Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

The original caps were Callins electrolytics that cost pennies each (Callins made the best electrolytic crossover caps, but they had a short lifespan), some budget film caps that cost a couple of dollars each will be a vast improvement.

I would spend a couple of bucks and replace the level controls too.

After you solder in the new controls, give them a squirt of De-Oxit (heat degrades De-Oxit).

If they still don't have enough sparkle for you, spend $100 each on new diaphragms from GPA. Aluminum work-hardens over time and degrades the response.
