Hi Bert,

Thanks for your reply and funny to talk English, us beeing two Dutch guys after all :grin:

As for the crossover; yes, I use a highpass filter for the Oris.
My Minidsp 4x10 allows me to do just about everything I can think of.
At the moment The Oris is limited from 200Hz to 5K , both 18Db/oct.

The cornerhorns play from 200Hz downwards , 3th order as well.
Using the tweeters just brought back the "spark" so to say, it's more dynamic and also there's more [a wider] soundstage.

Time delay is applied for compensating the lenght of the cornerhorns, just over 4ms.
The tweeter has some more delay to compensate for the 40cm it's closer than the driver in the Oris.

I'm a basic guy, so I measure the distance that the tweeter is closer to the listening-spot and use that as a general guideline for the delay needed.
Toggling between different settings I then listen for best integration of all units.

Time delay of the cornerhorns is well-known on the Klipsch-forum so I had the benefit of not needing to get into the horn to actually measure the length....:bass:
I have the gear needed to measure all of this, but not the skills yet.
