Seems to be quite a bit bigger than the UE11 X-over.

Oh yeah, it's a 3 way crossover and the UE11 is a 2 way right. Maybe that's why.

UE11 is 3 ways as well. Than again, you don't need crossover if you utilized frequency specified transducer.

You mean each transducer filters the frequency by itself?

If not, crossovers should be used. You don't want the bass driver trying to reproduce high frequency sound, which it can't do effectively anyway.

Cool pictures, thanks for sharing.

Very nice pics I wonder how's the SQ of the recabled product

Yes, something like that (no referring to UE11 here, but more general). I read from an old blog entry on Klipsch website a while ago, saying that they did some special (mechanical) tuning to one of the BA drive inside one of their 'custom' series so even though two of the same transducer are used, one of them actually has more bass than the other, like a bass drive.

seems like more work than an actual crossover. you would think a crossover would be easier to play with different tunings than having to actually mechanically change something each time you wanted to edge the HF or LF.

wait a sec so if there is a cross over circuit, is that for L/R channels? or is that for the frequencies and if it is for the freqencies, whats the point of making dedicated frequency based drivers if you wind up crossing them anyway?
post #24 of 49
Let's think about how we'd do this, if we could do it in a perfect world. We'd have one driver for high frequencies (say 20K-2K), another driver for midrange (2K-500), and one driver for low frequencies (500-20). I'm just making these numbers up for the sake of an explanation. Now, there is no way we could create a driver that is going to have a perfect cut off at the 2K mark, or the 500Hz Mark- they're going to bleed a bit into the spectrum of the other drivers. That's where the cross overs come in- they help make the drop off in frequencies occur more quickly than they would alone.

maybe... anyone open up a q-jays yet?
post #26 of 49
I think the q-Jays don't have a crossover, they look like they're using a dual armature in one housing (according to the schematics drawing in the manual). I asked Jays about the technology inside but they told me it's a secret.

Guys you are not gonna believe this but, this pair of W3 is mine.I sold it to this zephone company,which had successfully design cable to mod TF10,se530 and many other types, to helped them develop new upgrade cable.At that day I just watched the boss expertly disassembled and took photos.Now their upgrade cables are available on Head-fi
