Hi, I'm new to this site, although I've been skulking in the background for some time. I believe this is the correct place for this post as the particular project I have uses all the skills available here.
I have two pair of vintage speakers that I've just acquired for a great price (free! couldn't even talk him down!!) and I want to modify them.
I have a pair of Infinity SM115s & SM122s and I want to add some bracing inside, possibly re-glue the cabs (if possible without tearing them up) and possibly recap the crossovers. Probably add some Dynamat or something as well (pillow stuffing better?).
My problem is, I've never done anything like this, only read that it would improve these speakers. I have the skill in woodworking and desoldering/resoldering components etc. But would need the proper values of cap and maybe the schematics would help alot too.
Everything I've read about these speakers says that all those things would improve the sound, am I right or wrong? I don't do much with movies, just music and I thought I may have lost some of my hearing from standing in front of some Marshall stacks over the years. Not sure of that, because I just got some software called "How to Listen" from Harman and I seem to be getting 100% correct so far on all the sound tests they have in it. Not sure if anyone has heard of that software, but the engineers at Harman use it to test their speakers against other manufacturers.
Wow, long winded, sorry!
Any help or suggestions?? Thanks,
