    Ok, next question?
    How are you connecting your test crossover components?
    12 inch alligator clip test leads, wire nuts, alligator clips ?

    That's some funky crossover happenings.
    Which song??

    I build my crossovers like I build my LEGO space ships, just stick random pieces in it, until it looks right :o

Mine used to look something like that, then I got tired of searching for a particular value, and got medium size food storage containers and labeled them: RES .5 - 2.0, CAP 1 - 4, etc. Helps my sanity greatly, and I can review the containers to replenish my spares stocks when I make a big PE order.

    My eyes started to cross, and I felt dizzy looking at that woofer crossover. wow - lots of parts! Expect everything to change when you can measure actual FR - sure did for me.

    started a topic Deadhorse Build Thread

    Deadhorse Build Thread

    I've already documented my Test Box build for this speaker HERE so you can flip through that if you want.

    This thread is where I'm going to document my initial crossover designs (with just the parts I have on hand) and later on with measurements and a mostly unlimited budget (right now, I'm willing to throw as much money as I need to to finish these SoB's) for crossover parts.

    Here's what I rigged up today, I've listened to it for a few minutes and it sounds alright.





    None of the parts got hot, the amp got warm (not uncommonly warm), and I had it turned up about as loud as I could.

    Woofer's crossover is right around 3.1kHz BW4 and tweeter's is 4.2kHz BW4 with a [rather] generous BBC dip (not intentional, just happened, at least I admit it)

    I'll be ordering my measuring equipment on the 15th and then I'll start pulling my hair out :D
