They solder in the battery? Do they solder right to the terminal?
A few months ago I had my 5A 9 volt batteries replaced in both locations as well. They were way past the expiration year (2010?) and actually came appart and leaked. Ugh! If you haven't done so already, I suggest reaching out to your regional Vandersteen dealer to see if they have an experienced tech that can do it. My area did not, so they sent them in to Vandesteen. I think it was ~$150 plus shipping. I supplied the batteries as I wanted to use the upgraded Lithium ones. If you do decide to go Lithium, shop around (internet) and just buy a block of 10 (case?) to save some dough.If you elect to have someone other than a Vandy tech do them, I suggest really being confident they know what they are doing. Being able to heat sink the battery terminals while soldering without destroying the batteries, etc. and the tight spots they attach to the xovers is really a job for skilled tech professional, in my humble opinion.Best of luckKenreau
The batteries in the crossover are probably as old as yours...hope mine haven't leaked as well. I don't have a local dealer, so that isn't an option.The $150 fee seems high to me, but I will make sure that I am not penny wise and pound foolish.Did you hear any substantial difference after getting the new batteries in place?George
That being said, while I truly love my speakers, I don't think I would spend another $11k to upgrade them from 5A to 5A Carbon status. George
So you did upgrade them? $11k for that service?
