I do know that it makes me happy to know the parts I use are more than adequate. I used mundorfs step below the supremes in a pair of Q75 to rebuild the xovers and was very happy so picked up a pair of reference Kefs of the same era and figured I would see how far I could take them with the same approach.That being said is it the best value proposition probably not.
I was being sarcastic.

I actually believe expensive caps do make a difference. But most of the time, I am so good at optimize my xover that they don't make that much difference or not much that it matters. Also my hearing at high freq. is pretty crappy they I probably can't hear the difference anyway. The only question is if the power specs of the low end cap are good enough to handle the power.
Low end caps like those surplus sold by Madisound like who knows since you don't know their specs and they look sort of out of place on my optimized xovers. I am weird in a sense that part of the reason I like high end caps because of their looks. I believe it's more important for high end audio to look good first then sound good in that order. Products from Sonus Faber and Dynaudio is probably 80% looks + 20% sound. I once listened to a pair of Sonus Faber which to me sounds pretty good, but then I went home and listen to mine and they are not all that different (not to mention my cheap home audio gears are an order of magnitude less expensive than those paired with Sonus Faber at the demo room). But I have to admit Sonus Faber speakers are the most sensual, seductive, and killer looking than any out there. They just have that perfect proportion. I ran my hands over those speakers and I swear my girl friend was no comparison.
