Thanks for the relays and advice.
It seams that in the amp I can just put in and bypass any good quality cap for the speaker coupling. how much smaller should the bypass cap be in the speaker coupling.
in the speakers I it seams that I will gain by just refreshing the caps. But I think I'll experiment and try some different combinations. But the best option seams like a good poly to the tweeter. Good electrolytic over the bass.
thanks
Tom

rgds, sreten.
And yet using a statement that is untrue to define something doesn't make it accurate either. Generally 'in the signalpath' means in series to most users of the phrase. Since this is not DC and current flows both ways, all components are in the signal path. Acceptance of a term is one thing, accuracy of a description is another.

I'm not nitpicking nor trying to split hairs, just stating the facts. Due to the current definition of 'in the signal path' being misconstrued, it should be just stated as 'in series', even though parallel component quality still matters.

Now back to capacitors...

Hi,

True, strictly speaking its in series or it isn't. But TBH can you really
consider an LCR across a tweeter to damp Fs impedance below the
x/o frequency "in the signalpath" ? Accuracy is understanding.

rgds, sreten.

It is in the circuit's signal path; whether it's out-of-bandwidth or in-bandwidth is another issue.

Would I think an NPE wrong for an LCR for out of bandwidth- no.

(It really sounds like you think I don't know/understand what I'm doing, and it's not the first time you've tried correcting me.)

Just stating the facts....

Wolf :

Hi,

I'm not trying to correct you, whilst the simple facts are correct they
don't tell the whole truth, as you well know, as said above it is IMO
nitpicking given the use of the term by the OP was pretty clear.

Of course I don't think you don't know / understand what you are doing.

I didn't address my last post to anyone in particular, whilst series and
parallel is a clear fact, "in the signalpath" or not, is much more debatable,
hence my example, and the implication you need to understand that.

In no way was I implying that you don't know that, but some people don't.

rgds, sreten.
