For the most part, eq only applies to linear distortion. In this case, yes poor quality drivers require more eq. However the eq filters are still static. Active doesn’t mean dynamic. Very few speakers use dynamic eq. That is used on better systems to improve their performance at the limits but again, not something average joe needs to worry about. If I were designing a cheap speaker, I would apply limiters and dynamic eq to help the speaker play louder with less distortion. This is different from biamping or active filters generally.\nJust to be clear I wasn't asking about bi-amping. So dynamic EQ is possible and given sharply dropping the cost of processing seems reasonable more budget active speakers. Is it possible to assume that dynamic DSP with active xover could overcome some of the limitations of budget drivers, proving more neutral but dynamically limited speaker?
