Hi Bigspeaker.

Of course it means a lot. Thank you very much

Do you by any chance know values of coils in this xover ?

yes the open air one should read in the range of .9 ohm the other .5 the coils will never give problems the resistors there should be 2 lots of 3 10 ohm in parallel this = 3.3 ohms 3 watt i recommend changing both to a 3.3 ohm 3 watt non inductive cement type etc in the mide circuit i was unsure of a resistor to ground of the center should be change to the type as above they used 2 x 10 ohm in parallel witch = 5 ohms if this is right you can use a 5.6 ohm 5 watt can you confirm this with your crossover please mine was a bit brown the other resistor that was also a bit brown that i measured i was a little bit unsure of was in the tweeter circuit off the center of the L Pad to ground i think it was 19/20 ohms confused:this is the only part of the whole crossover thats doing my head in changing all the resistors to the non inductive cement type makes the crossover pass the signal better without distortion etc i also recommend changing all the 4.7uf and the 3.3 uf with polly type caps the oil caps are the mainly for resistance correction so there fine to leave as is so if you could help me with this resistor i would appreciated thanks ian i will take photos of before and after

hi again not sure if you got my last message something went wrong one air choke will read .9 of a ohm the other will read .5 or thereabouts etc they should not give trouble the big choke with the ferro rod is well made the polly switch is trouble and will need to be changed the 2 lots of 10 ohm resistors it is better to change them with 3.3 ohm cement type non inductive this is for the mid and tweeter circuit you may be able to help me i was a bit unsure about the resistor value in the tweeter circuit off the center of the LPad to ground it was a bit brown i worked it out to be 19/20 ohms and the other in the mid circuit off the center of the LPad to ground 2 10 ohm resistors in parallel =5 ohms thanks sorry for the 2nd reply if you got the first
