    Upgrading Genesis II's

    One more question and I will hop over to facebook. What is the correct way to disassemble the tweeter from the panel. I have 3 outer screws and 4 inner screws on the front. I assume that it is removed from the back side to access the soldered wires. Not sure to remove the 4 and have the magnet...

    Gary, Do you still have the tweeters available for the Genesis 2? Please let me know. Hope all is well with everyone. The Genesis forum has been pretty quiet lately. MAK

    Yes, Genesis makes a very good system. I see that you have the later 200 series and the 2.5. Mine are the 4 column wing Genesis 2's. Quite a bit different to the later 200's and 2.5's My next upgrade will be all the capacitors in the servo amp. Mark.

    Gary, I want to thank you for the schematics for the Bass servo interconnect. It sure does make a big difference in cohesion, clarity, and timing. Here is what I used. 1: Mogami 9ft x 2 / W2791 24ga. shielded cable 2: Neutrik NC3MXX x 2 3: Vishay 71-PTF561k.02%T10 x 2 1K resisitor 4...

    I cannot follow what your angle is with the reply. Have you considered trying the bass column interconnects as used on the genesis 2 to help coherency.

    Have you tried to contact Magic Marksey. Aka Michael Allen Marks for the servo amp. Though it sounds like you already have one.

    All the Rel-caps are available for about $190.00 per side. The Vishay VHP3 half ohm current sensing resistor can be had for $79.00 ea. Wafer switch for $10.00 and the NP 300uf 100v 5% x 2 caps (600uf total) for $5.00 ea. That covers all parts on the crossover other than the potentiometer for...

    Hi Gary, I found the mid band selector switch bad on the PCB board that I am working on. It works intermittently and was part of the problem. This is the 3 position selector switch as shown on the left of the picture. If wiggled, the mid panel drops out completely. It is thru hole / edge...

    Upgrading Genesis II's

    The 600uf 100v Culver cap is not available. So far all I have found is 2 x 300uf @100v 5% replacements. I measured the pot and it seems good. No dead spots or rough feeling while adjusting. Tweeters measured 3.8 ohms as connected. Also, the servo amplifier has 4 pots. I take it these are for...

    Gary, Can you recommend what brand, type of capacitors to replace the REL-CAPS in the crossovers with?? It seems that the top end is rolled off quite a bit at this time.
