The speakers don't connect to the crossover at all. The number of speakers is determined by the amplifier and the impedence rating of the speakers involved. Perhaps you are not asking for the right information? If the above does not help, please update this with a more detailed description of what you need and I'll try to provide that info as well.

How to wire up outboard effects, poweramps to mixer. Out to sub, mains, monitors each with own poweramp, and several outboard effects, eq's, comp/lim/gate, sonic maximizer, quadraverb, crossover.

I'd need to know what mixer you have, to know if there is a [line out] connection socket and an [internal amp in] connection socket.

"each with own poweramp" I presume means the ep1500's and NOT that the speakers are active (ie containing amps)

***If any of your speakers are active, ask the question again, with more detail.***

So if all your speakers are passive, I offer the following.

I assume there is [effect send] and [effect return] on the mixer

effect send>quadraverb>effect return

mixer line out > eq > compressor > sonic maximizer > crossover

sub output of crossover> amp > sub
high output of crossover to mixer's internal amp input
mixer's speaker output > main speakers

monitor output > other side of eq (>other side of compressor if desired, but use sparingly ) > other side of sonic max if it is true stereo , otherwise skip > amp > monitors

If your mixer doesn't have an input to its internal amp, we are "back to the drawing board"
With questions like this it pays to give as much detail as possible; model and make of each component etc
I have done my best with the the info you have provided.

I can't give you much information other than to tell you the idea of adjustable crossovers is to allow adjustments to suit the acoustics of the room or space where they are sited, a function that used to be common but has largely been replaced by the graphic equaliser, popularly used to adjust the sound to suit personal preference but originally was intended to be used with a white or pink noise generator and adjusted to compensate for mechanical and electronic "inefficiencies" of hi-fi systems to produce a pure sound.

The best advice I can offer you is to start hanging with a few hi-fi nuts to learn what you need to know and lots more. Positioning the speakers is very important for a good sound and popular and inexpensive mod is to fit spiked feet to them or lift them clear of the ground on purpose built stands...

Hello! I have a dbx 223xl, the right channel is good, but the left channel doesn't work, all de cap and electronic component looks fine, nothigh seem burned out, but it's still doesn't work. What can you...

The only way to troubleshoot this effectively is to use an oscilloscope to signal trace. You can't tell much about electronic components unless they have external damage which often doesn't show.

Hello, What is the proper way to connect an Ashly XR1000 Crossover and a Pyle Pro PTA1400 power amp to my Peavey XR8600 so I can use 2 subs? The subs are not powered, but do have a passive crossover...

Here is a link to the manual: I didn't look at the manual for the crossover but this is probably the way I would do it. Look at page 13 in the manual : Come out of the Main out (31 in the diagram) into the main in of your crossover. Go out of your crossover Hi and Mid out setting back into Power amp In 1 (labelled 32 in the diagram). Hook your speakers that you normally use to the output jacks on the back of the Peavey. Make sure you match the output impedances. Go out of your crossover low output into the Pyle power amp and out of the Pyle into your subs. Make sure the impedance ratings of all your speakers match the output impedances of your amps. You will only be running in Mono mode as that is the signal output of the Peavey mixer. You can run faux stereo by using the Main monitor Out as 1/2 the pair and the Main Out as the other 1/2 to both channels of the crossover but you won't be getting a true stereo pan mode.
