attenuation chart for Crites 3654 autotransformer?

Recommended Posts

Khorns with Crites Type A crossovers. 

I want to quiet down my mids a little, Currently wired to 0 and 4 on 3654 transformers,  which taps do I move to?

 

Thanks

there is more to it than moving the tap...

Easier to just use an L-pad.  Variably adjustable and you don't need to buy different caps to try different attenuation.

0 and 3.

Have l-pads already, just thought a tap change could get the l-pad to be "less involved" if the transformer did the work. 

 

Jimjimbo, saw your post on enclosing the backs. Don't know which thread you're looking for, but I enclosed mine, used 1/2 in birch plywood. Works fine to my old ears. I did add 2x2 support on the inside. 6 screws per panel and some RTV. Easy to remove later if I ever move to a place with Proper corners. My khorns are mutts anyway, Crites and Volti.

JRS94, if you move the autoformer tap to 3, you will also have to replace the 13uF cap with a 6.8uF, in order to keep the same midrange crossover frequency.
