  • Can I connect all these wires together?

    First crossover project I am soldering together. On the woofer circuit when there are multiple series connections, can I solder all the + and - together as I have shown in green, or must they be one after the other as shown in original in black? Meaning can I solder the + end of the Inductor, capacitor, and resistor and the two + from both woofers all together? And same same on the - end? Thank you.

      Great. Because I already soldered it together like that and after I did I thought....Hmmmm....Thank you.

        Absolute disaster!!! It will never work! Just kidding. Schematics are drawn that way for clarity and neatness.

          That's what I was thinking. I just was not absolutely sure the upstream capacitor did not affect the downstream capacitor and resistor.

            No, not at audio. At radio frequencies the length of connections and position of parts can matter quite a bit.

              We are all only effected by that which we allow ourselves to remain in contact with . . . stay away from negativity and you can remain positive, dude.

              Keep us posted of your endeavor.

              Best!

                Not to be a horse's patootie, but all those connections (technically) are "parallel" cnx.
                The woofer pair are "in parallel", and the Zobel (like thingy) is in parallel w/the woofers, as is the (shunt = "to ground") cap (3.4uF).
                The 3.7ohm resistor and the 2.7uF cap are "in series" w/the tweeter (AND w/ each other).

                  Ah... Gotcha. My apologies.
