ALCAPs and ELCAPs were both bipolar electrolytic capacitors from different suppliers.

I'm afraid I don't know much about the construction of this type of capacitor so I can't say for certain what ...

What capacitance was that? I doubt 80 uF Alcap could have been paper type.

Around 10F.

I opened an ALCAP capacitor this week end. This came from a KEF crossover from early 90's. I always thought those ALCAP were electrolytics but this one appears to be a film/paper type. Is this the cas ...

. but some say the T33 is not that great and was a distant second to the T27.




I've listened to the T33. In my opinion, it's unquestionably one of the worst tweeters I've ever heard.

On whi ...

Well...I don't use stands or resonance devices..and I'm quiet happy with the results. I don't have the boomyness you are talking about.

PostForum: LS3/5a   Posted: Wed Feb 14, 2007 11:07 pm   Subject: KEF LS3/5A...?
Hello,
I was just wondering why KEF did not manufacture LS3/5A before the 90's Raymond Cook version (I think) ? Any specific reason ? Question of right/license ?

Thanks

Olivier
