How do I tell if the capacitors are going bad?


Recommended Posts

I just bought some model 17's off of Craigslist. Pretty beat up but sound fairly good. At times the tweeters sound a little fuzzy. Is this a characteristic of these or is something amiss. I know the caps tend to go bad in these. I have not had a look inside yet, but how do I know if the caps are bad or in need of replacing?

Hi Marigold

The caps in the 17s are notoriously bad and should be replaced. There are threads here about that. Take a look inside and if they are black with red ends, replace them.
