I just pulled the trigger on Danny’s RF7 ii upgrade. Hopefully it will tame the harshness but I do admit I am worried that I will lose some of the clarity I love so much. But that are fatiguing when listening to music, but oh so detailed ! I also use them for movies, if they were just for movies I’d leave them as they are.
Do such extensive crossovers like Danny shows on his video have any negative effects on the forensic detail?
Cheers

You'll gain a lot of clarity and detail with the upgrade. The stock parts suck the wind out of them in that regard. You are not really hearing good detail with the stock crossover. It is just louder in the top end.

Hello Danny,
I have bought Monitor Audio Bronze 2 two years back. These speakers were well rated in What Hi-Fi magazine. I cant send you these speakers but I hope that someone will do. I think that they need treatment. :) Kind regards, Adam

You don't have to send both, you can just send 1.

I seem to remember Amar Bose stating the perfect speaker would be a floating sphere that produces sound in all directions.
Perhaps those Blue Speakers of yours are based on that concept (?)

PS- How do they sound??

Hi new guy here. I posted a "hello world" post in the Starting Block a couple of weeks ago but haven't seen it approved and published yet, so hoping this works.

I just received the Vienna Acoustics Mozart Grand upgrade from GR Research. I ordered the upgraded tweeter capacitors (Sonicaps) because as my wife always says, life is too short for sub-par capacitors.

Can't wait to do the network layout, install, etc. over the holidays. I'm toying around with ordering some No Rez but will determine that once I tear into the cabinets and see what's there. I'll post some build pics and impressions when I reach that stage.

Thanks for saving these speakers, Danny. They have sentimental value to me so was super stoked when I saw your 2nd vid on the Tube and ordered the upgrades almost immediately.

 :lol: Sounds like you found a keeper wife and set of speakers. Too funny. Keep everyone posted on your results, and welcome to the club.

Thank you and will do! I spent all of last weekend watching online videos of how to orient inductors, how to solder caps and wiring and inductors, how to layout a networks, etc. I've had these speakers since 2012 and while I think they sound pretty good, have always wondered why they are so finicky on placement (both in the vertical and horizontal planes) and haven't revealed what I've heard in other speakers. That is, playing the same track, some frequencies seemed muffled compared to other "high end" speakers.

GR Research did their review of the speakers (again, Vienna Acoustic Mozart Grands) about a year ago and some stuff clicked. What I *thought* I was hearing turned out to be true. I was getting ready to unload over the coming holidays when Danny posted his 2nd video with the fix.  BOOM, headed over the GR Research website and hit "buy now" instantly.

I'll post up pics of what I find when I open up the speakers and how I proposed to layout the network. I'm pretty handy in the automotive realm (have wired racecars, for example) but audio DIY is brandy new to me. My hope is that whatever I learn can be shared and benefit others who might be going down the same path.

All the best,
-PBE

Thank you for the warm welcome!

Interesting, I just read the guidelines again and don't *think* I broke any rules, other than what was probably bad humor. But I can't remember what I wrote at this point so... water under the bridge.

I do really like forum policy on having everyone's 3 first posts moderated. Should weed out SPAM and keeps the community clean without the noise. Great idea. I've been a mod on other forums in the automotive world and wish those forums would adopt the same.
