Jack tweeter switch diagram?

#1 Post by himhimself » Sun Feb 14, 2021 1:06 pm

Looking back through my Jack12 and Jacklite12 plans, and don't see anything regarding the wiring for switching a full piezo array to half and off. Considering building a pair to use for small gigs when subs with my otops are overkill, and also using as bass cabs. Could also use a fills for another room when the big system is elsewhere. Am I missing it somewhere? I'm sure I could come up with a solution, but why reinvent the wheel if it's already detailed out some where. Thanks!

It works well, I just used this diagram. :D

I used a three position slide switch instead of the toggle.

I didn't want the toggle lever to extend beyond the back panel.

Smart!!
I know I broke a few switches on my old J15 before I op-ed for a shallow, push button, on/off switch.

Thanks guys. Am thinking I will probably use a three position rocker, for that very reason so it can sit recessed. There's some center off ones marked I 0 II which would be perfect for half - off - full tweeters. I looked briefly for some that would require a little screwdriver or fingernail, like DIP switches, to really make sure they don't get accidently bumped, but no luck so far. And it's not like having it in the wrong position is going to hurt anything anyway.
