Asr Xover Pot Change Out

This segment of the modification is complete. The removal of the old CTS were done and the ALPS installed. I did my best with the photos of the process.



The offending pot in it's place.



A close up.



Pot removed.



The circuit cleaned and prep for the next step.



The Two pots. Notice the cylindrical pot has a different pin pattern. This is why the board will be modified.



Some measurements, and the marks for the holes.



The pot ready for solder. Notice the holes have been made. A dremel tool.



Voila, done,

Asr Update

There are differences between the two pots. One noticeable is the rotation level. Where the old pots 12 o'clock setting is the ALPS 2 o'clock setting.

The obvious is the smoother rotation. Oh so very smooth. Sonically, there was inprovements. Cleaner signal. This was a worthy changeover. Anyone who has a device and want to improve on the feel of their pot(s) the ALPS are recommended.

Very smooth indeed.

This will be the last modification on this item.

Next, the Ashly XR4001 change to a RLA style crossover with the benefits of the Ashly sound shaping.



I am loving the ASR 3 way crossover. This one is a keeper. Don't look for this one on ebay. hahahahah

why did you decide to drill new holes in the board?

Don't some people use small leads of wires to connect the pots' pin out to the circuits input holes? and then use hot glue to hold the pots in place?

http://www.wavemusic.com/community/s...highlight=glue

looks good and all.... but just wondering why you went the route you took, is all....

the reason for the new holes was to keep the signal path as short as possible. I wanted the pots to look like they came with the unit. The modification of the circuit board was to maintain the stock appearance.

I like clean installs. The work took a bit more time to complete, but the results was worth the effort. Not to mention the pots now line up perfectly like the original pots.

If the pot should ever go bad, desolder, remove, replace, solder and let's go. No hot glue to remove. Glue removal can be tedious.

In the pictures you see the easiest of the mod. The other two pots required trace cutting and rerouting of the trace. Nothing a dremel tool can't cure.

See I have a strong background in RF. I have been modifying circuits for a while. Matter of fact, I was once in the custom RF amp business. With these I have to start with a blank sheet of heavy gauge copper and create the traces all on my own. I really don't know another way to do. Therefore, when making mods like this one, circuit work is not strange to me. It's common practice.

cool.....

I was just wondering because i have seen mods like that done various ways....

I think I would be scared to drill out the board

(well I did take a dremel to my pitch control board in my 1200s....
so i guess it's not much of a leap-- but I didn't modify the trace or anything,
maybe that's what scares me)

Trace mods are not complicated. However, you better have some practice before attempting to do this. If the mod will lend itself to a direct installation then small changes. However, the Ashly change will require a bit more. This one will require leads due to the arrangement of the pots on the board. However, this won't be difficult either.

what is considered the "better" way?

Who knows, the bottom line is getting the device to work.

This is my personal preference. If the circuit can be lightly modded and some trace work or holes are needed this will add to the appearance, this is the way for me.

My goal has always been to make the modification look stock. It lends itself to a cleaner appearance. And helps should resale be an option.

Presentation is 90% of the sale.

The work requires attention and patience. It is not recomended that a first attempt to modify be made on the piece you intend to keep. Practice on some broken equipment that has little value or worth.

This is one of the reasons I don't have a problem with gear that is slightly damaged. I love ebay for this.

For instance the SC 70 I purchased from ebay, for $8, didn't function. The guy listed this in description. Cool. I bought as a learning tool. Gave me something to examine up close and personal. If I can repair it so be it. If not, not great loss. Come to find out that someone before me attempted to mod the thing out. Yech, on their work. Shoddy.

Two weeks, a schematic, and viola. The Ashly works as it should and the mods were remove and the unit returned to stock. Now I have another crossover that will eventually wind up on ebay with a clean bill of health.

I like to keep things clean in appearance, and looking like it did when it came from the factory.

Like I said earlier the other two pots required board work. Here are two shot of the mods. The traces were cut, and notice the small black wire that continues the signal path of the circuit in question.





Again, my goal is to keep things clean.
