ALIII crossover component list?

Post by scottpeter2 » Sun Jun 19, 2011 10:23 am

Hello, does anyone have a list of components in the ALIII crossover? I want to replace caps, resistors, etc. with the correct values. Thanks.

I've been looking for a schematic for years.
It should sound like it isn't there!

Nobody does. We tried to get it from Bob Carver but that never materialized. I don't know if ANYONE has a schematic of the AL-III crossover.

I think I have one somewhere... It might be the AL-IIIplus, I'll look into it.

Sorry, no schematic for the AL-III. Lots of Platinum schematics though. :?

I have the AL-III speaker and crossover "assembly drawings", but they do not have any values on them.

Do they show the wiring of the crossovers? Certainly values would be more meaningful, especially for inductors. You can usually read the markings on resistors and capacitors, but with inductors, it's a crap shoot, and I really don't want to set up a fixed resistance and a fully adjustable tone generator to calculate inductance. But, I'd take wiring diagrams, too. That way, I might be able to simulate the action.

Bob looked for a long time but never found any. The last thing I heard from him or his daughter was that there was someone on ebay selling Carver schematics & to try that~ :rolleyes:
