Hi guys
How do I configure the crown for running just one sub?
The Mrs is getting pissed off after redecorating so one has to go  Sad

Scrub that I think I've sussed it.
Had the Crown on bridge bypass instead of bridge lowpass doh!!!

Finally got a pair of these puppies up and running.
Now should I be hearing everything through the subs or just the bass?
At the moment I can hear everything through them vocals, guitar etc.
Is this right?

Thanks Ed,
I've managed to get some 1/2 watt ones hope these will be ok.
I'm all ready to connect everything up now.

Just wanna make sure I've got it right, can you confirm for me please.

600 ohm resistor soldered to center pin of RCA, speaker wire connected to this + to resistor - to ground on the RCA. I make two of these cables. RCA's go into a Y adaptor and into 'bridged input' on the Crown, bare wire ends into left an right channels on power amp as normal ( + into + - into -).
Set the Crown to 'bridged mono'.
Subs wired in PARALLEL to the Crown.

Is all this right? Or do I have anything wrong
Cheers
Neil

Ahhh good shout Ed cheers
Good job I've not wired em yet, I'll hold off a few days

Also do I just connect the subs like 'normal' speakers two lots of speaker wire using left and right channels from my power amp?

Thanks

Hi guys
I built a pair of these last night, gonna try and get em hooked up over the weekend.im gonna be fitting binding posts tonight.
Now while I'm waiting for the concrete to cure can someone help a dumbass like me, I'm struggling to get my head around the wireing.
Is this what I need for my pair of subs?
2 600ohm resistors
2 pairs if IC's
1 Y adaptor
Speaker wire
Banana plugs
I understand how to make the magic cables, how many do I need to make 2sets?
Do they both go into the bridged connection on the crown using the Y adapter? Then the speaker wire end into my power amp? Do I then wire up the subs normally from the power amp?
Sorry for all the questions guys, just wanna make sure I get it right
Cheers
Neil

Thanks everyone for you help, I've ordered the Transcendent phono, seems a no brainer.
Ordered it in kit form so gonna have a crack at it while waiting for The Truth  Grin

I was thinking about running through the MC input but not sure if it would work.
That Transcendent is tempting though

Thanks for the advice, I'm still on the lookout for a phonostage, so I need one with 50/60 db output.
Anything else I should be looking out for?

Neil
