  1. Zener diodes... Okay, now that makes sense as to their placement and connection.
  2. Thanks! I enjoy them all day, every day. Properly placed, I think they hold their own with the HIP pro version.
  3. This. Exactly this. Buy a set of B networks and replace the caps on those. Swap one into either side, and do the old A/B comparison. See what you think, as the new caps might alleviate the slight niggles you have, and you can always put them back to bone stock in minutes. You won’t lose money on the second set...
  4. Nice summary. After going this route myself, I’m seriously happy with the outcome. @Zitan We can assist you with the tech and soldering, which is easy if you follow a few basic rules.
  5. Welcome to the forum, and I will try my best to answer some of your questions from my own meager store of knowledge. 1. If you like the original sound, stick with the Crites replacements. If you want to experiment, go with the ALK offering. Part2: All I know about the second part of question 1 is: Good caps will definitely affect what you hear. Part3: From my reading, it seems to be okay to send shorter signal impulses to a driver, but not lower frequencies than what they are rated for. It will not “matter” if you replace the k-77 with the Crites. You may get more volume from the new tweets. Part4: No idea. 2. If the high frequencies are important to you, then by all means get new tweeters. An experiment for you: Go to YouTube and find a frequency sweep. Take note of just how high the notes are for the tweeter. As for me, I have tinnitus, so ultra high frequencies do nothing for me. 3. The 55G is supposed to be better, but I have no direct experience with them. Think about this: We live in the midrange. Human voices, and the “meat” of the music is in this range, so I think you have more bang for your buck here. 4. There are more options for the woofer. I modified one pair of my Heresies into “Super Heresies”, following a thread in this sub forum. It might give you more insight about possibilities. There is also another thread called Super Heresy 2.0 you should read after the V1 below.
  6. I’m going to guess naval jelly or the like... I have a stupid newb question: What is the thing in front of the coil on the bottom left of the board? Are those resistors, or something else?
  7. I was going to ask this, and then hit google first: Does anyone have a schematic for a KP-3002 / KP-302 2 way? I would be very appreciative, as my 3002's aren't accessible without a ton of work to pull the crossovers. And then I found a schematic. You can tell from the different instructions added on that the original modder put in his notes:
  8. Fantastic job, that. You should be proud / happy with the results!

    Car Thread

    Here's our car, it's a LOT of fun! Only 550 HP out of a 5 liter supercharged engine. The interior is incredible. It has the optional refrigerator, back seat videos in the headrests, and a huge sunroof. It is fun to be at a stoplight beside some "boy racer", and smoke him on the green. https://www.motortrend.com/news/2010-range-rover-sport-autobiography/ 2010 Range Rover Sport Auto Biography - 2009 Los Angeles Auto Show - Motor Trend Like the Range Rover Sport Supercharged, the Autobiography Limited Edition -- debuting at the Los Angeles Auto Show -- is refreshed for 2010. That means much more powerful engines and tweaked styling. www.motortrend.com
  10. I've been watching this ad on Offerup for quite a while now. They started at $150 (I think), then dropped them to $100. Then $80. Finally at $50 I couldn't stand it any longer. I replied to the advertisement. The spec sheet looked really good, so I bought the pair of Fender 2841's for $40. Just something to goof around with. Similar specs, size, and shape as my KP-3002. The little "butt cheeks" horns sealed the deal. I couldn't help myself. I will post actual pictures once I get them out of the car and set up somewhere for testing. I also got a Behringer "guitar" style amp for $20 that is missing a couple of knobs. This pic is of the same make, but in a little cleaner shape: @Emile
  11. Please try the posting site that's in my signature. It works well, and it's free and unlimited.
  12. I'm surprised that I didn't find Klipsch earlier than I did, to be honest. My brother in law (think well to do lawyer) was going to donate everything in a storage unit, and told us if we wanted anything, take it. There was a pair of KG4 in pristine shape, so I got them to try out. Wow, was I glad I did. They sounded better than nearly everything I've ever heard in the "home speaker" category (and better than a lot of "pro" gear). I bought a second pair of them, also in perfect condition. The Bose 901's went bye-bye very quickly. I'm now listening to Fleetwood Mac on a fully Klipsch Pro 7.1 system in my office as I type this. My wife loves the Epic CF3's. The list keeps getting longer. *<;o)
