FS: LS3 5A AB1 subwoofer XO kit

Recommended Posts

Item: Brand New AB1 subwoofer  XO kit
Location:Southern flureau 
Price: 260
Item Condition: new 9/10
Reason for selling: other priorities in my life ATM
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, COD 

BankTransfer Pickup preferred.
Extra Info: Skimp on the quality of the components in the bass section of your passive crossover and overall sound quality will be compromised as all other signals will be filtered by the quality of passing through these components. That is the simple inconvenient truth that many loudspeaker manufacturers like to avoid confronting. This is the Achilles heel of the standard kits and Rogers AB1 bass enhancement module as I like to call it. It really doesn't go low enough to qualify as a subwoofer.

The kit consists of  X 2 Erse 17 MH .5 Ohm DCR 500 watt rms inductors  and  X 4 Cross Cap Jantzen 100 uF 400 V polypropylene that are more than a fist full each. Check out the price of these things add postage and know you are getting a bargain that will enhance the performance of your AB1.

Hi Mark I have a pair of Audio Space AB-1 copies which have really impressed me with bass reproduction when properly controlled. I currently have an ME550 MkII being loaned to me while my Accuphase E-205 is in for repairs. 

 

Would you expect a significant improvement with changing out caps and inductors, are they installed in the AB-1 towers and are there any reviews with standard components changed out? 

 

Thanks in anticipation, Regards

 

John
