    Ok kids...the newest version of the 12+6 and 1212+6 are up along with the new 12+6cube! You know the drill: 3D Google SketchUp models, .xls CutLists and .jpg CutListLayouts are on my page (link from my sig or the fEarful wiki). As always, make sure the dates on the plans you're using match the dates on the models, etc.

    Have fun!

    Has anyone used a WWU with a fEarful? I have one; just wondering how the combo would sound.

    Based on GB's earlier contributions, I just purchased a Carvin LS1503. I played a GK RB-400 through it today, for about three hours- sounded great. I can only wonder, at this point, how a true fEarful would sound with a good amp. I'm sold on the design- it slams.

    Thanks for that.... and yep I looked at how you did yours but mine's got a twist as I am wondering how to handle the 3 way element of my xover - I think what I drew will work but I aint sure - so that's why I'm asking.

    Looking forward to your updates.

    Hey guys:

    Just in the process of wiring up me crossovers and noticed a discrepancy in the Wiki regarding the hi pass filter for the ASD 1001 on the JBL waveguide.

    The diagram shows C2 as being 2.0 mfd, but the parts list below it specs a value of 1.2 mfd.

    Anyone know which is correct?

    EDIT: Just clicked on the link to the 1.2 mfd cap in the WIKI and it actually links to a 2.0 mfd cap at Erse, so I'm guessing 2.0 mfd is the correct value, which means I've ordered the wrong part.:meh:

    THERE ARE NO STUPID QUESTIONS KYLE... ONLY STUPID PEOPLE.

    ;)

    Look again I think your mixing mH and uF

    ¤ Hi-pass parts:

    L2 = 0.10mH Erse Perfect Lay 18AWG .121Ω 300w Air Core Inductor - $2.51

    C1 = 1.0μF Erse PulseX 250v Metallized Polypropylene Film Capacitor - $1.01 - It might be wise to upgrade to a 400v cap if using with a high-powered amp driving two 3015LF woofers.

    L1 = 0.12mH Erse Perfect Lay 18AWG .151Ω 300w Air Core Inductor - $2.71 - .15mH also a possibility for higher-power systems.

    C2 = 2.0μF Erse PulseX 250v Metallized Polypropylene Film Capacitor - $1.35

    P1 = Erse 8Ω 100w L-Pad - $9.86

    At least that's how I read it

    OK, thought I was nuts there for a minute, but it looks as though the WIKI has already been edited to correct the discrepancy. Cool.

    Woot!

    Apparently I read it wrong and did it right... or read it right and ignored the other part... or something like that- anyway i got a 2uF cap in the C2. Dats right init?

    Thanks for the heads up anyway DD - good catch.

    I finally got all the way done with my 12/6 1. I have had it done for a few months but have changed both the low/mid crossover and the high pass and changed the original tweeter I had to the Dayton waveguide. I'll post pictures in the Wiki soon. Here's a shot of the front.
