About the capacitor on the tweeter: the filter-cap on the tweeter of the Omen Dirty Weekend Mk.I is a simple monopole, a single capacitor. The stock capacitor used is a decent polypropylene ERSE Pulse-X. Upgrading from this to the ClarityCap MR in conjunction with the new tweeter driver and lens makes quite a nice difference, increasing the resolution of the treble while simultaneously making the sound more wholistic—relaxed, smooth, comfortably more vibrant and pleasurable.

ClarityCap MR upgrade consists of a new matched pair of tweeters with the ClarityCap MR filters attached to the tweeter drivers and ready for easy installation:

  1. Read these instructions before you start.

  2. Remove the 10” full-range driver (8x Torx T-25 screw heads).

  3. Lift the full-range driver up high enough that you can fit a hand inside and wiggle the Faston connections off the full-range driver tabs.

  4. Remove the tweeter mounting screws (4x #1 square drive screws).

  5. Lift the old tweeter assembly out.

  6. Mount the new tweeter lens in the cabinet. NOTE: the new tweeter driver will not fit through the hole in the cabinet so you will need to spin the tweeter driver (and attached high-pass network) into the mounted tweeter lens from inside the cabinet. The mesh screen goes in between the tweeter lens and tweeter. This is placed on the tweeter prior to screwing it on to the lens.

  7. Connect the four Faston leads, red to positive (+), to the 10” driver tabs. Typically main harness leads to the inner tabs, tweeter leads to the outer tabs.

  8. Remount the 10” full-range driver back down.

  9. Repack the old tweeter drivers, network and lens in the now empty package making sure nothing is going to bugger anything up.

  10. Slap the supplied return shipping label on the box and drop it off with US Post.

  11. Enjoy.

  12. Get money back when we get your old, not dinged up parts.
