    ...never (as far as I know) have a switch that lets you send all the highs through the woofers if you don't want to use the tweeter?

    AFAIK most cabs with tweeter crossovers have them to keep the lows from going to the tweeter. They don't keep the woofer from producing whatever highs it can.

    Cool, that's what I wanted to know. So basically the attenuation knob does the same thing anyway.

    Not true... at least for the peavey 410tx series. I know for a fact the 4-10s are used as a subwoofer/mid. There is a cap and inductor in the 10" circuit path. And when I bypassed the crossover the 10s sounds MUCH more alive. In fact I know run my cab without the horn and the 4-10's full range and it sounds great. I never really liked the sound on tweaters anywho... too tinny and harsh.

    my goliath jr has nothin in between the 10's and the input.

    my triad does, but that's kind of it's "thing" still...i could theoretically make the 15 full range, right?

    Theoretically... yes...lol It all depends on what the speakers are designed for. If the speaker(s) can handle the freguencies then it will work fine

    Like Brad said cabs are made both ways....

    Sorry, Brad I did not see the "MOST" in your posts. I ws no trying to jump on you.
