    Default 11T crossover question

    I'm putting new PolySwitches in my 11T (Thanks Ken!). On one crossover I noticed one of the big rectangular resistors has a huge brown spot in the center, like it got very hot. Is this normal, or does it surely need to be replaced. Maybe this is why the switch was opening.

    I can't check it with an ohm-meter unless I remove it, since it is parallel with an inductor, I think.

    That one is cooked, time to replace.

    You might consider replacing it with a Mills resistor. Good luck and have fun.:)

    That would be ideal, but then if it were me I'd replace them all (in both speakers) with Mills and then why stop there. Rebuild the whole x-over. It seems by the pic you have to remove the caps on top anyways to get at the resistor
