Default Building Zaph B3S Filter

Greetings all! I am a complete noob to building crossovers and now I have all the components to build the filter per Zaphs design. The filter is confusing me however. In this diagram is every component just wired in series? Or are the resistors and inductors parallel?

Hi,

L1 and R2 are in parallel, C3, L4 and R5 are in
parallel, both are wired in series with the driver.

(As per the diagram, not much to confuse.)

rgds, sreten.
