  1. I opted to put some of these questions in this forum as I read the article bass myths from the website. Although, I agree and understand all the concepts in the article many other concepts have floated around in other articles and forums. Either I have had a misunderstanding or there is two sides of the coin to the argument or the supposed argument isn't well defined. Now, there is no point in advertising what I know, lets just say I am not an amateur but in saying that obviously what i don't know is not tangible in terms of books or proper explanations in forums. Lets get to the point, I have just discovered that according to "some"(by all means possible experts) to improve transients all your doing is really cutting off or reducing the low end bass wavelengths from the extension. Which eliminates those frequencies and in turn gives you less overhang or better transients. Now this correlates to the bass myths article where its mentioned that "The fastest sounding bass is when there is no bass." Now, I know there is no such thing as fast bass but there definitely is overhang. I have improved my subs from .707 to a .58 QTC and you can feel significantly less overhang. Where I am going with this is lets put aside the transients for a bass cab or a subwoofer. If the above is true then by simply crossing over your PA cab with a sub woofer will improve transients to the PA cab right?. My question is, isn't designing the enclosure alignment important in knowing how the bass will react in terms of overhang? For instance for a mid cab playing from 500hz and above and we prefer better transients does the qtc play a role in the overhang? If the cab has nothing to do with long wavelengths then I would suppose QTC has no role right?(according to the above theory)
