  • I purchased a set of SDA SRS new around 1988. I have used them nearly every day since then, but they are still stock and I am looking to upgrade the crossover and new tweeters.

    Awesome! I just picked up a set of SRS's not too long ago and swapped out the tweeters. Profound improvement. XO's eventually. Lot's of folks here have done that as well.

    Welcome!

    By now those caps will be quite bad.
    Biggest change you can make to make these sound better.

    We used Dayton caps on one set of ours and compared to the old original caps, it made a huge difference in treble and clarity.

    Some members use more boqique caps, and found our big pair have those type, but both types sound great to us.

    Nice speakers you have there!
