    Question about my crossovers

    I finally got around to installing my rainbow geraniums i got off a forum member here awhile ago and have a few questions. Most of which would of been awnsered in the manual had i got it but i didnt so here i am.

    I took a pic of the crossover how i have it wired now and am wondering if its right.




    As you can see (barely) in area 1 what i did seeing as i went with a 2channel is i wired to my tweeter on the crossover than jumped it to my mid. This is how a guy at the local shop told me to do it and im wondering if its correct or if i should of ran two lines from the amp per side to the crossovers.

    Also on area 2 is my tweeter power controller now i kinda know the principle behind it but im wondering if the filment lights up at all does that mean its already getting to much power? I was basically going to use that to set my gains on the amp if i am correct.

    Thanks for any input ahead of time, also if anyone has a pdf of the manual or a link to one that would be great aswell. Rainbow just has specs and catalogues on there site so i was SOL there

    Yes i said that is what it is in my first post, the tweeter power controller, its to prevent to much power from going to the tweeter and will light up.

    Also im not trying to do anything other than hook the tweeter and 6.5 up to a single channel and this was how the local shop said to do that, the picture shows into the crossover from the amp

    Re: Question about my crossovers

    Tweeter + & - output, this goes to the tweeter
    Mid + & - output, this goes to the mid
    use the TW + & TW- input terminals

    I hope that helps,

    It looks like you got it right. If you're not using 2 amp channels to bi-amp them, you'll need to use jumpers.

    Re: Question about my crossovers

    can u get a full pic of the xover? most of the time if they are biample there should be jumpers already in the xover so you don't have to do it like u did.

    Im pretty sure all those are set right. Although in that pic i was playing with tweeter antenation and had it on 3 ( which had nothing coming out of the tweet at all) and decided on 2.

    My question about the tweeter power controller still stands to if anyone can help me shed some light on that aswell.
