Amazing crossover question

Post by an-eagalach » Fri Dec 07, 2007 12:55 am

I had mentioned in another thread that I'm Frankensteining a pair of Carver Amazings with component parts from different sellers. The guy who is selling me the four 30-inch ribbons has a pair of crossovers from a pair of Platinum Mark IV's. Here is a pic:

I'm going to biamp these, that's a given, but I really don't know what I'm looking at here. I see level controls for bass, mid and treble, but can anybody look at these and tell if biamping on these is an option?

Many thanks!

The original Plat's came with 2 sets of binding posts, so you can bi-wire or bi-amp with them, The Plat Mk IV came with only one set, so no bi-wiring or bi-amping with those. The ones in the picture are the latter version, no bi-wire or bi-amping.

A doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

I've been e-mailing the seller back and forth a lot, and told him what I want to do with my two amps. He says the crossovers can be adapted. He'll do what he can with them on his end, and then will send them with all the appropriate wiring instructions and other details. Soooooo, I guess I'll give it a shot.

Back to Woodshop 101 for me, I'm going to build the cabinets myself. (Can't find them for sale locally, and too expensive to buy elsewhere and have them shipped.) My wife just bought an oak entertainment center, so it looks like oak Amazings. I prefer cherry or walnut, but she likes the lighter woods. Oh well, peace in the home is paramount.

Yep. The seller is in Montreal. The Audiogon posting was just for the ribbons, but while we were negotiating that, he mentioned that he had the Plat MK IV Xovers.
