Heresy E networks W- Dayton 1% capacitors

Recommended Posts

Trying to help fund one of my projects.

 

Crossovers are clean as they came from a sealed Heresy cabinet, caps are just a couple months old and used less than 1 hour.

 

Pictures coming soon.

 

$75 + actual shipping cost.

 

Local pickup is fine, shipped items will be double boxed to assure safe delivery.

I've never seen a naked Heresy XO before.  That is a very simple crossover for a 3-way.

Yes, here is the schematic. Link

 

The old oil capacitors sounded like crap, these brought a nice sound back to the old Heresy's.

I wonder if these are the capacitors used for this Type E upgrade.  Thanks for any comments.

I don't know what to do with my Heresy I's to improve the sound - I've read and researched until I have a headache, but these caps are only $2.41 ea so what the heck?  Seems worth a try if this is the correct one.  Thanks.

Thanks - I'm glad I saw your post.  Good luck selling your Type E's.  I'm going to give this a try!  My Heresy's are original everything and they just don't sound like they should.  seems like all I'm hearing is the squaker.  I hope it's b/c those oil cans are 40 years old.

GL with sale.  FYI, there are 3 Heresy cabinet only pairs for sale on ebay right now. The cheapest set is $50 I think. These networks would be perfect if somebody wanted to make a Heresy out of parts. Although you should use the Heresy horns, the diaphragms and the woofer can be changed in them to yield a great speaker.

 

Here are the cabs:

This schematic shows the K-22-E at 11 ohms.  I'm sure it's 8 ohms, isn't it?  Sorry I know this is the wrong forum!
