Do you know when a board of the xover will be available?

The little wall wart transformer on my B4 is a 24v, 20w unit.

Thanks Nelson. I ask because I'm planning on replacing the wall wart with a linear PS.

Hello,

I hope this question does not appear rude because it is not meant to be. These days, digital crossover implementations are marketed to be able to handle driver linearization, time alignment, EQ, phase, and I don't know what else.

With such a list of apparent benefits, what is the appeal of an active crossover like the B4 or XVR-1 over a digital crossover? Do people like the sound of the active crossovers better? Do people not want to digitize an analog signal?

Thanks for any feedback you may offer.

A huge one: no AD/DA conversion. We can use our highend DACs, which need to be only 2 channel, with huge savings and simplicity there.

That's not a B4, but can easily be stuffed for two-way at 6 or 12 dB/oct.

There is an article due on that very shortly, which will be posted at
FIRST WATT

A more flexible piece is expected for the store, but these days I have to
do one thing at a time or nothing gets done....

I am absolutely not in a hurry (I'm waiting for months and my new speakers got delayed for other reasons), just I dont want it to be sold out in a week or so

But I guess you have a huge stock of parts for the kits, right?
