Css500/5000 Cornscala crossovers

Recommended Posts

Hope to get some help to finish hooking up these crossovers.

I am not sure where to hook up the terminal cup wires. There is two places.

One says LF and other days RF.

Does it matter which ?

This is just the standard type B Cornscala.

Any explanation or help would be appreciated.

 

I did not want to bother the Crites Family now. Due to Bob's passing.

Thank you in advance.

Craig

Hey, welcome to the forum

 

There should be a pair of terminals labelled INPUT 

 

Maybe post a picture?

Terminal cup wires to LF INPUT

 

You will need jumpers to HF INPUT if they are not already there.

 

Bob has engineered the ability to bi-amp with his crossovers.

Jumpers from HF to where?

Sorry this might take me a bit to sink in.

Both LF an HF had nothing hooked up. Except on the top .

Am at work now  so no pictures

I did hook up to the LF from terminal cup.

And HF is not used.

You know how some speakers have two pairs of terminals with the removable shiny gold metal jumper strips from red to red and black to black?

 

That is what is going on here.

 

Without a wire from each LF INPUT to each HF INPUT you will only get sound from the woofer.

From your picture I now see the jumper wires on top side of LF going to the bottom part of HF.

This is what I have to do then?

Thanks for hanging in there with me so far.

I was exactly where you are a couple years ago, lol

 

Had to fabricate my own jumpers for a crossover I got for a song on eBay.

Yup see your new picture, then what l said in my last post. Is right then?

Wonder why no jumpers came with crossovers. No biggie I can make some then, if I am on track here.

Ya I never done any of the big amp stuff.

When you can, please post a picture of your crossovers.

 

But yes, you are right from your last post. If your crossovers have HF AND LF INPUTS they both need the juice.

I made the jumpers for one of the crossovers. @Geoff wanted me to post a picture when done.

But the noob I am, I can not figure out how to post.

Any pointers folks?  Please

Thank you in advance.

After looking some more I see my picture is too big. It's like 2.40MB

Gonna be awhile before I can get help to make it to 2MB or smaller.
