Hi montaldos ,

You are ruin the value of the speakers if you change the crossover in these speakers,
Especially Snell speakers that are well-known for their tight tolerances, if you're happy with the speakers like they are now, why make any changes?.
There are so many experts who believe that they improve the speakers by replacing parts of the filter, but there is absolutely no scientific evidence for this,
Just a belief that everything is getting better, and especially no blind tests confirming this.Changing capacitors to completely different types (polypropylene for examples) not only changes the capacitance but also the resistance which totally destroys the speaker's sound, so my recommendation if you are going to change something, make complete new crossover and save the originals as is, i would never by a Snell Type A with changing in the filter, no way.

Something else to take into account, you do not know how much has changed since they were new, you have no idea how the capacitance has been driving all these years since they were new, but one thing I can say I have owned , And still own Snell speakers from the early 80's, and when I measure these capacitor banks that Peter Snell often used, it does not differ more than 2-3% on the total value, which does not matter to the end of the result, or maybee that is the right value to get the tolerance 0,2 db from the reference speaker, my suggestion is to keep the speakers original , It is with respect to the designer of these famous speakers, Peter Snell.
Regards Göran

I can not post the photo from my phone in here. If you give me your mail adr, I send the photo to you. That's the best way for the moment, because I don't have a working pc at the moment. Smiley

Yeah the plastic bag through me off :p Would you mind hosting the image of the crossover on imgur so I can see it.

Thank you all for your help

Here is a photo of the crossover in the C4 as it should be.

I could not see the photo by the link, so I could not tell the different between the "homemade", and the original crossover.  Smiley Snell did not use boards to mount crossover components, but used hardwiring. That's why it's look a little homemade. The air choked are made in hand by a person in the Snell factory. The can look a little homemade, but they are indeed.  Smiley

The crossovers look to be correct to me also, but they are definitely messed up.  It could be possible to fix them, if you have a "crossover guru" that you know of.  Carl's Speakers used to do such work, but I believe he is retired now.  Also, Gordonw, on Audiogon has the ability to do this.  He is quite busy and hard to reach, but he did re-do my E II crossovers to an exact match of the original.  This included bundling the capacitors and everything.  Atomic HiFi is your best bet for exact replacement of the drivers.  However, they are not cheap.  I wish you well.
