    JBL 3145 stock crossover.- A pictorial

    The following posts are a pictorial of the JBL 3145 crossover network.

    Owners of the JBL professional series 4345 monitor may find this information useful should your 4345's require repair, testing or upgrade.

    The stock 3145 networks were kindly loaned by Ducatista47 who generously sponsored the opportunity for a detailed examination of these networks.

    Description

    This network is the stock crossover network of the JBL professional series 4345 monitor

    The assembly consists of a rear mounting plate which supports two stacked PCBs that hold the crossover elements.

    The mounting plate is made of a moulded ABS type plastic material. Four terminal posts are located centrally on the mounting plate with a two position multi-pole rotary switch to select either internal passive or external crossover mode for bi amplification. Two iron core chokes are mounted at one end of the rear plate.

    A color coded wire loom with crimped spade terminations connects the terminal posts and the biamp switch. Color coded wire links with crimped spade terminations connect the two iron core chokes to the main PCB.

    The main PCB is supported by moulded stand-offs on the rear plate with long self tapping screws. The smaller PCB sits atop the main PCB and is attached with clip on PCB stand-offs. Thin rubber washers and a rubber insert pad prevent vibration of the smaller PCB.

    The main PCB supports the centrally located rotary switch which is soldered directly to the PCB and the low and the mid frequency filter elements.

    A color coded wire link with crimped spade terminations from the main PCB connects to the smaller PCB which supports the high and ultra high frequency filters.

    Identification of the crossover filters elements is indicated by component codes on the PCBS.

    A series of alpha numeric coded spade terminals on both PCBs connects color coded wire looms and links to the terminal posts, the smaller PCB, the rotary switch, the chokes, the L-pads and loudspeaker drivers.

    The wire loom is arranged in three stages for signal from the respective filters to be sent to the L-pads which is then looped back to the PCBs from the L-pads and then to the drivers. Polarity inversion of the signal for mid, high and ultra high frequency drivers is arranged on the PCBs in the final stage of the wire loom to the drivers.

    E5 - uhf filter output to L pad 1 (ground)
    E6 - negative uhf filter ouput to driver positive input

    Internal passive / external biamp two postion multi pole rotary switch.

    The two postion rotary switch can be set for internal or external biamp mode. The switch functions to route positive and negative polarity of the woofer input via the passive or external loudspeaker input terminal. In the external postion the woofer filter elements are bypassed.

    In addition the rotary switch functions to byass the high pass midrange filter elements in the external position.

    To be continued.

    When available an image of with the appropriate camera angle will indicate the color coded wires from the wiring loom and the designated alpha numeric codes of the spade terminals.

    I nearly forgot about this thread..oops...

    To finalise this particular thread I post here the color coded wire looms and the designated alpha numeric codes of the spade terminals for the 3145 network.

    No doubt anyone considering changing out the stock network or any particular reason will find these a useful reference if not now at a later date.

    A special thanks to Clark (Ducatista47) the trustee of this thread who graciously sponsored the shipping of the networks and many of the images seen in this thread.

    Thanks.

    Clark made it happen so all the credit belongs to Clark.

    I am so way way off the main drag and out of the action down here I rarely get to see anything like this much.

    We both had a lot a fun. There were lots of laugh's and it was quite insightful.

    The whole thing about it of course is it here out in the open for everyone to check out and hopefully will answer a lot of questions.

    Be sure to keep an eye out for Clark's own diy project which I had a small hand in:

    Two Approaches - Loaded and Cocked.

    I doubt it.

    Suggest you search for 4344mk11 schematic and consider the diy route
