Making speakers sound tonally similar with an equalizer


Can two different speakers be made to sound similar by adjusting their frequency response to mirror each other with an equalizer? I'm sure it's not as simple as that but would it be possible. 

Can one, for example, reproduce a harbeth like sound by doing that?

Just curious.

Only to an extent.
One cannot overcome the passive crossover, so one can only work around that.

If it s was bi-amped or tri-amped, then it is easier to get to where you describe.

Issues like phase non-linearity cannot be fixed with an EQ- it usually makes it worse!   Measuring and using a parametric to compensate can help response within the room but it cannot fix room problems which are usually at the heart of most of poor performance issues.

Bad idea.  You won’t get there, and inserting another piece of equipment in the signal chain is also not optimal.  Save up for the real thing rather than throwing $$$ down the drain on an equalizer.  My $0.02 FWIW.
