phasing ????

Post by mbskeam » Mon May 24, 2010 8:08 pm

so when you undo the woofers from the built in cross overs,
and use an active crossover.
do you have to flip the +/- of the ribbons?
or does it still hook up the same to the speaker terminals?
I have my al3 like this now. also I am going to add a 2nd hookup on the silvers I got so that all the subs use the active crossover and the ribbons use the built in board type.
going this way because, of the built in notch at 6000hz or so.
or does the flipping of the ribbon phase only come into play when you remove the factory crossover completely?

In the configuration you intend to use, just keep the phase with positive to positive/negative to negative.
