I'm still working on it. The areas where the aluminium panels
come together were left unpainted for earth continuity. The cheap Pots
I used in the trial build have been swapped out for some TKD 2CP-601,
10k, Dual Gang, Log Pots. This pair of Potentiometers, including
extension kits, cost more than the crossover circuits, but as they are
output signal path, I thought it worth the expense. I had considered
rail stepped attenuators, or measuring the settings used on the cheap
replacing these with good quality fixed resistors. I figured that the
the attenuator would have been too big for accurate driver integration
fixed resistors wouldn’t allow any fine adjustment for things
room acoustics, a change of interconnects or Amp, so the pots seemed
The new Pots have made an improvement to the sound, if only slightly, they sound more mellow, the originals sound slightly sharp/grainy in comparison. The main difference is the channel matching which is a lot closer on the new ones. I measured to check and they are within a couple of percent compared to eight percent on the originals.
The next thing to try is a bit of op amp rolling.
