    Upgrading the components on your crossovers are a must do.

    Is there a thread "for dummies" that I can follow/research. I love the rt3000p's and the cs1000p for what they are... but that doesn't mean they can't get better. I never imagined that the 3000's would be such a huge step forward over the other speakers I have had in the past. So if I can make them better I'm all for it. thanks rich

    There are a lot of threads on crossover upgrades, but I don't recall seeing one for your speakers. Basically, it involves replacing the caps and resistors with ones of higher quality. The upgrades will make a vast improvement in the sound. If you're not up for doing them yourself, you might want to talk with member VR3.

    ok westmassguy, what are guys doing to the rt3000p's to improve sound, I assume I have to mod the tops and the bottoms. I would also like to mod the cs1000p to match.

    DHS speaker service....Is what I found when I goggled(polk xover mod). Apparently he is a member here/has a web site dedicated to moding xovers/has a ebay "buy it now" service for mods. I guess I figured because he was a member everybody would know who he was. thanks for the help.....rich

    explain this to me .I know Dynamat is a sound deadening material mostly used in car interiors.Now I do not hear any rattles,scraping ,just movement of the surrounds themselves w/ my 2b s so if none of the usual suspects are noticed when and why would you do this. Forget about x-overs and cables for a moment, just this stuff.

    In this application, Dynamat adds mass to the light weight, stamped steel basket frames Polk used. Light weight steel can "ring" or resonate when exposed to certain frequencies. When these frequencies excite the frame, within the range of human hearing, it can make it's way out through the cone or passive radiator, and distort or smear the image. Pull one of your woofers and tap on it. You'll hear a distinct ringing sound. Once the Dynamat is applied, the added mass mitigates the ringing. You can't eliminate it completely, without re-designing the entire woofer. The Dynamat reduces it to a level that most people cannot hear, or is masked by the music.
