I recently purchased a pair of Monitor 7Bs, a craigslist steal for $35. These came with the beveled fronts, crossovers without the external fuse and the dreaded SL-2000 tweeters
I'm finding the SL-2000s a little too aggressive, so I have located a pair of Peerless tweeters on eBay and hope to have them in hand soon.
I'm aware that I will have to made modifications to the tweeter hole in the front of the speaker and am planning to saw out a larger opening to accommodate what I assume will be a larger circumference magnet.
My question is, what modifications do I need to make to the crossovers in order for them to be compatible with the Peerless tweeters? My guess is it's a different resistor, which would alter the crossover frequency.
Can I retrofit my current crossovers or will I need to search for a pair of vintage 7A crossovers?
Lastly, is this a worthwhile project (since the used Peerlesses are cheaper than a new pair of RDO-194's)? It seems I'm searching for a legendary sound akin to a sonic holy grail. Is this a fool's errand or am I on a reasonable trek?
Any assistance or advise will be gratefully accepted. Thank you in advance.
