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?

I see the 830667 is now going for $55.52 at PE.  Get two and free shipping (over $100).  

Madisound is almost $11 more and shipping isn't cheap.

It may be time for some holiday boom-boom (and a new pair of subs).  Grin

I notice you can still get the ACA boards at the DIYAUDIO Store:

I'm waiting on the new ACA release... should be pretty soon.

Hi Neil, yep. You got it. You might just check with your meter that the L & R  grounds are common on your power amp. You can not use this connection with most digital amps!
Ed

Is there a way to use a class d main amp with the Crown?  I've never thought about it, but with some of the new supposedly super-duper class d out there now, I'm getting a little curious.  Huh

Also, the class d amps don't get along with the Horn/Heil crossover, so that's not an avenue to pursue for the two-way Horns. But maybe it could be used for a different speaker.  A class d bass signal feeding a Crown could be a treat.

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

Hey buddy, don't obsess! 560- 700 should be fine. Also, don't forget you can make the value ........ parallel halves the value and series adds them. Use any combination of parallel and series to get what you want! 2- 1.2 K in parallel will get you 600 for instance. Or 2- 1.0k in parallel gets you 500 and then a 100 in series with that gets you 600. 

You can probably use 1/4 watt......if they fail, they will open and not short (which would be bad Smiley ). Pretty sure mine are 1/4 watt.

Hope this helps.
