    Default SRS Rebuild

    My latest original SRS rebuild. I've done SRSs before, but used fresh NP Electrolytics where needed, do to size and price. I prefer the Sonicap/Mills/Dayton combination, as it presents a very smooth sound. I could have gone with Sonicaps for the shunts, but the price would have more than doubled, and there would be a mountain of caps to deal with. If I'd gone with Clarity, the PX caps for the shunts would have required a separate, remote mounting due to their enormous size (why are they so big?). All existing Inductors were retained due to cost considerations. I had to modify and extend the existing standoffs and add several more for proper support for the new riser board. I prefer to work with Masonite for my supplimental riser and remote mounting boards. It's old school, inexpensive, easy to work with, and avalable everywhere. Work on the existing board was easy. New caps were installled and secured with 3M VHB tape, and cyanoacrylate where possible. New OFC, 14 gauge extension wires were installed for the relocated large value caps. Some resistors were relocated to the underside of the board for space considerations. The Large Dayton Caps were secured to the riser board with 3M VHB tape, and Nylon Wire Ties. Cardas Quad Eutectic Solder was used throughout.
    All spade connectore were re-tensioned and treated with DeoxIT. New RDO-194-1 Tweeters were installed along with the rebuilt crossovers. Needless to say, the sound is incredible.

    Thanks. It may seem a daunting task, but like most things, if you break it down to individual steps, it's easier to deal with.
