    The T27 is a superb tweeter that was used in the LS3 5a, the JR-149 and many other fine speakers. You may want to look elsewhere for the sonic deficiencies. I'd start with the caps.

    Just fitted cheap np electrolytics to the crossovers until the proper replacements arrive.
    Mid to top end is so much more open and detailed now. Massive difference.

    Here's the little suckers

    Good stuff, I figured that would clear them right up. I bet they sound pretty good now. Enjoy!

    I might upgrade the crossovers and add the coles in the future.

    Update;

    I'm planning to change the crossovers from the original DN12 to hand making the Radford xovers including new internal wiring, refit new internal wool lining.

    Is it worth mounting the B110 in it's own round tube chamber?

    Will update my review once I have completed this upgrade.
