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.
