12dB / Octave Linkwitz Riley Crossover

The circuit diagram of the filter section is shown in Figure 1. It is a completely conventional filter, and the component designations are the same as for the 24dB unit described in Project 09. It is designed primarily for 2-way electronically crossed over systems, such as adding a subwoofer or biamping an existing loudspeaker system.
