Thanks to Las I have an extra pair of Monitor 5B x-overs on the way. I figured it would be easier to swap out another set of caps and resistors in 2nd x-over than to tear into the current set with Solens.
This time I'm looking at Madisound as they are just across the border and perhaps shipping will be less, plus I want to use them as I already know PE is excellent.
I see Madisound now carries Mundorf wire wound non-inductive resistors and I just can't resist trying them out. Anybody used them? Have any details?
Not sure what caps I'm going to use. I don't mind spending a little bit more than the what I paid for the Solens, but I don't want to go crazy here. I see they have the Jantzen caps and Bennic caps. I'm just wanting to experiment with a different cap and see for myself if the Solens are as harsh as people say.
I may go with another higher end cap for the tweeter and keep the Solens in the low pass. That might be the most cost effective.
I also just won a pair of LSi 7's on ebay and I may mess around with the x-overs in those. Didn't Doro or someone say there is almost no room on the PC board in the LSi's for mods or was that just the LSi 15 with it's side firing woofer?
Anyways discuss please.
