Hello guys.I finished building my first HD15 a couple of days ago and for the moment is loaded with an Eminence Delta15LFA that i just had around. I brought an T.AMP 1400MK to use with it and i already have 4 cabs that i used to make my small party's.
The 4 cabs i have are this ones here: http://www.fbt.it/ENG/PAE/PRODOTTI/SPEAKERS/JOLLY/Jolly-12r-/
and the amp is this one:http://www.thomann.de/gb/tamp_ta1400_amplifier.htm.
For the first tests i have seen that i miss the crossover,so i have a friend that had an old CROWN FFX-2 crossover that he did not used anymore.I configured it as a 3 way mono with the x-over points at 52Hz and 180Hz. So i take the woofer to go to my HD15 and the High channel to go to my speakers.I leave out the SUB section for now.
My question is if i can use this crossover as in the manual say is an 18dB/octave.I won ask about delays yet,ill just try to keep my speakers in line with the HD15.

Thank you!

It will work.

But I would change the resistors for 60Hz and 150Hz.
Check the manual:

Yeah you will be ok, might as well have a go with it. Ideally you do want an adjustable crossover so you can have a play and see what sounds best. One HD15 is not going to have the best response ever so it's not too much of a worry till you build more. Blocks of 4+ start to become fun.

Thank you guys!
In my idea i would like to build 1 more HD15 and 2 X1's to go with my 4 small FBT cabs.So i could use 2 medium/high each side for the stereo effect and the 2 X1's and 2 HD15 in the middle just for kick and bass.Keep in mind is only for small gigs like 50 people or less.You guys think 2 HD15 would be enough for 2 X1's ?
