What will be the effect of changing the order of the cross over filters on the sound coming from each speaker in my audio system?

    \$\begingroup\$ The order? Do you mean the normal usage of order when applied to filters i.e. 1st order, 2nd order etc.. Or, do you mean which filter comes first in a cascaded chain of filters? Amend your question to clarify this detail AND show technical details about the filter frequencies. Don't add details as comments. \$\endgroup\$ – Andy aka May 29 '19 at 10:11

    \$\begingroup\$ What are "the filters"? Are you talking about crossover filters in the loudspeakers? I suggest you read up on filters and learn what the order of a filter means. How that will affect the sound is difficult to say, part of the "sound" of a speaker is determined by the crossover filter. Use the Edit function to add this information to this question. \$\endgroup\$ – Bimpelrekkie May 29 '19 at 10:12

Big difference. You cannot put a LPF after a HPF nor the reverse. These need to be parallel from source. Cascading filters also depends on the source impedance Z(f) and load R.
