Hello

I have three Exodus LCR speakers and now have a bad crossover in one of them. Does anyone have a Mid/Tweeter crossover they would like to sell? I am having problems with the Mid section of the crossover causing my reciever to go into protection mode all the time during certain parts of a movie. If I disconnect the mid speaker and play the same part of the movie all works great. I did try changing out the mid speaker with another one but the problem continues so it looks like there is an issue with the crossover.

Thanks Rick

Get out your DMM and see what's wrong; something is shorting somewhere. If you find it's a cap, resistor, or inductor, just replace it. No need for a new XO, you just need to repair it.

Yes I could test each part but I need to know when I test them how do I tell if each part is good or bad?

Thanks Rick

Protection mode sounds like a short. That would be the first thing I try to look at on the crossover board.

My next thought would be a capacitor gone bad. If they arc inside that can set up a short as well.

Although a short would be present even when the driver was removed. When you say you removed the mid driver, did you just remove the driver itself, or the whole crossover + driver?

If it's only shorting when the driver is in place, you may have a bad driver. Check the DC resistance on it and report back.

good luck.

Here is a little info. First the speaker only shorts out my receiver during certain parts of a movie. It is consistant when it happens during these parts. I did try switching out my Mid driver with one from another speaker that I have no issues with and the same thing continue to happen. Now when I disconnect the mid driver (remove the positive side off the speaker) I can play the same movie over and over and the receiver never shorts out. Thus this is why I think it has to do with something on the crossover.

Sorry but just need the crossover. Having a guy look at it this weekend to see if he can't find the problem with one of parts on the board.
