    Default Recapping - how noticeable of an improvement?

    I'm about to embark on recapping the crossovers on my Monitor 10s

    This is the first time I'm ever upgrading speakers, so I'm a bit excited (and nervous). How noticeable / audible of an improvement will there be? How would you describe the difference in sound? Any real "success stories"?

    It can have a dramatic effect on your speakers. So much so that you will think you bought new ones.

    It will depend greatly on the caps and resistors used, but any film/foil cap will be an improvement over the stock electrolytic.
