Need some Avatar help

  1. I had disconnected the crossover wiring on my Avatar 2x12 to use it with my GK 1001RB-II bi-amping feature. Now I need to put it back together. Could someone take a picture of the back of their Avatar jack plate for me? Or maybe a wiring diagram?

    Thanks! :bassist:

    Search previous threads about installing a true crossover. The single capacitor stock setup offers virtually no protection for the tweeter and the sound can be vastly improved upon with the installation of a real 4th order crossover. No offense intended towards Dave, but he really should be ashamed for using what he does in there.
     
  7. Would this work, Bill?

    Parts Express 3.5 kHz 2nd order crossover:

    OK...the capacitor (the yellow thing) connects between the terminal that connects to the tip of the input plug and the terminal of the L-pad (tweeter level control). The other side of the L-Pad connects to the negative side (sleeve) of the input jack.

    The tweeter connects between the middle terminal of the L-Pad and the negative side (the one with no capacitor connection).

    The woofers just connect across the input jack (+ to tip, - to sleeve).

    Hopefully that's clear as mud :D
