DIY Crossfeed Options

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
So I want to make a DIY stand-alone crossfeed. What are my options? PCB's/schem's are good.

Tangent sells a crossfeed kit http://tangentsoft.net/shop/

Instead of modifying that one (which is designed to fit on those certain amps), are there any specifically "stand-alone" crossfeeds?

I would opt for the Corda Cross-1. IMO it sounds more natural than the Modified Linkwitz. Unfortunately there are no PCB's left over from Meier's giveaway (I still have one left but not selling).

How complicated it it? Do you think you could make a quick schematic/parts list? I would be honored to design a PCB for it.

Take a look here http://headwize.com/projects/showfil...meier2_prj.htm

He has a schematic with multiple levels of crossfeed.

Also on Meier Audio's site: http://www.meier-audio.homepage.t-on...sivefilter.htm

Someone laid out a Cross-I on a breadboard and this is the art for it. It'd be easier than designing a PCB.

Also, I highly recommend Dr. Meier's crossfeed implementation. I was lucky enough to get boards and endplates in the giveaway, and have logged many hours on the DIY Cross-I. It was absolutely worth the effort.

fixed link.

I'm pretty sure that's the page you were looking for. It looks great; however, if you're a noob like me, you might not be able to understand it. If there was a PCB made for this, I would probably jump on it, but at this point, I've basically already settled into Tangent's Modified Linkwitz design (and PCB, and instructions).

is this similar to the jan meier one as claim.

Can someone explain to me how to include a swtich to bypass, i don't quite undertsand from the diagram

This is an old thread I am interested on.

I want to build a crossfeed. Is the one mentioned by Grotto  at http://www.rock-grotto.co.uk/crossproject2.htm and looks very easy to build.

Like the previous post from 1997, I don't understand the switch either.

http://www.rock-grotto.co.uk/crossfeedtips.htm

Could somebody explain it to a DIY noobie?

I'll try :-)

 

Crossfeed out of circuit, The signal completly bypasses the crossfeed circuit

Crossfeed IN circuit, the signal goes through the crossfeed circuit

hope that helps

It helps a lot. Just remember I am new at DIY. My only built so far is a humble Cmoy.

Are there any resistors in between or is it just wires? How does the other side of the board looks like?

Sorry for asking such elemental questions.

Hi thats the back of the switch on the other side is the toggle, theres no board involved

 

cheers

This is kind of an old thread, but I am looking for a schematic for a Corda crossfeed circuit and I can not for the life of me find one on the internet...  Grrr.

 

Does anyone have a copy of it or have a link (that works) to it?

 

Thanks!
