    I suspect there is a photo or link missing from ROHfan's post. More than likely to the eBay kit that is available for 10B speakers. I won't post the link because I might be putting words in his mouth.

    Hi, I did get it from ebay, about 3 to 4 years ago. It was just a basic kit, with instructions on how to solder the capacitors, resistors and polyswitche. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Polk-Crossov...item35bdbf5624 Thanks..

    No, that's not where you got it. I don't sell kits.

    That is basically a refresh of what came on your crossovers originally. Not really an "upgrade" or a "downgrade" but a refresh of the old components.

    VR3 is correct.

    If you want an upgrade go with Sonicap Gen 1 film caps/Mills resistors, or Clarity Cap ESA's, etc. IMO if it's worth doing it's worth doing well. You'll probably hear an improvement with Bennic because the orginal components are way past their prime. Using higher quality components will take those speaks to a whole other level.
