Hi Lindsey,

Should i go for a new digital crossover or stay with accuphase? or should i just go for a fixed frquency passive crossover?

I would defenitely go for a passive crossover towards the Oris horn! For the bass I would suggest active being most flexible. First create the passive crossover for the horns and then fill-in the bass using an active crossover. Perhaps even a DSP based type so that you can tweak it to perfection...

what would be the differences between the active and passive ones then.

The passive one makes it easier for your 2A3... everything below 250Hz will be seen as a very high impedance and this also reduces the noise (50/60Hz + 100/120Hz harmonics) coming from your 2A3 if present.

Leaving more power, more headroom and less noise...

Which drivers do you use in the Oris 200's?
