Re: I'm toying around with a new idea.

All this "complexity" sure makes me appreciate EPI's simple x-over: one 10 uf filter cap for the 1" dome tweeter! (plus voice coils in woofers and tweeters designed to work with this cap value so that they naturally both x-over at 1800 Hz). But to each his own...+/-'s to both approaches I'm sure.

Real reason for post: (under heading of no stupid questions :lol: ): what does YMMV 'net shorthand stand for?? Thanks!

I wonder if it's possible thats a misprint or something? That would force using or building special cables. Using a conventional cable, you'd wind up with the shield carrying the hot signal.

In 30 years of dealing with professional equipment every day, I've never run across pin 1 used that way. In the pro sound world, pin 2 is hot and it's been common in the broadcast world for pin 3 to be the hot. But that really doesn't make too much difference in most cases. And it has seemed to begin to be more common for pin 2. But this pin 1 thing just doesn't compute....


Well, the amp manuals show it correctly, but the TG-IV manual shows it opposite. I think someone screwed up the manual...
