    Default Ruark Crusaders Crossovers

    Id like to refresh some of caps and resisters on my Ruark Crusader 2 crossovers.

    Has anyone had any experience doing this with my exact model or similar. I know the drivers are notoriously difficult to remove (the gaskets seem to be glued in place!) Ive ordered some hook tools to get in behind the bolts but any other advice would be gratefully received.

    You cant go in through the terminal panel either as something blocks its path after removing the screws.

    They are getting on a bit now so I'm sure they'd benefit from a bit of TLC.

    A tip. When removing the bass driver Take out the two bottom bolts first leaving the top two tight. This will allow the bottom of the driver to flick itself free or be freed with minimum effort. I know because i re-wired a pair many years ago.

    Thanks Roger, I'll bear that in mind. Had a quick go at it the other night and the bass driver did not want to budge at all.

    I held a hair dryer over the surround to try and heat up the glue underneath but still had no joy in budging them. I really don't want to damage the veneer underneath.

    Been there got the t-shirt. Never found a workable solution that didn't involve damage to the cabinet so if anyone has any suggestions I'd be most pleased to hear.

    I wonder how they did it under warranty?
