Active crossover circuit

Active Crossover Circuit Given below is an Active crossover circuit suitable for HiFi audio systems using LM833, the dual operational amplifier. Description: Crossover circuits are of two types, active and passive. Passive crossover circuit uses passive components only and they are very simple, but they waste a considerable amount of energy and also induce distortion. Active crossovers does not have the above said draw backs and they are a better option for HiFi audio systems. Active crossovers split the incoming complex audio signal into to two bands, a low frequency out and a high frequency out. These two bands a…
