Hello,

I recently bought a B300, B110, T52 combination.
The crossovers that came with this set are intended for the Elektor/KEF PL301.
These crossovers (SP2067 and SP2066) contain components that slightly differ from these used in the CS9 project.
Can I use the PL301 crossovers in the CS9 ?

Thanks,

Tony-Belgium

Not really, the PL301 is a frequency domain design like the Ref 104-2, with the mid and treble units mounted on a trapizoidal baffle a couple of inches in front of the bass unit.

So you'd get the right kind of frequency split but the polar response using a flat baffle would provide a strange stereo image, unless your going to use them in a small (3m square?) room.
