View Full Version : EPI 180 Crossover Configuration

03-01-2013, 01:28 PM
Replacing the caps on my 180's before putting them back together, but can't decide how to set up the crossover. Right now they have the 3-way switch with resistors and a single 16uf cap. I am bypassing the switch for simplicity's sake (and I have no desire to lower the tweeter level). Do I go with the single 16 or 20uf cap, or run two 10uf caps, one to each tweet? Was also planning on putting a .01uf bypass cap with them since I've read that tends to work pretty good for these. Or is this a case of "6 one way, half-dozen the other?" It looks like HUMAN uses 2 caps on their replacement crossover, but I don't know if it makes any difference or not.
