Do it the Modern Way

Adding Aktiv cards to amplifiers was the approach taken throughout the 1990s through to 2014. It has been superceeded by Linn's Exakt technology using ExaktBox. Exaktboxes are smart digital cross-overs that sit between the source and the amplifier and can be confirgure to match the speaker being used.
