    WTB ---- ALK Crossovers for My La Scalas

    Not sure why the backlash over the post... I didn't contact Dean directly because he is running a business and I didn't want to bother him with the crossovers you are selling that you said Al or Dean built. I am sure Dean would have gladly answered but I didn't want to waste his time. I am not sure why you wouldn't mention all of this info when we were texting. Seems like you already knew the answers... Here is your text you sent: Thomas, these were built by either Al or Dean. I bought them from a friend of a friend in Columbia, mo who never used them. I used them for two days and then got a trade for the ALK extreme slopes and boxed these. Post the photos and Dean/Al/others can better answer your questions than I. At the time these were built, Dayton's and KimberKaps were a solid favorite. Now, just like then, there are way more expensive, and way cheaper parts. These sounded quite clear and nice. The auto former has another tap, but I don't know if it would be attenuators. Dean is the guru. What did I miss?

    I might be missing it but that doesn't look like apples to apples against the pictures I posted. I looked at his site earlier.

    Posting with permission from the seller- Help me figure these out. Can the mids be adjusted on these? Would changing the Dayton caps and the KimberKaps be step one to using these? Does anyone have any insight on the ALK Jr? What would I be missing buying these vs. saving for a new set of crossovers? Thanks for the replies so far!

    and talk about an accurate bass that is musical! I wasn't joking when I said it ruined regular powered subwoofers. Was it established if the OP was using it primarily for music or HT? ( I probably missed it)

    Currently using the CT-120 tweeter. I am going to hook the original Al crossover back up and listen to the difference in the midrange. I am open to suggestions on the tweeter section and the AA configuration.

    That's the one I have. I purchased used but even at $300 and a cheapo used plate amp you'll come out ahead vs the options you've mentioned.

    That's what started this whole thing was hearing his ALK in my La Scalas. He has them back now of course and before I abandoned the Crites I already purchased I thought I would exhaust all options to make them to my liking.

    In an attempt to muddy the water and stick my nose in a conversation I have nothing to gain maxed out. I purchased a tuba sub from a member here and ruined regular subwoofers for myself. 😁 All Horn subs aren't expensive, and some aren't much bigger of a footprint than the PB13 is. That thing is a monster!

    Dropped the wire, replaced the cap. I'm underwhelmed... I think I am just after a different sound than what this combo of crossover / tweeter will offer. Not that there is anything wrong with it and I think it is performing as intended. It didn't do much for the sound that I can really tell. So I am looking at Dean or ALK crossovers. I wish someone close to me had some of Dean's crossovers so I could compare to the ALK crossovers a friend of mine has. Here is the after picture of moving the wire to tap 3.

    Good advice. I've actually done that already. Had the crites A/4500 for around 2 years and lived with the L pads for about 2 months. Deang I went to your facebook page, but it looks like you are taking a break for a while. Still looking at taking some time off, or has something changed?

    Here is the crites crossover I have. No issue dropping it down to tab 3? Should I change the 13uF to 6.8uF as well?

    I installed L pads already and, I'm sure it's in my head, but it took away from the sound. I recently tried a friend's set of the CornScala-Wall crossovers from ALK and was really floored with the sound.
