    In the grand scheme, orienting the wires makes no difference as you discovered when you said it might be prudent to rotate the driver occasionally. I rotate them 180 degrees because I am reversing...

    Thanks all. It was a nebulous question to begin with. The 2446h/2380 combo showed up locally (which NEVER happens). A passing justification to get them prompted the question, but I am done collecting.

    2446h on 2380 vs 2425/6 on 2344

    Which has technically better performance crossed at approx. 1000Hz?

    I am almost completely sure there will be no improvement as these are well-balanced as is. I have been re-thinking this since last night.

    I am halfway through making up (freshening) the crossovers for my L5s. I doing so, and after looking at the specs, it seems the L7 cross the 12 at 180Hz and the L5 at 170Hz from the 708G.

    To be honest, I really want the L3s for experimentation. And the extra 708Gs and tweeters. I am fully sated with what I have now. Wellll, I might want to build a passive M2, but a lot has to be sold...

    After re-capping the L7s, they seem to sound better (auditory memory and all) but I got them to play nice, even in a small room. Passive Bi-amping did it.

    I can bring in the bass (12") to the...

    That is pretty sporty cutting down L250s, but then I am considering the same with L7s. My guilt has been dialed down.

    My speakers, my rules, I get it. Your 250s look like they belong that way.

    So sad. I looked forward to his posts and can still, in my mind, see a guy plying the streets on a bike loaded down with his latest finds. Via con Dios.

    Got one of the new crossovers in last night (L7). What a GREAT sounding speaker! Big sound, accurate...a giant studio monitor. They do sound that good. All new caps and resistors. Recycled the coils....

    This is a slow slog. I got all new parts for the HF crossovers and assembled one. Turns out I'm out of 1/4" wood stock, so off to pay through the nose for that tomorrow. Once that's here, I'll test...

    All good so far, except

    I was right, no sound from the 035TiAs. I tried them on the bench (w/ blocking cap) and they both work, but not in the intended circuit. I ordered new caps and resistors for the HF leg. It's (maybe)...

    Additional question, please

    I have the L7s set up and would like to know the "normal" position of the jumper on the LF crossover...the left or the middle? TIA.

    So what happens today?

    Marketplace (FB) and CL (same seller) listing for L7. I had to go look, right? I brought a class D amp and connected my phone. Sounded great in open space (garage) so we settled then and there. $200...

    L7 Break up by John W
