Platinum Crossovers

Just noticed a set of platinum crossovers on ebay item 150513102537. THe spare set I bought were converted to platinum from originals. My crossovers sure look different to the ones being offered on ebay. Was there a difference in crossovers between the regular platinums and the converted ones. Were they different to accomodate the honeycomb woofers or what. I'll include a shot of the crossovers in mine. Art

Re: Platinum Crossovers

These are the crossovers on ebay. Are they actual Platinum crossovers or not

Re: Platinum Crossovers

no these are for the amazings...
2 30" ribbons and the flat honey comb woofers.......
these parts match up to the parts build sheet of the amazings,this info is from the amazing loudspeaker service manual
the part that gives this away is the resistor R6 45ohm 20w with the heat sink attached to it....
and the fact that these look like the set I gutted to get the notch filters parts(inductor coils and resistors)

Re: Platinum Crossovers

You're right, I just checked pictures of my main set which are originals and they are the same.Wouldn't be a bad idea to have a spare set of those too. The only thing would be there is no way of telling if they are in good working order or not. guess it would be buyer beware. I may write the seller and tell him the difference. Art
