Slope

Technology / Home Audio / Slope: The rate of change that a frequency response curve displays, normally stated in db per Octave. Among other things, Slope can relate to Roll Off rates in Crossover action, low-end roll off and roll on rates and other forms of increasing or decreasing response.

Upslope Effect

Science / Weather / Upslope Effect: The cooling of an air flow as it ascends a hill or mountain slope. If there is enough moisture and the air is stable, stratiform clouds and precipitation may form. If the air is unstable, there might MORE

Upslope Fog

Science / Weather / Upslope Fog: Fog that forms when warm, moist surface air is forced up a slope by the wind. It is adiabatically cooled to below its initial dew point, which means the air cools by expansion as it rises. It forms be MORE

Crossover Slope

Technology / Home Audio / Crossover Slope: The rate at which a crossover circuit attenuates the blocked frequencies. Slope is expressed as decibels per octave. A 6db per octave crossover reduces signal amplitude level by 6db in every octave st MORE
