Default Kef 105.3 assembling

Dear friends,
I have made a pie, I have gotten off completely the 105.3, doesn't remember anymore now the connections. I thought it was easy to reassemble her, instead I don't understand if the woofers are in phase, if the mid low they go to out phase.
To ear I have climbed on the woofers between them in out phase, the mid low in comparison to the woofers in out phase, so it seems to play well.
Him UNI-Q besides that he has not been gotten off, he has always played with a strong exaltation toward the 3 KHzes with very nasal sound. Now from when I have reversed the phase on the TW it seems to play very well and linear. do I ask you besides, is it possible that in this crossover they are only there condensers electrolytes not polarized? they are not too much cheap? what does it mean LL initials on the condensers from 7 mFs used for UNI-Q? (they seem normal electrolytes not polarized). Help me, SANDOR626 from Italy

The wires to each of the drivers are colour coded. At KEf we always used a consistent code to signify which colours were for tweeter, midrange etc, and also which were positive and negative.
Unfortunately I no longer remember what is what.
Let me know what colours you have and I may possibly remember and be able to help.
Also, the xover is built on a printed circuit board that is attached to the rear panel. The circuit board should be screen printed with the details of the connections.
If you remove the panel you should have the info you need, but this time ta.ke pictures as you dismantle, just in case :-).
Also, I can confirm that all the capacitors are non-polar types.

Andrew

The previous colour code that I posted is from 105.2. I am not sure what colour code was used, in what model/year. So better check one by one.

The colour codes are not the same.
You have a 36 component crossover?! What are you listening to, Kraftwerk?...
