I have been out of the speaker building hobby for about 10 years so please excuse my ignorance. I remember reading about this technique and am wondering if any one has experience with it. Does it mean that every parallel component in the x-over and negative terminals on drivers are all connected separately to a common terminal at x-over and then connected to negative binding post terminal of speaker? I read about this a long time ago in some literature from NothCreek, just wondering if I have it right. Thanks for any help.

You can star ground if you want, but it's not mandatory.

This crossover has three terminals, one for input, one for W, one for T.

Each pair of terminals has a + and - terminal.

If you were to look at the other side of the circuit board, the - terminals will be
all connected via circuit board traces.

You don't need to make one terminal, you can make a few along the same path
because the length is too small to manifest gremlins.

The perfect setting for things to come......
