Nice redo. Picking up a pair of d3's that need work. Thinking a complete rebuild of crossovers. Did you stay with same specs of old caps?

Thanks, took some work and time. Yes, everything was done to the old components specs. I have a pair of Dx 1 to go through, should not be as bad.

Well the d3's have 3.5 uf caps. Can only find 3.3uf, wonder if that would actually matter? Seems close enough, no?

Yes they are non-polarized. More important, they are film capacitors and do not need to be replaced.
