jhoak Posted July 6, 2010 Share Posted July 6, 2010 Will this work? Equipment list part 1 - electronics 1) Onkyo P-304RS 2-channel preamp 2) Onkyo P-506RS 2-channel amplifier 3) A pair of Dynaco MK4 monoblock amplifiers 4) Behringer CX231 crossover 5) Behringer DSP-1124P (room equalization) 6) Behringer EP2500 amplifier 7) The usual sources Equipment list part 2 - speakers 1) Klipsch La Scalas (highly modified) 2) IB SUbwoofer (2-15" AE drivers) Connections: All of the sources are connected to the preamp by way of the appropriate cabling The outputs of the preamp to the preamp to the inputs of the crossover The low frequency outputs of the crossover to the inputs of the Onkyo amplifier The high frequency outputs of the crossover to the inputs of the Dynaco monoblocks The outputs of the Onkyo amp to the woofers of the La Scalas The outputs of the Dynaco monoblocks to the crossover input on the La Scalas The subwoofer output on the crossover to the input on the BFD The output of the BFD to the input on the Behringer amp The output of the Behringer amp to the IB subwoofer drivers Additional available equipment: 1) Onkyo M-282 2 channel amplifier 2) Grant Fidelity Tube DAC-09 set to preamp mode Assumptions: The Behringer crossover is set to stereo 2-way mode Questions: Does it matter to the crossovers in the La Scalas (ALK-Jrs) that there isn't a woofer hooked to them? Would an additional crossover with both set to mono 3-way be a lot better? Is this a complete waste of time and resources considering the age related limitations of my hearing? Is there a better way to hook this stuff up that I haven't thought of? Enlighten me What am I missing here? Please keep in mind that this is nothing more than an experiment. I'm 50+ and single so I have a great deal of time on my hands. I don't however have a great deal of discresionary cash to sink in to an experiment. I can spring for another one of the crossovers but not a lot more than that. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
