I'm torn between tacking this into an existing inductor thread and derailing it...or starting yet another thread and maybe duplicate a lot of what's been covered already.
ALL of the recent inductor replacement discussion is with the one-per-cabinet, large inductor on the ground side of the SDA drivers...right? For the newer speakers, this seems to be the same value inductor--16 mH; but on my SDA 1B it's listed as 9.6 mH.
Nobody is playing with the much smaller inductors in the tweeter circuits (often .4 or .7 mH); or the inductor on the + side of the mid-woofers--typically 1 to 2 mH?
It'd be easy enough--and not so expensive--to replace the tweeter and MW inductors, I get the sense that there's various reasons (of which I am ignorant) to NOT change them. Correct? If not, and if an "audiophile approved" inductor change will improve the sound quality...I have some interest in replacing a .4 mH inductor that drives the top tweeter in my 1Bs, while leaving the existing .4 mH which in combination with a resistor, bleeds current off directly to the - terminal. Lower DCR in the tweeter-driving inductor would boost the tweeter volume slightly, and in my case that'd be a good thing: I'd hope for a clarity improvement as well. Lower DCR in the second inductor would bleed more current, tending to reduce the volume of the tweeters, and making life more difficult for the amp. Would replacing one but not the other "unbalance" the high-frequency crossover? Do those inductors need to have near-identical characteristics for some reason?
I don't know what to think about the small inductors in the + side of the MW circuits.
