Reliable ways to set up a cross up?

Just have to say first off, I love shoryuken.com lol its so helpful, thanks to everyone who’s replied and helped me out so far on my previous posts. :tup:

So I was wondering, what are some good ways to land Ken’s cross up? I know there’s the ambiguous one after he lands Sa3.

The only other set up that seems to work for me is trying to anticipate sweeps and go for the cross up to counter.

Are there some well known set ups for the cross up?

Also, if the cross up doesn’t connect really deep, will the opponent have a chance to throw? Assuming I don’t hit the cross up way too high, but relatively deep, should i be able to get out a low short or a strong before they can retaliate?
