It looks like it's going to be a partially rainy weekend here in North Texas so I think I'll start on my SRS2's now. First off is to find out the exact crossover parts I need and get those ordered. Most likely I will use the Solen caps and Mills resistors again since they worked out so well in the 1C's. I thought about doing the tweeters first instead of the crossovers but I'm still deliberating.
Also, you can see in the pictures the black paint (or whatever it is) that someone used on these many years ago as they were built into a huge wall shelving system in an equally large living room. They painted the front edges of the cabinet and a small part of the top along with the lip of the base plate. I'm going to remove the base plate first and experiment with some "Strip-Eaze" to see if it will lift the paint. Kind of odd that they did this but maybe it won't be a complete pain in the ass. Fortunately, the rest of the cabinets are perfect and everything is intact. I'll need to remove and replace that heavy/thick grill cloth soon and use something more acoustically transparent. I typically listen to them with the grills off so it's not a major concern right now. Like the 1C's, there is what seems like 10 extra feet of speaker wire inside that I'll shorten up when I do the crossovers. I was listening to some music one night that had a some low bass drum tones that went from left to right and I could hear noises out of the right speaker. Took the passive out and some of the mid/woofer wires were up against the PR. Each mid will come out of the cabinet about 2 feet with the wires attached. Just like the 1C's were.
Any recommendations about removing the paint would be greatly appreciated.
But hey, how can you gripe about these for only $200 a pair!
