Replace the caps as per Alan's ordering instructions.

Fit ESR compensating resistors as per Alan's ordering instructions.

Replace the binding posts. Remember that there is an aluminium plate on the current ones that will short out your speakers unless new binding posts are isolated from it.

Sit back, relax, enjoy! You've got one of the most pleasing pairs of loudspeakers ever made, improved beyond compare...
Hi Lucas,

Yes I agree with you, I'll leave the Super-Tweeter project alone until I get my 66's right. I'll wait for Alan to specify.
I have already changed the binding posts and wiring. Where did you purchase the SEAS tweeters, was it direct from the manufacturer?

Regards

Wayne

I got mine on Fleabay for 19.99 + 7.99 shipping. I haven't seen them as cheap ever. They had been fitted once for listening tests and then replaced with something expensive. Perhaps they weren't appropriate for that build, or perhaps the owner had more money than sense - I don't know. Expect to pay about double that though. It's well worth checking on eBay.

Also, if you have a circuit board type crossover, I'd consider re-making it point to point on a 10" square piece of ply. It will all fit easier, sound better, and teach you a lot about how your crossover really relates to the schematic.

Hi Lucas,

Thanks for the info. My crossovers are the point to point type anyway.

Default Where can you buy from ?

Hi Wayne,

I forgot to ask yesterday,
can you buy capacitors from overseas via Mail-order,
such as from France or Canada or USA ?
or can you only buy within the UK ?

I ask this because there is a wider range and better choice from overseas than is currently available in the UK, and prices are not much greater including Postage, and may be less for some of the caps.

Also, what is your sound-type preference -
an upfront, immediate type of sound ?
or a larger sound-stage type of sound with a little more depth of soundfield ?

I ask this because different brands of capacitors give sounds towards one type or the other.

I have to go now, but hopefully will be back here tomorrow.

Hi Alan,
My credit is good so I don't see why I can't buy from anywhere. I prefer the larger sound-stage type of sound with a little more depth of sound field.
I have looked at ordering the SEAS tweeters. I have emailed 'Europe- Audio' as they are currently out of stock.

If anyone knows of somewhere else I can order the SEAS from please let me know!

Regards

Wayne

Default Why not from Wilmslow ?

I though I saw the SEAS H737 on Wilmslow Audio's web-site ...
and there is where you have the Credit from the return of the Morels.

If Wilmslow haven't got any, and none soon,
then contact the UK distributer:- Arena Electronics ...
though sometimes their web-site does not access.
If that happens, go to:
HI-FI WORLD MAGAZINE - THE UK'S EXPERT AUDIO MAGAZINE
and go to their "World Designs" page, and from there to their Parts page.
They sell some SEAS models, but not that tweeter, however they probably have a Link to Arena's page that will open ... Arena have at least 2 web-access points ... and of course I have forgotten how to find the 2nd, thus why I advise as above.

If still no success, go to:
THE ART OF SOUND PERFECTION BY SEAS - Home
and try to access Arena - or whatever name the UK distributer is listed as there - or email SEAS there and ask.

Arena Electronics do sell SEAS drivers direct via some facility in the UK ...
I have forgotten where and don't have time to look now as I really have to go now.

Wimslow has possibly barred Wayne from any further business.

Hi,

I think you're probably right. I'll go to them a last resort. I think their feathers are a bit ruffled due to my dithering about! The last I heard from them was after initially agreeing to source the resistors from Farnell's for me they have now said they are unable to!

Regards

Wayne
