My new front of house speaker system. (Project)

in #music3 years ago (edited)

I needed more volume, clearer sound and TRUE stereo from my main speakers for my sound system. Also the way I was running it before wasn't the best idea.

I have 2 15" subs for the low end but my mids and highs were just a set of 12" mains that wasn't enough. I found a pair of horns that I could use but the drivers were blown and nobody made parts for them so new drivers were on order.
After a bit of research I figured out how I was going to wire them up. You can't give high frequency horns bass or they can blow. I needed to get the bass out of the signal to them so I set on making a passive crossover.
I started by taking the old parts of the existing board. 20170816_111421.jpg

Then I needed to fit the new parts.

Here is my rough drawing of the how I am going to wire it up. 20170816_114401.jpg
And then mock up of how I am placing them
