I recently made various upgrades to my Studio 2B's. Since there have been a few questions recently about doing similar mods I thought I'd post some notes about my process. Most of this information has been covered elsewhere, so hopefully this isn't just adding noise, and I'll be linking to other threads where some steps are given better treatment than I could manage. As much as anything else, I'm doing this to consolidate links to the best posts on how to perform some of these mods.
Unfortunately, I'm doing this after the fact, and I'm not especially good about taking pictures as I work so it'll be light in that regard. But again, most of the heavy lifting has been done by others, and I'm just aggregating info. Maybe we need to start a Polk wiki somewhere.
Also, this is going to be limited by my experience, which wasn't necessarily typical, and I've definitely got a lot to learn. I hope folks will jump in and say what could have been done better. I'll try to leave enough space in between posts so that can happen.
Here's what I think will get covered:
1) Deciding what upgrades to make
3) The 2B TL crossover upgrade using Gimpod's custom PCBs
4) J-B Weld on the MW magnets
5) Dynamat on the MWs and PRs
6) New mounting hardware for the MWs and PRs (Rings)
7) New binding posts (and one for the IC)
