ok heres whats going on, i had the neg and pos ****ed up on all of that crossover, then everything was going fine, didnt run hot, now every once in a while it shuts off still, not hot at all, then i turn off then back on and it works fine, thats the new problem, all wires are good, all conections are good, i wiggled them allot while i was listening to it, and it seems to happen more while its louder

AHHHH NONONONO -- ! Not that -- no... haha :crazy: -- anyways thatís a bad idea... I don't know it may not be a much worse xover design than the one the sets came with... but it defiantly wasnít designed for these particular drivers ;)

Anywho if one of the xovers is working properly... if you send me the xovers I can indeed fix them no problem -- just parts costs (dirt cheap if its just a single inductor... like $2.50-6 depending on the value) and shipping and paypal fees and like $4-8 or something tiny like that... I mean it will only take a few mins of my time... desolder the working one -- measure the value if it -- order the part -- wait a day for it -- solder it on -- ship it out to you with the next batch of custom xovers...

If you wanted me to design ya a brand spanking new xover that would sound a world or 2 better than the one that came with it you would have to send me your drivers as well... and pay me more :rolleyes: but you just want a cheap fix I'm sure.
