I just purchased:
1 - 2215 Dual 15-Band Graphic Equalizer
1 - 234XL Stereo 2-Way Mono 3-Way Crossover
2 - CVA-28 Cerwin Vega Powered Tops
1 - AB-36C Folded Horn Sub

I am running my balanced mixer out to the EQ, Balanced EQ out to the Crossover, but that is where I am getting stuck. How do I connect my tops, and also connect my Sub.

    Press the wizard button and select custom passive with mono sub. That will set up a 2x3.
    Read the READ ME FIRST SECTION for some great info.

    Oh, I thought you had a Driverack. Do you have the manual for the x-over? Is there a mono sub button?

    Are you looking for hookup help, or what buttons and knobs to set where?

    I haven't got a lot of time right now, but check this thread for parallels...

    You have \"full range\" top speakers (highs) and sub speakers (lows). No mid speakers.
