Is it normal for tweeters to be Xover into the male vocal range.

    I've noticed on my speakers I can hear most male vocals coming from my tweeters. Is this normal? I thought vocals would come through the Mid. Correct me if I'm wrong. My tweeters are 1" Titatanium Domes. Thanks

    Guess what I should really be asking is what is the frequency range of normal male vocals i.e. David Gimour-Pink Floyd, Ian Anderson-Jethro Tull.

    Well, what part of it are you hearing? My speakers use a steep crossover at 2.2 kHz and I can hear a little of the 'raspy' high end from male vocals if I disconnect my woofers. I'm not sure about the exact frequency ranges though.

    Also, what speakers do you have? Maybe the tweeter has a shallow crossover so you can hear a small amount of the lower frequencies of the voice, when the rest of the speaker is really producing the majority of it.
