Does anyone have a photo of the LRS Crossovers. I love my LRS's. I know the crossovers can certainly be improved. Haven't taken the sock off yet to see what is in there.
I have had the LRS since summer of last year. I have bypassed all the fuse connections, and the attenuation and wired directly from input to the connectors. I have not removed the wired spades or done anything with the internal wiring yet.
Just wondering is anyone has dug into the crossover yet.
Si=o I have rewired the inside of the connection panel bypassing the fuse and attenuation connections. The positive and negative speaker connections go directly to the internal wiring with factory connectors. There are still the push on connections and the stock speaker bindings. These will be taken care of soon.
If anyone has specs or photos of the internal crossovers that would be great.
First photo is of the speaker connection panel after bypassing the fuse and attenuation. I will post a second one of the before - stock.
After I eliminated 8 connections. Much cleaner of course.
I live on the coast in Oregon and the power goes out very frequently. The speakers have not been damaged and I leave my system on 24/7.
Two way serial crossover. Maggies are a natural for series crossovers because the impedance is very consistent and resistive in nature.
It does complicate adjustment - as the ESR of the capacitor and Resistors effect both components.

From looking at your setup on the Magriser thread, instead of installing Cardas or another fancy connector for your speakers, you might be better off just pushing your speaker wire directly through the backplate of the speaker and make your connection inside, eliminating all connector joints. Just an idea for you.
I am ordering some of these:
Once they arrive I will bypass the whole little black square and the stock speaker terminals and bolt the ribbon directly to the internally wire (which I will upgrade).
Your thinking is right up my alley.
I have done that. Great thinking.
Sound is so much clearer.
and 1st order series?
So they will look something like this:
We need to know the resistance values of each driver - then we can make a guess at the 2 component values.
If the XO point is specified in the User Manual ... we can accurately calculate the component values.
Andyr I understand crossovers. Was just wondering if anyone had torn the sock off and has pics of the crossover. I will have to do this so I can get values etc. I just have too much fun listening to these little guys. Here is a pic of my last homebuilt crossovers for my home-brew speakers using Ribbon and Focal Audio stuff.
And here is the before photo.
