Well you need some sort of padding whether it be an L-pad or built into the x-over. Since the compression driver is 107db sensitivity and the mid's are only 95db sensitivity youll use the l-pad to lower the compression drivers sensitivity.
Well i made a little bit of progress. I got all the driver's installed and wired up, x-over installed and wired, L-pad's in and wired, and its stuffed with polyfill ready for the back to be installed tomorrow!
Ok about the wiring. I wired 2 banks exactly like this
And then i took bank ones positive and connected it to the positive on the x-over. Then i took bank ones negative and hooked it to bank two's positive. Then i hooked banks two's negative to the x-over negative. So when i hook up the MM to the wires at the x-over i get a reading of 10.2 ohms. But if i put the MM ends on the speaker terminals where the wire from the x-over connects to the speaker(first driver's positive in bank one and first driver negative in bank two) i get a 7.x ohm reading. So is that normal?
And when i check the compression driver i get a 1.2ohm reading? Its suppose to be 8ohm i thought. I wired from the x-over to the l-pad and from the l-pad to the compression driver like this http://www.parts-express.com/pe/psho...52&ctab=4#Tabs
. So theres no way it can be wired wrong. This is my first time so if this is all normal please let me know lol. I dont want to put on the rear panel until i know if this is ok.
