Very cool! I would think that should make a noticeable improvement.  Keep us posted.

Received my Copper Caps today from GR Research, 12uF, 12uF, 9uF to replace my Mundorf MCap Classic aluminized PP film 33uF.
Build quality is solid and the weight is hefty, especially compared to the MCap.
Gonna have to get creative on the available real estate of my bi-wire crossover bases.

Hi there! I was wondering how you like these new copper caps? I do know that they take some time to burn-in. Thanks!

I haven't yet incorporated the new Copper Caps.

Hi Richie,

I just finished my XL-S Encore build, my first ever, and I am ecstatic. I cannot believe the sound coming out of these little boxes.

I learned a lot in the process and I am sure my next crossover will go together more cleanly. I have a friend already interested in buying my first pair so thinking to buy another kit and do it again!

Do you think these new copper caps are over kill for the Encore tweeter?

If I understand correctly, I could build a new cross over (or change existing if there is room) with a 9.0 uF and 12 uF copper cap?

If you do not think it is over kill, and I buy a new Encore kit with these copper caps instead of the Sonicaps, what would the net cost be by deducting the cost of the Sonicaps?

If you prefer I call you, please let me know and I will.

Thank you again for all of your guidance to us newbies. I am really happy with my speakers.

Mark

Sorry Danny, I meant to write Danny, not Richie!
