    I've been thinking of replacing the crossovers in a pair of Monitor Reds that I've had for awhile and I've come across a schematic on this website...

    This is what the schematic looks like.

    Has anyone had any experience with the Monitor Red crossover and can anyone shed light on whether this schematic is a viable guide for me to follow?

    Also, if anyone has any recommendations on components I'm all ears. I'm thinking of Goertz copper film inductors but haven't come to a decision on caps and resistors. And for what its worth, Im not sure whether or not to include the "un-official" HF response modification near 3KHz.

    Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

    You might want to post on Pink Fish Media in the "Classic" forum and on Art of Sound. There are some very adept folks there who can provide guidance and I found it was a great help when my Tannoy's started acting up. I went back and forth on this for my GRF's with MG 15's and after all was said and done cleaned up the connectors on the stock ones and left things as is. Good luck with whatever you decide. Monitor Reds are a wonderful thing to have! :)

    Have you seen this post?

    And this - although it's specific to MG's -- Black Adder, who is a moderator there is supposedly a Tannoy wizard.
