Re: Platinum Amazings Lost Bass!

Would you want to sell your clearwater crossover?

Yes all four woofers are working in each speaker. These are the plat IV's

Just ran across this....howdy neighbor! I live about 20 minutes away from you. BTW, there is a local company here in Charlotte that can do a complete crossover rebuild or upgrade.

Hey thanks for the info. What is the name of the place that can rebuild them?

Re: Platinum Amazings Lost Bass! UPDATE

I removed the crossovers and found a Rane AC22S crossover on audio mart.($150) Got everything connected and boom the bass is back and the ribbons now sound the same! =D> Obviously I had some serious crossover problems. Now I'm trying to decide if I even want to have them rebuilt. An active crossover gives you some good tweaking options. Right now I have the crossover set at 180hz and the tweeter level dialed back just a little from the woofer level. I have not noticed any delay problems between the woofers and tweeters although the Rane does have delay controls if needed. I'm sure I could probably get better sound out of rebuilt crossovers versus the Rane but don't want to spend $500 for a rebuild right now.
