I'm going to put in an order for parts on Friday. I've decided to use Dayton Caps because the Sonicaps will break the bank.
After much thought and research, I've decided to perform the upgrade on the stock crossover boards. I know I gave many around here a hard time about keeping the originals intact, but as one guy mentioned, it wouldn't be hard to put the original parts back in.
I will document the process as best as I can with photographs to add to the other really helpful threads on this upgrade.
I'll undoubtedly need the help of those willing throughout this entire process. I am very much new to this and will ask many very "obvious" questions that aren't so obvious to me. Please bare with me!
First, I'd like for you guys to confirm my parts list.
Perform the "TL Mod" to my SDA-2B's
2x 12uF Dayton Capacitors Link These are the correct ones right? These have to be matched as well? Can I order these from Dayton matched? Please advise...
2x 20 uF Dayton Capacitors Link
2x 40uF Dayton Capacitors Link
2x 2.7ohm 12-watt Mills resistors for the polyswitch? I read somewhere that these are unnecessary? Please advise...
I'm going to have to wait on purchasing the tweeters for about a month because I don't have the dough to shell out on them. Can I install the items listed above and keep the RDO-194's in until the cash becomes available?
For future purchase (about a month).
2x 5.8uF Capacitors. Not sure what to do here. These have to be custom made and "matched" correct? Please advise...
2x RDO-198 Tweeters
Guys, I seriously appreciate the help. Also, special thanks to Ones&Zero's for the help on putting this list together.
