This is my first post and I should have posted earlier but, I am kinda shy.
I recently stumbled upon 4 sda 1-c's along with a vintage Denon and pre-amp for a very good price;) Thanks to fellow polkie sucks2beme.
I have one of these pairs up and running and I just luv em!
The problem is with the second pair. They did not come with a interconnect cable and one of the binding posts was broken. On top of that, the crossover was knocked loose on the inside of the cabinet, and was hanging.
Since I have the crossover out, I am thinking why not go ahead and upgrade it while I am at it. Can anyone point me into the right direction of a link to some suggested capacitor upgrades? I do not have an extensive electonics background but, I think I can handle a soldering iron.
Once I have upgraded the crossover, is there a rule on where to secure it? Originally it was secured to the coil but, the plastic connectors that were attached to the circuit board have broke off. Would it be ok to somehow secure it to the side of the side of the inside of the cabinet with a couple of screws??
Now on to the next problem. Any suggestions for some beefier binding posts?
The stock posts seem to be on the cheap side so, I am thinking that I should upgrade all of them while I am at it.(Links would be greatly appreciated)
Now to the cable dilema. The cable that I need is the pin/blade style. If anyone has upgraded their sda's and do not have use for their old one, I would gladly take it off their hands. But, I guess if I have to , I would have to make a "homemade version". I would appreciate any suggestions in this area also.:)
