Polk Audio Monitor 7 Series 2

Can anyone tell me what I need to buy for capacitors to upgrade my speaker? I can see numbers on a couple of them but one I cannot see and they are all glued down right now.
Thanks

    The schematic is listed if you look.

    Thanks. I was hoping someone had a list of what is needed. I am not that familiar with schematics and the capicitors that are replacements for the originals.

    The values are listed on the schematic. If you can read them off the board components you can read them off the schematic.

    He has the 7 series 2 not the original 7's.

    Would this be the right one? I have the SL2500 tweeters, not sure on the driver I would have to check

    I do believe so.

    Thanks for all the help. I really appreciate. These speakers sound pretty darn good but I am guessing a capacitor upgrade is going to help some.

    Another option is to replace the SL2500 tweeter with the RD0-198 available directly from Polk for ~$50 each. Call customer service and tell them you are a polk forum member and get free shipping. IMO the SL2500's sound soft and dull to me. The RD0-198 is much more crisp and detailed without being fatiguing.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but the sl2500 is NOT the TL tweeter and would be replaced with the rd0-194.

    The SL2500 and the SL3000 are both replaced by the RD-0198 from what I have read on this site.

    Ok, but that's rather confusing to read TL (3k) and 198 in the same breath, but nary the 2500...

    Consider me corrected
