Yeah, I meant 700 & 1100uf on the RS 2.5. I am presently trying out a pair of RS 2a's that sound very nice in their stock form. I'm looking to upgrade the midrange capacitors in those (if I get them) (probably will) and the woofer caps in those are 125, 600, and 1600. I was getting the two different speaker's caps mixed up.

I'd really like to put the Mundorf Supremes in the 2.5's midrange crossover, but the cost is astronomical. It seems that any step upward from the EVO Oils is a giant step up dollar-wise.

There's an 100uF EVO Oil.  You could use a 22uf Supreme paralleled with that, and probably get very close to the sound you want.  I did the same thing with my recap.  I used a 3.9 EVO Oil + a 2.2 Supreme, to get a 6uF I needed.  I also used a 22uF EVO Oil and a 2.2 Supreme Silver/Oil, for a 24uF midrange cap.  No complaints from me.  They sure beat the 30 year old NPE's!   :thumb:
