    Default LSi Crossover Mod's

    So I know that a pair of LSi 9's can be modded with good results (and I plan on having that done eventually when I finally get a pair :)), but I was curious if anyone has done the same mod w/ the LSiC center?

    Most of the guys doing the LSi crossover mod are 2 channel folks, but was curious if anyone has done the center and if so was it worth it?

    I would personally think that if the mod for the 9's changes the clarity/tonal characteristics of how they sound sound it would throw off the timbre matching of the center when used in HT. Am I wrong in thinking this?

    Thoughts much appreciated.

    Click the link in my sig.

    Personally - for the money invested, I thought it turned out really good and I would certainly do it again.

    Edit - Ok, I guess you could also just click here...

    Edit#2 - here is a link to where I took it to a local Polk gathering... You can read a few other peoples comments on the sound compared to a stock LSiC..

    I modded an LSIc for a friend and I highly recommend it if you do your mains. Timber changes with the new caps and resistors.

    Please. Please contact me a ben62670 @ yahoo.com. Make sure to include who you are, and you are from Polk so I don't delete your email. Also I am now physically unable to work on any projects. If you need help let these guys know. There are many people who will help if you let them know where you are.
    Thanks

    I've modded a couple also. From modding, it's the most improved of the LSI series, IMO.

    I was wondering if Polkies who did the actual Lsi-C mods could Pm me with their mod prices and what the difference will result in. Thanks in advance!

    Take a look at the links in the first response. There are quite a few folks who commented on how they sounded before and after mod.

    Just got done reading them, and it didn't totally sell me on the LSi-c mod yet it left me thinking, "I wondering what it would sound like?" Judging from the many Lsi-C posts & comments, this speaker may have some short comings. I'm not ready to give up on mine just yet!

    I have a modded LSiC as part of a full HT rig that includes modded LSi9s and modded LSi7s...

    I did not run the modded 7s and 9s with an unmodded LSiC, but I can say the before to after of the whole set-up was quite noticeable, in a VERY good way!
    HT: Ninja Master LSi9s, Ninja Master LSiC, Slightly Modded LSiFXs, Modded LSi7s, Outlaw LFM-1 EX and Polk PSW125
    Outlaw 970 Preamp, Outlaw 7700 Amp, Velodyne SMS-1, Oppo BDP-83,
    2 APC H-15s and a Panamax 5400 for good measure ;)
    Stereo: DIY Alix Music Server, DODD Audio Battery Tube Buffer, Modded DAC-60 and MF V-Link (for now), DIY Silver ICs, Battery Powered Class D SDS-254 Amp, and GR-Research N2X Speakers
