    Capacitor-kit for RL-speakers

    Hi there

    I remember on the old forum Dillen (Martin) once advertised his capacitor upgrade (refurbish) kit for the RL range of speakers. Apparently exchanging the old capacitors will improve the sound. As I have just moved and my RL6000 are not installed on the walls yet, I thought I might as well put some new capacitors and check the drives while they are not "in the air".

    BUT: Where is Dillen (Martin)? It would be too great a loss if he is not around any more...

    Best regards

    He is around ie. registered and I'm sure will pop up as I'm writing thisConfused

    You will find him ebay as well where he sells his kits.

    He's still here, still using his Dillen monica (although I haven't seen him about for a day or two - perhaps hes on holiday). Drop him a PM and he'll send a kit out (at quite a reasonable price - mine was)Big Smile - payment via Paypal.

    Generally speaking, you aren't learning much if your lips are moving.

    Great, thanks. I'll drop him a PM.

    By the way, how difficult was it to replace the capacitors? My soldering skills are very basic, but perhaps I can get my father to help.

    I'm right here.
    A capacitor kit is available but to be honest, the RL6000 is
    still a fairly new speaker so I'm not sure how much improvement you will notice.
    Replacing the caps is not very difficult, they are fairly large components sitting on a standard one-sided PCB board.
