Default dumb crossover question

I know this will sound dumb but I don't understand how I am supposed to wire up the input for the two 6.5 woofers on the following project. It's the box around the first 1.5 ohm resistor, could someone explain it to me?

thanks

The "box" is not a box and does not concern the woofers but the tweeter. It`s the tweeters notch filter as described in the text. The filter is made of three devices in parallel, the 1,5 Ohm resistor, a 5F capacitor and a 0,15mH inductor.

The woofer circuit starts with the "+ Input" wired to the .41 mh inductor (.45 mh in the parts list). The + Input also feeds the tweeter circuit explained above.

Sorry I mixed up something and my first post has been posted twice.
