I really enjoy the way they sound now. I am leery of changing for the change's sake because I'm keenly aware the subjective nature. I will purchase a pair of type E crossovers and rebuild them so going back will be an option. Are the type of capacitor that came with these available new? If so should I?

Yes @henry4841, I think this is the only question pending at the moment. I did not see how old these are.


I will leave it to you, @Deang and others to get into this.

I am staying out of serious capacitor discussion. Any brand of capacitor you change to is going to produce a different sound if you hearing is good enough to notice. Change if one must but doubtful if any of the caps in OP speakers are actually what a technician would call bad.

Then why change anything? The old "if it ain't broke why fix it."

Because it will eventually break. I turn wrenches on Harleys. Been doing it long enough that I remember when they deserved that reputation of high maintenance. And I tend to apply that everywhere. Keeps me from having to wonder if I'm worrying about that device. I just know if I need it it will fail eventually. That doesn't bother me. it's when I cannot fix it that does.

Yeah, replace them now and you don’t have to think about anymore. Henry is right, they are probably not “bad”, but they are certainly on their way out. 

Jim did a nice a job on that page. We speak often and we are very much aligned.
