  • Help with crossover for the Armadillo Center Channel

    Hello All,
    I just purchased the parts for the armadillo center channel that I'll be upgrading to (from Paul C's overnight sensation center channel). However, I'm a bit confused as to how exactly to run the wires from the receiver / inputs to the speakers. I'm including my horrendous sketch / mockup and could use some yay or nay on how it should go.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

      The woofer wiring shown is wrong. I can't follow the rest.

        (-) input from the receiver is ground, yes? I used green for the wire color.
        (+) input from the receiver i used red for the wire color.

        a wire from GROUND goes to each (-) terminal of the speakers?
        a wire to the positive terminal comes off of each part where the speaker label is?

        Here is the original images and thread:

          That all looks pretty feasible, except I don't get your woofer wiring.
          From the RCL juncture, run a wire to the 1st woofs "+" term, then run a single wire from W1's neg term to W2's pos term, lastly from W2's neg term back to your com grnd.

          These woofs are in series; I think you've drawn them in parallel (and out of phase w/ea. other).

            Okay, that sounds better. Thank you Chris.

              Would this be correct?

                according to bolland83 and Mark65 (the designers), "Yes, indeed, mid is reverse polarity."
