The ACN-basic-kit is a very good package! Super PCB, well matched JFets.
I want to use it as an active 2-way-crossover for my speaker build (not for
the LXmini). All resistors/caps will be changed in the Sallen-Key-filters.
A more universal ACN-Kit (as mentioned from Nelson Pass) could be very
The new DIY-audio-shop is doing a fantastic job! Very fast delivery from the USA
to Germany (below 12 days - including customs).
Well packed and always good infos by email.
Thanks to DIYaudio-team!

Great kit! Assembled it in a few hours, without problems. Worked on first attempt and plays beautifully.
I never managed to get rid of some noise issues with my minidsp solution. Finally I have a silent background. Also the speakers still sound great! Maybe slightly "different", but not sure how to describe it. Could be the lack of noise :) Anyhow, this kit will stay in the system, without any doubt.
Thanks for the great job to everyone involved!
Went together well.
Worked first time.
very nice improvement over the dsp. I now learned more on how to get other crossover and basslift values. I will order another one shortly:)
very nice layout which allows for customization - in my case to build a crossover to go with a Pass SLOB open baffle speaker with a full range driver augmented with a slot-loaded woofer. The crossover allows for a bi-amp arrangement with level and crossover slope matching, as well as tailored EQ for each driver. I am combining this board with a NuTube board for gain. Should make a great combo.
Finaly I received the parts, the German DHL did a bad job and resend the items to USA where they get lost. But diyaudiostore shipped the parts for free, they charged only the shipping. Thanks a lot! Great stuff, now I am fiddling to find the best crossover points for my Speakers.
I used this crossover to replace an op-amp based crossover board and an old SAE parametric equalizer which I had used to feed a speaker system based on vintage JBL pro sound speaker components. The parametric equalizer had been used to boost the low bass a bit and to remove a 2 kHz peak.
Using LTspice, I was able to redesign the notch filter so that it was narrower and not as deep and centred at 2 kHz. No modifications were required to the circuit board, although jumpers were added and components changed. LTspice was also handy in recalculating the crossover component values to get a 800 Hz crossover frequency and to modify the bass equalization. Frequency response tests after building confirmed that the design was accurate.
This crossover does the job with minimal circuitry and can be modified to suit users' needs, which was what I was looking for. So, it can work for speakers other than the LX Mini. Pretty hard to beat for the price, too.
