Hello AC and GR!

I'm working on my first upgrade and have a few questions regarding the crossover assembly for the 600M kit. I've looked at the crossover 101 thread and viewed Danny's youtube videos quite a bit, but am still unsure where the wire coming off the small inductor goes... I sure hope I'm not missing something obvious.

If possible, can I also get an overall sanity check on my wiring?
I'm super excited to get these soldered up and start listening to them!!






Values have been covered up : ) Any help is appreciated!

Ahhh ok it looks like that orange question mark is the negative return from the woofer...

Didn’t Danny send you a circuit diagram?

It should shunt (connect) to the ground/negative wire leading to the negative terminal, that's how the smaller inductor works on my X-LS.

Looks good.

That other leg on the small inductor will get caught by the negative leg going from the woofer negative back to the negative tube connector.

Thanks guys for the replies (and Danny for the call) -- I'm fully up and running after one small change to fix a mistake I made. Now time to settle in and enjoy :)

Early impressions are a better integrated, more coherent presentation. Less shouty up top. Certainly more detail across the range. And the bass is tighter and cleaner. I did heavily damp the woofer frame with the extra no-rez.

It's still Klipsch-y, but more refined, and that's exactly what I was hoping for. And all this with just the stock binding posts... I'm going to cut over to the tube connectors in a few days :)

Cheers!

Thanks for checking in to give impressions, always cool to hear what people think when they complete a build or upgrade process. Please check back in to give impressions on the tube connectors when you do that switchover as well!

Hi Danny, is this correct?  ( it's my first time with a hot glue gun and doing a circuit)

About ready to pull the trigger on the mod, but a quick question.  I currently bi-wire my Klipsch RP600M's.  Should I ask for another set of tube connectors to convert my bi-wire cables?

Looking forward to this project and am thinking about documenting my novice skills in this thread or a separate thread.

Thanks

Yes, if you still plan to bi-wire your speakers then you'll definitely want a 2nd set of tube connectors to make sure your signal quality is maintained across both woofer & tweeter circuits.

Looking forward to seeing your process of upgrading them!

Then again, I could put one set of tube connectors in and be able to compare.  I guess I could always go back in a mount the second set later after listening to the difference...
