I am going to resurface the good ole DIY threads for HLCD systems. I have decided on this route and have a couple of things I need clarity on. Here is an old drawing of one of these systems that I am using as my design. Below is the pictue and List of compnents
Horns 2 Emenince PDS-2002S w/6x8 Horn Flares
MidBase 4 Eminence 8" Beta's (8 0hm) 225 wrms
Sub 1 Kicker 12" L7 4ohm DVC 750 wrms
This old diagram shows half of my tower arrangement. I plan to double this. Below are my questions as I am not an audiopile...
1. Can I wire both horns from the same crossover/Lpad or do I need a seperate one for each can?
2. The author of this diagram called this a 4 ohm system. Why is this not a 2.66 ohm system. Including the horn, there are 3 speakers in the diagram with 8 ohms impedence each. Is this really 4 ohms and why?
3. Assuming this is a 4 ohm system and that I will be installing 2 of them, what would be the best way to wire the two system to 1 Kicker KX800.2. I really want the amp to see 2 ohms so it can send 400 wrms to each system. I can only figure to get 2 ohms on the amp by running it mono and that is 800.1 @ 2 ohm which is a no no.
I am thinking that I am going to have to get another KX800.2 amp. At 4 ohms they run 200x2 or 400x1 wrms.
Any other suggestions???
I just ordered the equipment and can't wait to start on it.
