    Default Monitor 10b crossover question (i know its been beat to a pulp)

    Hey everyone,

    just wondered if I could find some pics of the crossover done so i can plan my attack...My question is about which order to put the new components on the board since these are much bigger...example being the polyswitch swap, the resistor will need to be in an odd angle...probably standing on end and leaning away...

    parts are typical that have been talked about before

    Clarity PX's in the highs
    Solen in the lows
    mills resistors

    Thanks,

    BK

    Here ya go. Mount the resistors to the bottom of the circuit board to clear room for the caps.

    the reason I think they were mine was 1. green tape and 2. all Clarity caps. Listening to them right now. Sigh.... they do sound good. Have the 5a's I did with the Sonicaps and Daytons sitting on top and they sound pretty darn good also. Don't have the low end and the high end is brighter than the 10's but they have there place. About done in the office and the 12's are warmed up downstairs in the livingroom. Those sound pretty darn good also. Cheers!!

    Bruce, was just busting your chops. I posted because he was using Clarity which are huge compared to Sonicaps or Solen and Dayton. He'll either have to build a riser board, or try and stack. Stacking won't be pretty.

    I use 16 gauge NTE tinned copper hookup wire most of the time. For the big SRSs I'll use 14 gauge.
