I'm having a issue with my crossovers. Lows and highs outputs are playing, but nothing at all from mid. Midhorn makes sound if I Connect to low/high output. None of the drivers makes any sound at all if I Connect them to mid output.
Strangely enough it's the same with both crossovers.
What am I doing wrong? Can you guide me through finding the flaw? Shipping Price is insane so I would like avoiding sending them to you.
I'll be honest, I expected to see IN+ to 2+ as open if there's no sound. The fact that it shows continuity makes me think you should hear the midhorn. But another thing that could kill output would be a short across C4. You might measure across that component and report back.
Dumb question, but have you tried simply checking the wiring to the midhorns?
My 'go-to' is a regular 1.5V battery. Pull the midhorn leads from the crossover
and stick the wires on each end of a battery. It should make noise as you
connect/disconnect. You can also check polarity my touching the cone.
The crossover electronics aren't all that complicated, so I expect you can resolve
this without shipping. It will just take some back and forth and maybe
schematic reading verses physical layout training.
