    I had no idea the TL versions of the 2.3's added that much to the value of them. Thanks for correcting me.

    Worth $1300, sure IMO, but they don't go for that on ebay...

    Only three 2.3 tl's in my files. They went for $800, 900, and 1000. The $800 ones were a bit nasty, but the others were nice looking.

    Plain 2.3's ran from low $600's to 800, with a couple outliers in the 900's. I've eight data points there.

    While the new tweeters have leveled that field to a large degree and upgrading the crossovers results in a much improved speaker vs. stock, the TL still means something. The TL series have better built cabinets, the bass brace option, the AI-1 option and a more refined crossover.

    Not true. The 1.2's and TL models are the same except for the tweets and crossover values. It is only the SDA-SRS which has a slightly different enclosure design and a more complicated crossover. :)

    Cabinet structure and 6510 drivers for mid-woofers would mean 2A, not that I could tell any difference between 2A and early 2B I owned though. For this vintage, I don't think it matters. The "real" 2B's with the end caps are the only ones I'd value now, and then only for appearance.

    With the original pr's all you'd really have to replace, aside from the asthetical things, are the fritz'd tweet and the seas mid.

    are they really 1.2's? I couldn't quite tell by the pic if they have b/b or p/b.
    The SL2000WC $3 DIY mod is orgasmic. The smaller the uf/mfd value, the less harsh your SL2000 will be.
    1. SRS stock: .47 uf/250v mylar cap on top SL2000, 1.0 uf on 2nd sl2000, 1.0 uf on 3rd SL2000, .47 uf/250v on bottom SL2000
    2. 2.3 stock: 1.0 uf/250v on middle SL2000
    3. 1B stock: 1.0 uf/250v on top SL2000
    4. 2B stock: 1.0 uf/250v on the one SL2000
    Total Savings = $1000. PM me for free caps for your SL2000's. I can make a sl2000 sound just like a rd0194 with a $1.25 .33 uf/mfd 250 v cap.
