    Default Using mw6503 and peerless tweeter, Which crossover?

    Hi all. Its been a while since I've visited. I'm glad to be back.

    I have 2 mw6503's and a peerless tweeter....I currently have 7b's with peerless as left and right channel and I'm thinking of building a center channel with the 2 mw6503's and the peerless to complement the 7b's. The crossovers in mind or the ones used in the 10's. Polk has 2 different crossovers, one is for 10b and the other for 10 series 2. I was wondering whch would be best for me mw6503's as a center channel?

    M10B BE1000-A $46.40 ?
    M10 SER 2 BE1000-B $49.60 ?

    Now the mw6503 was used in both the 10B and the series 2, but the peerless wasnt. So my question again is with both the mw6503 and the peerless which would be best?

    Thanks

    I'm sorry maybe I should have posted this in the DIY section, but you guys are so good with the vintage equipment.

    Jake,

    Use the crossover that was designed to play with the Peerless tweeter. This will be you most critical timbre match. Sounds like a cool project. Are you going to use a passive radiator in you custom center? Good luck and let us how how it sounds.

    Thanks Carl

    No.This center channel is designed without the low end of a PR. In stead a tuned port will be used. The problem I have is that I cannot find an original Monitor 10 crossover that was used with the peerless. So my other option is to purchase a new one from polk. My guess (or my hope, I should say) is that the crossovers did not change much between the series. The crossover points should be pretty close. So with no luck finding the excact xover, I was hoping from the 2 choices Polk offers, someone would know the best guess.

    Im hoping (if I get the encloser right) that the tember match would be closer than anything out there on the market. The trickiest part is going to be the tuning port. I think I will build different lengths and try them out and see which comes closest to the 7b's. I might not need a port at all. But we will see.
