klf-c7 crossover build

Recommended Posts

Just doing a mock up of a new xover for a klf-c7. Not sure how how much room is available in the box just yet, will pull a driver to give it a look-see.

BTW I uploaded the schematic for both the klf-c7 (.pdf) and Academy back up as it seems to have disappeared.

Installed the new xover into the box and what a difference! Much more controlled, clearer, less muddy and more precise. The oem xover had been upgrades with new electrolytic and Solen caps when I first got this klf-c7 but this thing is a night and day difference. Sounding bigger also comes to mind. I am a believer that going beyond the Dayton/Solen caps to the Audyn Plus caps makes a very noticeable difference. Looking forward to putting the klf-30 xovers in

Up to now I have stayed with the oem tweeter diaphragm but now thinking about swapping it out with Crites TI version. The klf-30 mains have them so it got me think about the center channel. Has anyone done this having a negative out come?

Did you notice a difference in sound when you rebuilt these?  BTW, they look great.

CECAA850 when the OEM xo got re capped with Solen & new NPE's it was like most, it sounded like a blanket was removed. Then when the scratch built xo went in it was like listening through a doorway and then actual walking into the room.

 

And thanks for the kind words.

Is the KLF-C7 crossover the same as the Academy?  if not, where is the C7 schematic?
