Hi, I'm new to this, so I would like to thank everybody for your hospitality and patience! I have jbl 2220b(16ohm) woofers, 2461 drivers and 2345 horns without a crossover. Is the 3110 the right crossover to use with that combination? My second question, if I used two 2220b(16 ohm) woofers and wired them parrallel in each cab to gain a little more bass would the 3110A be the crossover to use? Or are there any other options for more bass? Thanks for all your help!

Regards,
Allan

Hi Allan, the old grey painted 3110 xover was used with the 2220B. It was rated with a 12 to 16 ohm for the low freq. and 16 ohm for high freq. The 2461 CD has a phenolic dia. and goes out to a little over 10KHZ. The 2220B woofer is not designed to be used for the lowest octave 20-40HZ. Best use 45-50HZ. Using 2 of them in a very big box will get you 3db more eff. and maybe 3 hz lower due to mutual coupling. The 3110A would work for this. If you like some more high freqs add a 2405 or 2404 to the mix, but you will need a 3105 or 3106 xover. Also check the libary tab for more info. Hope this helps and good luck
