ReggaeBen Posted December 18, 2018 Report Share Posted December 18, 2018 G'day all Just for interest I thought I'd do a recap of one speaker and give a listen to compare with the original. I had on hand PE non-polar lytic's and a Vishay mkp 1837 .01uf. This model didnt have the 5 position switch oddly but a series of two , 3 watt resistors and an 8uf Jensen cap, not the 5uf. Drivers are Alnico. After the very quick and simple recap here is what I found. A clear but bright sound with higher output, as opposed to the more relaxed, open but not as clear sound of the original. The original is a warm sounding cap. After a few hrs the shrill had tamed a little but I wasn't yet convinced they would stay. I decided to take it out and put back in the Jensen but try the bypass on its own, and so I did with both. So far sounding good, warm but with a sprinkle of detail. A little shrill but I'll give them a little time. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
