Hi..

My Calindas crossovers are in need of a full recap. I was having problems with one of the tweeters not sounding full (hard to explain). After replacing 2 small caps (resistors?) that I thought were causing the problem, I found a post on someone elses thread on this forum about the wires on the crossover being knotted in the middle, that was the problem. Embarassed

So thats the problem solved.

I would still like a full recap and rebuild of the crossovers but looking at yesterdays soldering and messing around I wouldn't want to risk it and waste money.

Is there anyone on this forum that would be able to build me some crossovers? if I was to do it my self I might aswell throw everything in a skip.

Thanks

Paul

Where do you live and how distant would you be prepared to ship them for the task?

Also, would you procure the components yourself or would you expect it to be done by the person who recaps them?

Get the caps and resisors and ill recap your crossovers with pleasure. All you had to was ask. And ill even let you participate then you can learn along the way.
Cant say fairer than that.
