Are any of you following "Thiel Owners" on Facebook? Bill Kranhold just rebuilt his Thiel CS1.2s with new crossover and drivers. It sounds impressive to me. What do the other experts here think? https://www.facebook.com/groups/129498082096524 His...

@slbjbb  40 Days is the most played CD in my entire collection! Totally agree. Great Canadian Folk music and well recorded.

I am interested in replacing stock resistors on my CS1.2 crossovers with Mills MRA12s. Does anyone know where I can find a schematic and/or a picture/diagram of the crossover? I will eventually do some upgrades on my CS3.6 crossovers.

Just an update on my inquiry a few days ago about a subtle midrange degradation in my 3.6s.  I should have done some troubleshooting before my comment on this forum. I completely broke down my whole system and cleaned all connections/contacts wit...

Advice please..... My CS3.6s #4789, #4790 produced 5/22/96 seem to have a subtle midrange degradation (slightly grainy and less focused??). Rob did the soft dome rebuild of my tweeters 5/2022, but all other components are original. Other than list...

Wailin' Jennys. A Canadian folk trio with magical harmony. The release, "40 Days" has had more playback on my system than any other.

@danomar If you're ever 150 miles west in Birmingham, you can come by and listen to my CS3.6s. See my virtual system for details. It was at Audio Alternative in your hometown of Lilburn that started my passion for Thiel. The setup was Thiel SCS4s...

Anyone looking for a pair of 2.3 coaxial drivers? I wish these were new/old stock 3.6 tweeters. I’d like to buy and compare unused aluminum tweeters with my new replacement soft dome tweeters. https://www.audiogon.com/listings/lisai53b-thiel-cs-2...

After nearly 2 weeks of heavy play with the new soft dome tweeters from Rob at CSS, the brightness is totally resolved! Amazing! These are definitely an upgrade over 26-year-old aluminum dome tweeters. @vair68robert- Thank you for the advice abou...

I received the soft dome tweeters, installed them in the 3.6s and listened throughout the weekend. Early on, they were fatiguing with increased sibilance, but seem to be approaching the original sound either from mechanical break-in or psychoacous...

@TomThiel The soft dome tweeter rebuilds are shipping back to me now. I asked Rob about his impressions and measurements and this is the limited reply: "I think you will find that the soft dome is compatible. I have sold around 30 of these units...

I removed the bad tweeter and measured open circuit on the multimeter (the good one measured 3 ohms). I have sent both to Rob for the soft dome rebuilt and will report back later. I will also be looking for 2 original pre-used tweeters as backup.
