I ordered the upgrade kit from Regnar for a pair of DQM-9 speakers that I bought from the original owner. I don't see any problem with doing it, and there is definately an overall improvement in clarity, detail and bass power. That said, if I had to do it again I would have bought everything that I needed from Sonic Craft. I say this because Jeff there has a lot of knowlege about crossovers, and besides that, you can get caps that are as good or better for the same price or less. Also, realize that the Regnar upgrade does not include wire, resistors or inductors. Now, it isn't a must to change these things, especially the inductors, but if you are going to all of the trouble, why not do it? It makes a difference too. It is nOt that hard to do, especially if you can solder. The DQM-9 was more difficulT becuse the crossover was at the base of the enclosure and the sidewall; so there was a real spaghetti mess of wires. It is a must to take photos of everything as you take it apart. That makes it easier. In conclusion, if you like the speakers, do it. You will be glad you did.
