    Gimpod, you are prolific and have a good reputation. I found a pair of polk monitor series 5, crossovers dated august 1988. I'm going with the TL mod and have ordered the RD0198 tweeters. Looking on SonicCraft to order crossover parts. Going by the 5/30/89-6/26/89 PolkAudio Schematic M5B by J.B. Poling, I am planning on replacing the safetyguard with 0.5ohm resistor, replacing the 2ohm resistor, adding 5.8uF cap in parallel with the 2.0ohm resistor and replacing the 12uF cap. I'm also replacing the last 34uF cap.

    Do I need to replace the 0.23mho inductor with Mr. Poling's 0.27mho 5ohm inductor?????? I did a quick calculation and just can't tell how much difference it would make. I have searched through the plethora of posts on audiokarma, here and a few other sites and don't find a mention of anyone going to the "trouble".

    I have Mills resistors, Sonic Cap Gen I 200V caps are in my shopping cart.
    I'll probably put the original SL2000 fisheyes on ePrey.
    Thanks,
    Richard
