    Default Switching back plate and wiring harness between 3.1TL and 2.3TL?

    The title says it all. Would a problem arise from using the wiring (to the crossover) and back plate with binding posts from a 3.1TL and putting into a 2.3TL? The colored wires (i.e red, yellow, blue and white) would all be hooked up the same way. There is no difference between the two, correct? If I switch them out there should be no problems right? Thanks for your help.

    I'm not sure. If you look at the schematic for the 2.3TL's it notes that the low frequency connections (2 and 3) are reversed. I would remove each and trace the wiring.

    I was hoping you would reply Jesse. How do you see them as reversed? I must be missing it, sorry. Could you explain? Thanks Jesse.

    Just noticed in the notes that that it states that pin # 2 & 3 are reversed. But, reversed compared to what? The non TL 2.3?

    There's a little note in the bottom right corner.

    I think the safest thing to do is trace the wiring yourself.

    You are talking about tracing the wires from the binding posts with the colored (red, yellow, black, and white) bands on the wires to how they connect to the connector on the crossover board Jesse?

    Yes, noting where each wire starts and ends.

    Got it. Thanks Jesse.

    Greg

    Also, if I hook it up and I did not trace it correctly (I think it's the same wiring scheme) what's the worst that can happen (that is if the HF and LF binding post wirings are not the same)?

    Traced the wires and they are hooked up exactly the same. I have not actually put a signal through them yet, but it should work fine.
