The spikey waveform happens when square waves go through a series capacitor. It performs the math function known as differentiation. I think your input is the sine wave? So how can it get converted to a square wave? Running it through an op amp with extremely high gain.
You have a lowpass filter at the input then feed almost no high frequencies to the highpass filter.
The highpass filter should be at the input and its output should feed the lowpass filter.
EDIT: Your highpass filter uses extremely high value 47uF capacitors causing its cutoff frequency to be extremely low at about 0.03Hz!
I think you want Butterworth highpass and lowpass filters.
Then instead of wrongly amplifying the highpass opamp, add a resistor to make the capacitor ratios 2:1.
Then instead of attenuating the input and wrongly amplifying the lowpass opamp, add a capacitor to make the capacitor ratios 2:1.
If passive done noise sources, the Rs, would contribute symmetrical to topology, so
no change. Same for S&K done with unity G followers. But if done with VCVS, different
G's, then order would make a difference ? Or am I missing something here ?
