I ran across this site while researching other speakers and equipment. The info I got here was top notch. Thank you.
I recently came down with a terrible bug. I believe it's called audiophile-itous. I've found that this "bug" tends to consume large amounts of cash. So far, I've purchased a Sansui AU-919, a Technics PL-1700 mk2 and a pair of Boston VR-M50s. This all started because I wanted to put my old records onto disc. What was I thinking? Oh well, it's too late now. Oh, I also just ordered a Martin Logan dynamo sub. Does it ever end?
I own a pair of monitor 7a's that I picked up at an auction 15 years ago for (I think) $20. The cabinets are a little rough but the speakers are in excellent condition. I've read several posts about upgrading the crossovers and many here tend to like the sonic brand. I figure that it would cost about $100 per speaker for the caps, resistors, mortite, ect.
If it do the upgrade, how will they sound as compared to other speakers that I could buy (used) for around the same ($200-$300) price?
One more thing. Are these 4 or 8 ohm speakers (when I get done with them). Right now they're reading about 4.8 ohms. If I run 2 sets of speakers with my Sansui, the both have to be 8 ohm. That may influence my decision to rebuild them.
