I'm going to have to disagree with you here. They may be voiced to a certain degree but Vandersteen is limited to the parts that are available. They are not having custom caps manufactured. The crossovers in my 2 speakers are using the exact same parts. They could have found 2 sets of drivers that were closely matched and then 'voiced' the crossovers using the same parts. Some of the parts they used were good quality others were not. For instance the resisters are not wire wound, some of the caps are cheap electrolytics.
And just for the record, I never said or meant to suggest that I improved the sound of the speakers from what they were originally. The crossovers had some seriously damaged parts that were negatively impacting the sound, I replaced the damaged parts and noticed a vast improvement in the sound quality compared to the way the speakers sounded with the damaged parts.
Would the speakers sound even better had I returned them to Vandersteen? Possibly, IMHO I don't think so. I wasn't willing to pay the price to have 2 large speakers shipped to Vandersteen and back plus the cost for them to repair them.
