View Full Version : Hi-Vi Jr. question for hongrn

In your crossover schematic you show under woofer impedance Req.= 6.2ohm and Ce=9.1uf.
Did you combine two resistors (such as 4.7 and 1.5) to come to 6.2 ohms or use some other resistor not in the Pe catalog?
If you combined 2, are these wired in series or parallel, or does that matter?
Sorry for the simple questions, but I am not to swift at crossover terminology yet.

I wired them in parallel to get the correct value. Look up this page also to get an idea about crossovers.

If you hook them up in parallel what value resistors did you use? It is my understanding that resistors hooked up in parallel results in a resistance smaller than either of the two resistors. But if you hook them up in series you add each resistor's value. (4.7ohm + 1.5ohm=6.2ohm). Correct me if I am wrong, please. Thank You

Sorry I gave you the WRONG answer. Add resistors in SERIES to increase value. Or just use a 6 ohm resistor. Close enough.
