    Question RTA11TL Crossover

    I'm thinking about replacing the capacitors in my RTA11TL crossovers.
    Does anyone know the values?
    I popped it open to check, but the yellow cap (in parallel with a 12mf electrolytic) is unmarked. I'm thinking of replacing this pair with a single metalized poly if possible.
    I found a thread on RTA11T upgrade to "TL" which hinted that this may be 16mf (total) but I'm not sure.
    Also- the resistor is unmarked.

    Has anyone done a crossover update on this speaker?

    Default Thanks!

    16mf mylar in the tweeter's signal path...

    Looks like mine have a 12mf electrolytic + 4 mf mylar (in parallel).

    I'm guessing that a single 16mf metalized poly would be an improvement.

    Thanks

    Yes a single 16uf is better than the 12 and 4 tied together.

    Thumbs up Clarification

    I was referring to how Polk wired up my crossovers-
    they have a 12mf electro soldered in parallel with the 4mf mylar - the leads are soldered together. These are the two I'm thinking of replacing with a single 16mf.

    There is another 12mf in parallel with the resistor- for that one, I'm planning to use another 12mf poly.

    (also a 34mf poly for the woofer)

    Thanks.
