    I looked at the pictures of the crossover and was thinking the caps looked the same, as in the same manufacturer -- not the values, I didn't look at those. Sorry, I should have been clearer!

    My Polk 4's are also early models, but slightly newer than yours according to the serial numbers (#05820 on one of them). I posted pictures of them on the board last year. The crossover uses the...

    As a life-long Pats fan I've seen them take some pretty bad beatings at the hands of the Elway-era Broncs, especially in Denver. The 2013-14 Broncos - while an exceptional team this year - is not...

    That's a nice little project, thanks for posting the photos. I didn't know about the 3M VHB tape, looks like a better way to go than hot glue. Do you pick it up at Staples, or at a specialty store?

    Looks like a fine Sansui tuner hanging out at the bottom of the rack too. I'd like to hear the Sansui 1000/2000/4000 series sometime.

    Very nice...! I would have arm-wrestled you for that S-3000 V, I would love to hear that model.

    I want to try them stacked on my 10-B's (currently in use by my son).

    Thanks for the info, is that typical for this sort of two-way design with these tweeters?

    Seems quite likely the current caps have drifted high by now. What do you think, would it be likely to...

    Thanks for posting these. Looks like the date on the m4a original schematic is 1984, so unfortunately this is later than the ones I have. Also they list MW6502's. I didn't write down the value of...

    I thought folks might like to see these. I am guessing these are early models, from what I've been able to research. The crossovers are marked 14 Jul 1982. Peerless tweeters and MW6500 woofers. ...
