Thanks for the update. If and when you find the time to start the project perhaps you could possibly provide some pics of your work. I just bought a used set of N805 speakers and plan to upgrade the crossovers myself. I have a feeling that better caps and resistors will improve the transparency and other good things with this upgrade.

Thank you, Jeff. I'll definitely keep that in mind for a possibility. Also, a while back you mentioned a new prototype film and foil cap you had. I can't see anything new on your film cap list. Did this cap ever go into production?

Well...  I ran a pre-production production run.  So, I have a pretty good pile of caps, but Bas Lim (RelCap) decided to hang it up after 40 years.  After all, he was in his 80s.  Several revelations followed as I considered an offer Bas made to me.  It turned out not to be.  However, Wilson Audio decided to purchase the operation.  The reason you do not see the caps is because I'm not sure what the future holds at this point.

In any event, if I were given your desired results, and these caps happen to fit the bill, I would have you covered.
