    So I finally found time today to disassemble the bad crossover and test components....bad resistor! Here are two pics, one of the reading for the resistor on the good crossover and the bad one. Thank you all for the input and direction, much appreciated. Called Parts-express and have a replacement on the way. Can't wait to finish this up and hear these speakers!

          Just finished reassembly on the crossover, testing tomorrow. (Fingers crossed!) All goes well, on to paint and wrap then final assembly! Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

            Careful with the heat when soldering to resistors (or any component) resistors can "burn out" it hit with a lot of heat for any extended amount of time.

              You can prevent that by clipping an alligator clip or something similar past the soldering point as a heat sink.

                Thanks for the tips guys. I clamped on a pair of wire cutters (grippy plier end) as a heat sink when soldering everything up. Tested this morning and it works! Had a minor freakout as I used a new (to me) Denon stereo receiver and didn't realize the "b" speakers were selected and thought I really FUBAR'd it this time. One push of a button and success!
                Painted the back and bottom of the cabinets so tomorrow will do the vinyl wrap and final assembly. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

                  Finished one today! Painted bottom and back and used the Vvivid xpo mahogany wood grain vinyl for sides, front and top. I really like how it came out. Ran out of vinyl, ordered some today so be able to finish the other one next week when I'm off. Thanks again for all the help! Can't wait to hear these together! Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
