Note from similar setup (375 instead of LE85) was:

N7000:
1: green
2: black
3: black
4: red

LX5:
1: green
2: black
3: red
4: black

Just colour codes, but hope it will be of help.

IME these crossovers will not do the speakers / drivers justice. If original at ~45 years these crossovers will have mechanical issues, capacitors in need of change and also these are generic crossovers that really doesn't fit the drivers/enclosures well.

My father went fully active with a DBX PA2 crossover and Parasound amplifiers. An absolutely recommendable route.
