  1. @TonyTrex57 Hi Tony, what kind of help are looking for?
  2. @ronajon The first picture is a 2uF measured using 1kHz. The second picture is the same can measured at 100kHz. This particular can is also sweating, with a light film on the outside that you can feel and smell. A new 2uF Tecate measures .42 - .45 It’s just my opinion, but I think this part is nearing the end of its life cycle. Some are fine for use while others are not. While you don’t have to replace them, the network will be back in spec, and the speakers will sound better if you do. I don’t sell capacitor kits. Please contact JEM if this is something that interests you.
  3. @ronajon I use 1kHz for the smaller values and 120Hz anything above 4uF. The spec sheet for the capacitors Klipsch uses states 1kHz for their DF spec.
  4. Using the chart, one can see why measuring at 100kHz doesn’t make much sense for capacitors used in loudspeaker networks.
  5. Another meter that uses 100kHz. This is from the manual that came with my B&K 880. Also a chart. Notice how the ESR decreases with frequency - regardless of the dielectric material.
  6. That capacitor is probably bad. If you measured using 120Hz or 1KHz, that reading would be 3-5 times higher.
  7. They look better than ‘7’. Any chips, scratches, or water stains? Thanks, Dean
  8. Lol. I’m glad you aren’t building networks for a living.
  9. Would love to see someone do a build like mine in an hour, I would hire them.
  10. It should make sense that if you make physical changes to the loudspeaker you will hear changes to the loudspeaker. No surprise there. The problem is that without measurements, you have no idea what is going on. You have nothing to tell you why you are hearing what you are hearing. Something can curve terrible and a person will tell you how great it sounds.
  11. I guess you’re being facetious.
  12. Too bright. Wrong capacitors and autoformers for the design.
