I have a little over the $200 Brian mentioned in his initial post. Prices have gone up a smidge since then but it is still ballpark.
I went with Solen caps, Madisound Sidewinder inductors and Mills resistors.
I didn't touch the stuffing at all.
My next step with them is to dynamat the baskets. But I have a bunch of dynamat left over from a friend's car so that cost is minimal. I am also seriously considering a set of rings for them. I already have hurricane nuts but am on the fence vs doing the rings.
If it were me I'd get the Solens out of the high pass section. Never been a fan of those in that position.
just my .02
So far, I don't have any complaints. It is a huge imporvement over stock to my ears.
I am actually going to track down a second set of terminal cups and do foil inductors with Sonicaps. Then I can do A/B comparisons. Having the plug on there makes experimentation a snap.
I REALLY need to do up my review. Listening to some Miles Davis...oh hell yeah...
I look forward to your write up. And yes, I lay the small inductor over to avoid interference. Very fun speaker to tweek and easy to work on.
What do you think of the foil inductors cincy?
I plan on tracking down a couple more sets of terminal cups and making some variations. Foils inductors is one of the things I want to try.
Is this still your preferred or current list of upgrade components for the 15tl?
2 x 13.5 uF (2 x 12 uF + 2 x 1.5 uF) caps
2 x 12 uF caps
2 x 10 uF caps
2 x 1.75 mH, 16 awg inductors
2 x 0.22 mH, 19 awg inductors
2 x 2.7 ohm resistors
2 x 0.5 ohm resistors
Thanks a bunch.
