  1. I'm looking to recap a pair of AR-3a's I have. I understand that involves 50 uf and 150 uf caps as well as a smaller ones. Frankly, those larger sizes can really get expensive with the foil and other types of caps. Is it pure heresy to use an eletrolytic NPE cap in the crossover? I realize they don't have the longevity the other caps have, but when the cost is 10% or less of the other options and funds are tight, I'd like to know what the ramifications are? I understand that originally AR used NPE electrolytic caps in some of their speakers. Will it work...for awhile at least? Will the sound be improved over the originals that now inhabit the cabinet? I'm sure a pair of $50 or $150 caps would be marvelous, but at some point the budget just won't bear that. This is a NPE electrolytic I'm considering: http://www.parts-express.com/pe/showdetl.cfm?partnumber=027-364 Comments?
  2. Hi, I bought some original large advents(I believe) I like the sound but they have some problems. When the high frequency switch is turned to anything but extended there is no output from the tweeter. It looks to me as if they are OLAs that the tweeters has been replaced in. If so, how should I go about updating the crossover? -Thanks
