Danny,

Are you able to create an upgraded crossover for the old Reference 1 center channel like what Sean at Skiing Ninja used to have?  I have Ninja'd Reference 1 bookshelf mains with his best crossover (I forget the term) with Sonicap Platinum bypass caps and No Rez.  I'd love to get something that matches for a cheap center channel I just picked up. 

Thanks!
Robert

I think the Ref 1 Center was actually the same speaker as the Ref 2 floor standing model. It was just in a smaller cabinet on it's side.

And yes, I designed all new networks for those models.

Is it best to call and discuss upgrades for the Reference 1 center or is that ok in here?

Thanks!

Thanks Danny!

I'm looking for something sonically the same or similar to the high-end crossovers that Sean had for the Reference series to match what I have now.  I don't recall the specific network components unfortunately other than i paid extra for a Sonicap platinum bypass.  I also put NoRez in them as well.  I'd love to pick up similar crossovers with Sonicap platinum bypasses and NoRez.

Thanks!
Robert

No problem. I supplied all of that stuff for Sean. I have it all in stock.

Is it possible to buy an assembled upgraded crossovers?  I can solder enough to hook it up but am to shakey to assemble one thanks to a neurological disorder. Obviously I know that would cost more.

Thanks!

Danny - have you ever explored inside the KEF LS50 to see if they're holding anything back?

A crossover change would help, but the Omega 3HO Monitor's sounds better for slightly less money

I have not.

But don't expect high end components at that price point. So the chance for improvements are high.
