Hi all,

I'm back again to ask a question. I just picked up a pair of LX3-1 crossovers. Not very much out there that I can find. Just wondering what the crossover point is and if they are 8 or 16 ohm? Thanks!

I thought this might be a tough nut to crack. I have read this may have been used in the Minigon? I also have read conflicting statements of the LX3 being 16 ohm and the LX3-1 being 8 ohm and vice versa. Fortunately, there are four small screws that attach the back plate, not pop-rivets. Screws, what a concept! Anyway, there is one small 3mf cap and what looks like a small transformer inside. Of course it has an L-pad. I'm quite sure this would not be even close to a compatible crossover for my recently acquired C56 Dorian's. Any clue as to the crossover point, ohms etc.? Interesting that the yellow foam hasn't deteriorated. Here's a couple if pictures if that helps, thanks.

Thanks Don, I appreciate the link. My navigation skills are obviously lacking.
