivers and box are, we don't, and can't know what you might hear. If you tell us what they are, we might be able to make a guess at some possible characteristics. The key words being 'might' and 'guess', since it's never more than that. Over to you: what are the drivers and box?You may think it is a ridiculous question without knowing drivers and box ,then just say so , god knows I ask enough ridiculous questions
