    Default monitor 5b upgrade tweeter to sl 2500 or sl3000?

    I have some monitor 5b's that I put new MW in and have some extra sl 2500 and 3000 laying around and was thinking on putting one or the other in, what additions to the x-over is needed? or is it a waste of time and should just leave the fish eyes in?

    Thanks.

    Put some RD0194-1's in and call it a day.

    Given that you have the SL3000's hanging around... The sticky link has the schematics. I don't know which revision your 5B's are but here is the schematic for the SL3000 mod.
