there are a lot of possible reasons why someone might not hear a difference when replacing old crossover caps but that does not mean that a difference was not made. Never the less changing out very old caps is a good idea for a purely maintenance point of view, any time after thirty years is a wise plan. If you have a hi rez system you don't need to wait that long to enjoy the improvement, capacitor technology is fast moving.
lol. My 17 year old daughter says she can't hear the difference between my system upstairs (Radian Coaxials) and my LaScalas in the basement.
My oldest daughter, who grew up watching me do all of this stuff, asked me what I did when I put silver speaker cables into the system. But she spent a lot of time in front of that system -- she could normally tell when I changed something.
Yeh, I haven't tried them with the original drivers (I think Volti is missing out by making the adapter so expensive), but the change with the BMS was startling. This SET is really revealing as well. It's pointing a big accusatory finger at my crossovers.
How can any wife complain about free Jubs!!!
I would do a LOT for my community and county if I were to win $1B walking money.
$10 million REC sports complex
$200 million county wide all new high school football multi sport stadiums
$50 million county wide added AP curriculum with full tech/science labs for all
$100 million allotted for gifts in education and healthcare on an as needed basis but no more than 5 million in any given year.
Well, that's a third of it given away.
@kraig Most likely it was for no other reason than they had a surplus of the 12uf's to get the value they needed or maybe because the voltage capability on a single cap wasn't strong enough so they used two. You just never know. There could be some out there with a 20uf and 4uf on them.
