Default Rtl3 special edition upgrade

Hello all,
I have just bought a pair of rtl3 s e Speakers and my first impressions are mixed. I love the bass, so deep. But the Treble and soundstage have completly gone! I`m not sure if i`m expecting too much, but i cant live without it. Any ideas to what i should do? Try upgrading the tweeters,but will thay always be lacking in sondstage and treble compared to my B & W 602 s3?

Thanks in advance
Ian

Hi,
I agree with your synopsis of the sound of the RTLS.
The soudnstage is large - but undefined.
Falcon Acoustics suggested:
"The tweeters we would suggest are the Vifa D27TG. These are nice and smooth and give good stereo imaging. Details (p.d.f.file) on the web site Page 10. "
However, I didn't do the mod, as they looked like they would need some major butchering to the cabinet to make them work...
(ie - If it didn't work, I wouldn't be able to sell them...)
If anyone has done a tweeter mod on some RTL3s - I love to know more also!
Cheers,
Paul.

Any chance of either of you two sorting out a schema for the crossover? I can't remember mine well enough to comment, but it might be possible just to tweak the pad on the tweeter to get a little more level.

Default schema

Hi,
I woul'nt have the technical knowledge to create a crossover schema, sorry.
Mine Have the 100mm tweeter, and i would like to hear from anyone who has upgraded this version.
Also how they might compare to my B&W 602s3.

What i have done is connect both speakers at the same time, using the tweeter on the 602's and Bass of the RTL3's. Sounds good, but the girlfriend hates 4 speakers in the living room

Cheers
Ian

Default RTL3 X-over design

Hi,

Apologies if this double-posts - having a bit of an argument with the site (over cookies I think...)

I hope this doesn't seem a bit cheeky (lazy even!), but I have no idea what I am doing electronically, but would love to upgrade the X-over on my RTL3s.
I now have from this list:
1) a schematic of the X-over,
2) Capacitor values of 6uf for the tweeter and 10uf for the woofer.
3) An option to add a "Multicap RTX 0.01uf" in parrallel for the tweeter. (Good idea??? - I have no idea...)
4) Coil replacement with "Solo CFAC" units. ( Comments? - A good idea?)
5) Dont know what the 10R / 10W bit on the schematic even is...

I am grateful for comments on the merit (& completeness!) of the above design-mod by Jo Luk, and if poss.....
Could some kind person tell me something like the RS-Components part numbers or something for the bits, as I have no idea how to select high quality hi-fi bits from the miriad of electronic options! (Told you I was new here...)

Thanks,
Paul.

The 10R 10W is a resistor (R=ohms, W=watts).

Default tdl rtl clone?

Hi Vikash,
l beleive it was you who some 12 mths to 2 yrs ago posted some pics of a tdl rtl cab rebuild which l would like to emulate by cloning a pr of rtl's as the links on your later posts no longer work l wonder if you would be kind enough to share the design with me as l would like to clone the design because l have four similar spec drivers to the monacors used in the rtl cabs and would like a quick n easy project as l am'slightly physically handicapped since suffering a stroke 6 yrs ago
thanks Tomcat
