Default Replacing the caps in the crossovers...

I would like to replace the capacitors in my Totem Model 1 crossover in hope of a better sound.

Can anyone advise on this?

Thanks!

They already have polypropylene bypassed with polystyrene - a difficult combination to beat.

Personally, I wouldn't change a thing.

Recently, I found that positioning the speakers to provide a full-bodied presence for the vocals is pretty difficult. I tried w/o toeing-in the speakers and it was terrible.

How do you place yours?

Thanks

I don't own these speakers and have never heard them.

If you must this may help :

but I'd regard the Totem's are well optimised and suggest
you'd probably be wasting money on expensive capacitors.

The Totem Model 1 are using Solen caps with polysterene bypass. The tweeter is using a 3.9uF caps which I planned to change to Mundorf Supreme or the Silver in Oil.

This will be my next upgrade.
