thanks dave, so a difference in output should be noticed when rotating the L pad.
That is its whole purpose

You mean difference in level? Then the L-Pad is broken or wired incorrectly (assumming the tweeter is fine -- you can just hook up the tweeter & the cap to test that)

ok, have measured resistance at the binding posts and there is nil. So have dismantled tweeter, removed driver checked resistance 7.2 Ohms, tested L pad between terminals 2 and 3 and got a maximum of 8 Ohms down to zero when adjusting on spindle. Between 1 and 3 I get 7.8 Ohms up to 42 Ohms. Between 1 and 2 I get 7.8 Ohms - 42 Ohms. Can someone advise me on the correct wiring.

thanks, that looks like the wiring on the fostex website, however the L pad I have is a monacor AT-62H and shows it as pos from amp - 3, 2 - + on driver, neg on driver to 1 and neg from amp, the opposite of the fostex wiring. I take it the cap goes on the positive side

Cap won't matter, it's an AC circuit.

after checking the resistance between 1 and 2, 2 and 3, 1 and 3, it made sense to follow the daves wiring, which is the same as fostex. wired up one cap and attenuator outside the cabinet and tried it out, can now adjust the volume. Wired both supertweeters in the cabs and now waiting for glue to set. Had to glue the attenuator as the spindle will not protrude through the ball shaped cabinet.
