Polk Audio 2.3TL Crossover Modification Thread

Some reason I was a space cadet on this one and didn't take any photos -

But I am really liking the CSA, they have the detail of the ESA with slightly more warmth!

Slid in the CAST Duelunds :)

    Those look great Trey. When I have to update my capacitors it looks like I will be using some CSA's. I like the idea of the detail of the ESA's with more warmth. I will still be using the Duelund Cast resistors though.

    Inspiring! The connector sockets for the drivers look super practical.
