Don'tSo, I disconnected one end of the 13R resistor, and the midrange definitely came back, but it came back with a vengeance. Crossover beginners question: can you safely swap components in and out of a crossover while playing music? So, for example, could I A/B test by connecting and disconnecting the 13R resistor in and out of circuit without doing damage to a costly and original 806 diaphragm?
Interesting. Was the basis of this the same series crossover from post #2 in this thread?I’ve got the 419-8b bi flex in a variation of the je labs 2 way 32b horn with 802-8g.
did a few variations of crossover. The series crossover works really well. I crossed over in the 2.8-2.9k range. Basically, there was a natural dip just below that in the bi flex, so that seemed a good spot. These drivers are 8 ohm, so I think the crossover is .27 mh with 8-10 mf, can’t remember exactly. Then the l pad to the horn with a 2 mf across the series section for some high frequency boost.
@EarlK - does the exact placement of the 20R resistor in series with the Lpad matter? For example, could I wire terminal 2 of the Lpad to the point where the two 8R resistors connect and then wire the 20R resistor from terminal 1 to ground? Reason I ask is because it would make for a much simpler re-wire based on how I currently have things soldered up.
Nice graph in my opinion. Is this with the woofer at the bottom of the cabinet and horn on top?
