I have a question for Hobbs or Danny. What would you recommend that I do with the polyfill that came with the speaker? Does it still help in any way now that the NoRez is in? The speaker came with four 5ft pieces of polyfill lining the inside. So far I've added back 3 of the 4 pieces and placed them mostly at the bottom of the speaker because there's no NoRez on the floor of the speaker.

I'd put most of it on the bottom or along the back wall and over the crossover. It wont really do much beyond that, but it can help to diffuse the back wave within the speaker a little bit.

Ill ask Danny tomorrow about including a few more feet of wire
for floor standing kits and upgrades going forward.

That would be awesome Hobbs (regarding the wire). Definitely make it less stressful when wiring them up.

thanks Hobbs. That’s how I have it now along the bottom and up the backside.

Finally finished this mod. I learned a lot about myself on this journey.
Many false starts and do overs. All due to my lack of experience with these things.

Observations:
Bass is definitely tighter! Can place speakers closer to the wall now. Off axis listening is much better!
No longer must the listener strain to find the sweet spot.
Far more balanced sound. Clearer, more open sound.
Not as high frequency foreword.

Overkill crossover edition, if anyone was wondering if you can go further with this mod.  Sounds pretty incredible compared to original, and definitely a step up in clarity and detail from SQ in the kit.

Hi everyone.. Im trying to build the board for the RF-6000F. Does this look like the right connection before i soldier?  note that the 4 wires at the top are not connected.  just 2 pairs of 2. this looks very different from the 600 video.
thanks! :popcorn:

Here's another RP-6000F layout if it's helpful to anyone.  This one actually shipped out it to the customer today. The small holes are for the customer to secure the internal wiring by zip tie, after connecting to the crossover leads.

Hello and thanks for your layout. I tried to replicate it should be the last entry in this thread.
What i dont understand is that the board has 5 wires coming from it, not 6. so im not sure where the leads go to on the speakers.. any advice would be helpful please.

If you look closely at the photo you will see that the crossover leads are labeled.

From left to right,  top to bottom

Top row
In-, M-, T+

W+
Bottom row

Thanks Elon for the quick reply,
I see the labels that you put on the boards.
However im a novice.  What im trying to figure out is where the two sub speakers, tweeter wires connect to which posts? also where the input wires connect to the board?
thanks again,
Steve

Top row, far left
Twist new internal wiring intended for input negative, mid woofer negative, and tweeter positive all together. Then twist the crossover lead onto that.   

The rest of the connection points only have one wire.  Abreviations used are
Input. :  In
Mid woofer : Mid
Lower woofer : W

Perhaps there is added confusion because the W- isn't on crossover board.  The W- goes straight to In-

Forgive my pen scratch but here's a couple quick pictures. Here is your wiring.


This one is just showing that top left input that combines 3 wires. There are multiple ways to accomplish the same. You can join all wires at crossover or you can join all wires at input terminal.  As often is the case, there are multiple correct answers.
