Convert sb121 to sb121xp/sb122 by installing crossover posssible?

Can this be done? I have a great set of sb121's I use with zx-1 satellites.and don't want to buy sb122's. I don't want an outboard crossover. Can the crossover be installed in the sb121? I believe they used to be available as sb121xp's. Is the crossover attached to the jack plate and just a matter of switching them out? What would the part number and approximate cost be (Is it worth it)?

    I found the crossover (part# xpsb2002) from the sb121xp is no longer available. The crossover assembly (part# 560487000) from the sb122 is available from EV for $21.35 ea. Can anyone tell me if this part is compatible with the sb121?

    Is there anything other than removing/disconnecting the stock jack plate and replacing with the new assembly (no other parts etc)?

    Thanks everybody-now I've got work to do.

I have a pair of Goodmans Magnum SL speakers. Crossover capacitors.


The capacitors in my Magnums are 3.3uF and 8uF and don't need replacing as they are the foil type (which essentially last forever) rather than non-polar electrolytics (which fail after about 10 years).

I have a true sunfire sub and an onkyo 703 that has an rca connection for the sub. My question is do I connect my side channel polk 65's directly to the sub in jacks or directly to the reciever? If


The input jacks on the subwoofer panel are for connection of satellite speakers to it's crossover. The outputs are for the crossed over signal input to your receiver or amplifier, as there will be no amplification or channel processing from the subwoofer connection. It's only an optional crossover that may have a sonic advantage over the crossover in your receiver.

What you also can do is connect the speakers directly to the 703 and set the crossover frequency on it.

Hello........ looking for a schematic for Bose 501 series 3 speakers. I need to replace the fuse in line with the tweeters.... its blown & does not have a value on it (unmarked, quick blow, twin lead,...


Did you find a solution? Dunno if it's much help, but I just today picked up some 501s - Series I I think - ugly heavy brown material grilles - but with a manual! No fuses in these, but booklet recommends installing your own in-line fuse holders (!?). Specifies a BUSS AGC-3 fuse for amps under 50wpc; or a MDL-2 fuse for amps over 50 wpc. Can be placed is series with either or the two signal wires. Very strange.... Robin

Can we use the subwoofer as an amplifier for speakers? it has jacks for speaker in/out, but i can't figure out how to make it work because the speakers have no sound.


I don't believe this hookup is amplified; but, if you have used the regular unfiltered speaker connections from your receiver/amplifier to hookup the subwoofer, the system will pass the signal thru the outputs subject to the crossover adjustment on the back panel. You cannot get the full signal if your system is sending only the bass signal to the subwoofer. I have copied the instructions below from the manual. You would set the high freq crossover to the low end of your satellite's frequency range. The full manual is here: http://www.jbl.com/EN-US/Products/Pages/ProductSupportDetails.aspx?PID=PSW-D110

High-Pass Control
• If you hooked up your subwoofer
as shown in Hookup
3 on page 4, you also have
the capability of adjusting
the high-pass frequency.
The High-Pass control
determines the frequency at
which the main speakers
will start reproducing
sounds. If your main speakers
can comfortably reproduce
some low-frequency
sounds, also set this control
to a lower frequency
setting, between 50Hz –
100Hz. This will concentrate
the subwoofer’s
efforts to the ultradeep
bass sounds, while your
main speakers continue to
reproduce the mid-bass
information. If you are
using smaller bookshelf
speakers that do not extend
to the lower bass frequencies,
set the high-pass crossover
control to a higher setting,
between 125Hz – 180Hz.
With this setting, your main
speakers will not have the
burden of reproducing any
low-frequency sounds.
• If you hooked up your subwoofer
as shown in Hookup
1 on page 3, the high-pass
frequency is fixed at 180Hz.
• If you hooked up your subwoofer
as shown in Hookup
2 on page 4, there is no
high-pass control. Unless
your receiver/amplifier
incorporates a high-pass
crossover, your main speakers
will continue to get a
full-range signal.
Final adjustment and blending
of the low-pass and high-pass
controls may evolve over several
listening sessions. A good
starting point would be to set
both the low- and high-pass
controls to the same frequency
and adjust from that point.

Cerwin Vega SUB8...how do I connect


grady66,
We will start with the easy one, Phase. The phase selector is a setting that can be adjusted by sound; which one sounds better? Either one will work fine. It's mainly for situations where the sub enclosure is located at a distance or behind the listening area. The 'in and out' crossover selector and the input from the receiver goes together. The 'in and out' crossover selector is asking if you want to use the internal crossover to block the bass from getting to the satellite speakers. Most home surround sound receivers only have the one sub out and most subs have both left and right inputs. When there is a single signal being fed to the sub you use the subs left input or buy a splitter and send the signal into both left and right, but either way will work equally the same.

There is two ways to connect the speakers to the receiver.

1) Cross-over 'In': you connect the output speaker wires from the receiver to the speaker inputs on the sub and the speaker outputs on the sub to the satellite speakers; the sub will get its sound from the input speaker wires.

2) Cross-over 'Out': you connect the sub to the receiver using the receiver's single sub out, then connect the satellite speakers directly to the receiver's speakers outputs; in this configuration the satellite speakers are given a full range of signal including the bass.

I have used #2 with the same system and had great results.

Continous low level pulsing but no Base Response from JBL PSW1000


There is a huge discussion among audio enthusiast regarding subwoofer output and how you should connect your sub to your system. If sub preout is turned and on your amp/receiver and you are able to adjust the crossover frequency adjust your crossover frequency to highest setting, higher HZ number, so you don't double low pass filter your signal too much. If you can adjust crossover frequency on your receiver and your sub allows separate connection to by pass it's filter, use that instead.
There is a great article on Polk Audio website regarding Home Theater setup. You can use it as reference and tweak it to your taste.

No sound from EV SH-1502 ER 15" driver


Either the 15" speaker is dead, or the passive crossover inside the unit. The simplest way to identify your problem is to remover the speaker that isn't working from the enclosure, and exchange it with the speaker that is working. If there's no sound still, it's the speaker itself that is the problem. If it works in the other cabinet, then put the "working" speaker in the cabinet you took the "bad" speaker out of, and if it doesn't work, then there's a problem with the crossover in the first cabinet. I believe you can buy a replacement crossover from EV. If it's your speaker, do a google search for "speaker re-coning" in your area - it's cheaper to re-cone the speaker than buy a new one.

Hi r_drain

great choice of speaker, always liked MS gear. They are designed to be biamped, or rather have a separate amplifier for bass and treble frequencies. You can just jumper between the terminals. They originally cam with a plate that connect the 2 black and red terminals together making effectively one black and one red. The speaker still has a crossover in line internally.
