    I was watching the T.O. MapleLeafs lose to the Pit Penguins and decided to open up my Denon 1801 and Rotel RMB-1066 to see the difference inside each. Take a look

    One question: How much uF of reserve capacity is enough? My Denon 1801 looks to use 2x10000uF(70wx5) and my Rotel 6x6800uF(6x60w..., 3x150w).

    Kevin,
    You are not alone! I tore my AR9 speakers apart just to see
    how the drivers looked from the back side!

    Now speakers I would be scared to take apart just incase I screwed up the sound in any way.

    I took apart my Polk CS175i to replace a tweeter, and was fascinated by how the polyfill inside was blocking the port. So I stuck my hand in and pushed the polyfill back, and now the speaker has a much nicer sound to it -- punchier with mid-bass (which it was lacking for music).
    Sadly, replacing the tweeter didn't fix my problem (crackling in voices), so back to tech support! [​IMG]
