Yep, Genelect s45ya is active speaker: ns1000m with Genelec s30 triamp amplifiers with modified crossover. I've got the schematics but not exact values for the s45ya crossover. I have the units here and someday maybe dissect them to measure components. However, one might be better with some DSP xovers as many have suggested. Attachments show s30 crossover.

George,

Why going through all the fuss of a separate device?
When biamping you can provide the bass amp with a 2nd order low pass passive filter at the input (at line level); it needs a capacitor and a choke.
The same (but then high pass of course) for the F5 amplifier which has 100k input impedance; you could make that input resistor a good quality multi turn one to set the balance with the bass.
2nd order will do (the speaker's filter is also 2nd order).
In my opinion this is preferable over a separate device with all associated electronics, cables a.s.o., also sound wise.

I totally agree with pieter.
The solution that you are contemplating will introduce more problems than what that route will offer in sonic benefit.

This is a very long thread and much of is is heated or off-topic. I might have missed this, and if so, apologies, but:

Does anyone have information for rebuilding NS1000 crossovers using quality contemporary replacement parts? Maybe a parts list and some documentation? I dont' want to 'enhance' the devices, just replace old parts with high-quality replacements.

Look here for a broad example of what should be done to upgrade DIY in another speaker. Post your questions and pictures for more detailed information.

I just obtained a pair of NS-1000M for $500 that my friend a master cabinet / furniture refinisher, who works in the homes of multi-millionaires refinishing scratches in their mega-buck tables etc. Is going to completely sand down and refinish in the color Oxblood with a high gloss cover, as a favor for me.

I compared these NS-1000M directly against my Fostex FE208ES-R drivers with Fostex T-900a tweeters in Sachiko double-back-loaded horns and to say I was amazed at how good the NS-1000M sounded, would be an understatement! I was so impressed want to first rebuild the XO with today's high-quality components and if I like what I hear as much as I believe I will, I'll purchase a second pair of NS-1000M and stack & invert them on top of the first pair! So it will be W-M-T T-M-W on each side! Has anyone tried this yet? If so, what were the pros and cons of doing this sonically?

I'm listening to: For The Moment by Bob Mintzer Big Band

Hi Etnier-

For a more standard crossover upgrade- see my post #201 and read on from there. The 6 3.5uF caps (C3) are not electrolytics, as poster morksbeanbag points out in post #209. So you could leave those. I chose to replace them anyway.

For the NS-1000 schematic- see post #196.

Hope this helps. They are great speakers.

-Kent
