Do these solen inductors need the red coating sanded off where they connect to the network?

For any inductor, if you are not soldering to an already stripped or tinned end, you will need to remove the thin insulative coating at the location where you will be soldering a connection.

Scraping it with a utility knife blade is faster than sanding, but either method will work.

Thought I'd share my Nx-Treme cross over layout to make sure there's nothing too wrong with it.

I tried to follow the inductor recomendations.




Thanks.

I would before its too late recommend replacing your Lynx metal oxide resistors. That sub $1 part just doesn’t bode well with foil inductors and nice bypass caps. You have champagne and beer mixed in there. ID recommend some nice wire wound like mills.

They're Dayton wirewound resistors, I think Danny had supply issues with the Mills ones but I'm not sure.
I like the analogy of beer with champagne

Thanks for the feedback.

Yeah, they're Dayton copper wound resistors.

LGK 2.0 crossover.
Just thought I'd run this by Hobbs or Danny before I solder.
I also include a diagram in case anyone wants to copy.
Cheers,  Scott

So I'm trying to build the X-CS crossover with upgrades. The diagram doesn't show where the 2nd 4ohm resistor goes. Can someone help? Thank!

It just sounds like you accidentally got an extra. So if its not on the diagram, you can leave it out.

That's what I assumed. Thank you!

Hey Everybody!
How about feedback on this one? This is the Tweeter circuit in my X-statik.

Here is the Mid circuit for my X-Statik. Any feed back here for me? Do you think the lead from the coil going under is a problem?

The lead from the coil is is a bit long, but you can easily trim it down to a more reasonable length once you're ready to run wires from the front to the back.

Will a steal screw holding the coil down mess with the field?

Nope it already has an iron core running through it, so adding screws to mount it into place won't have any effect.

Hobbs, I found an old post of yours... My X-LS Encore Kit will arrive soon.  Is your build just the base kit, not the upgrade? And did you mount the crossover on the included wood with the flatback? I've watched Danny's videos and I'm using your pictures as a guide.  :D

Yup, that was a base kit, as it was my very first build and I didn't want to risk messing up expensive parts with my lack of experience. :p

This was the board provided with my cabinets, Killian has since started providing much slimmer melamine boards for the crossovers than the one in this picture.

Greetings,
Working on a pair of NX-Studios. Could you please confirm my crossover is correct?
Thanks in advance
