Hi Everyone! New guy here with what may be a beaten to death question.
I have had a pair of RTi10's in my HT for quite some time now and have started to fall out of love with them. They are good for TV and movies but do not handle music very well. It's the same old complaints...bright highs and lacking good mid-range. I use a powered sub so bass in not much of an issue.
I have searched for fixes and found the "adding 1 ohm resistor or a 1uf cap to the tweeter" mods. That would be fine for taming the highs however I'm looking for a little more. Perhaps some crossover mods.
So now for my question...
Are there any crossover fixes that will help these speakers? I have not been able to find any information on the RTi10 crossovers. I know that the RTiA7 and the RTi10 are basically the same speaker. Will the RTiA7 crossover mods work on the RTi10's?
doubt it two different beast. Some replace the electrolytic's with poly caps but it will still be kinda of bright. What gear you running that may affect more so than XO...
I have ran the RTiA7 crossover in a RTi10
It is an improvement, I would increase the resistance in the tweeter network ever so slightly
Aside from opening them up (I'd rather not do that), where can the specs for RTi10s be found? Not looking to do mine next week, but it would be nice to know approximate costs if I ever decide to go cap shopping...
I would just build a RTiA7 crossover, the mids and lows are incredibly superior to that of the RTI10 crossover. The highs are about the same
Thanks for all of the quick responses. Sounds like there is some hope for these speakers.
VR3 - Would your RTiA7 crossover upgrades achieve the results I am looking for?
People have reported cleaner highs that are warmer but the issue would be sourcing the inductors and would increase the cost of a build with a RTi10 but it can be done
Even though it is doable, sounds like I am better off just getting another set of speakers. Thanks for your time and expertise.
