Thiel Owners


I just scored a sweet pair of CS 2.4SE loudspeakers. Anyone else currently or previously owned this model?
Owners of the CS 2.4 or CS 2.7 are free to chime in as well. Thiel are excellent w/ both tubed or solid-state gear!

Keep me posted & Happy Listening!



I am looking forward in reading and seeing more about the Outboard XO option.

Keep up the excellent DIY work!


Happy Listening!


I have many oars in the water at the moment but will get there when time presents itself. 

I am seeing a lot of chatter about upgrading the CS2.7 speakers. Can anyone send me instructions on how to do this? In particular, it looks like using the "Clarity Purity 1uf 800v capacitors" is a good upgrade? Where are these located and how would I replace what is currently on the crossover? 

I have installed the Clarity Purity 800v - S 1uf cap in the mid range circuit and am very impressed , this leaves me with wanting to upgrade a 1.5uf cap on the negative side of the tweeter circuit to a Clarity Purity 250v , one that I already upgraded from an ERSE 250v to an Clarity ESA 250v .  While I don't think this will make much of a difference this will be the last cap upgrade .

Question does anybody have knowledge or experience with replacing an inductor  of a small gauge with one of a larger gauge with the same resistance  ?  The inductors are the only components that I have not changed .
