lol..

Z5500's are descent set of speakers after all. I too have them modded a bit i.e just by putting some dampening material inside all satellite one's and it does sound better than before. Improvements especially on the mid - high area. And for god sake i found enough dampening material already inside the Subwoofer enclosure. Now my next Mod would be the Cap-Mode if situation permits.

Well I just changed the stock wires with a new set of RCA AWG 16 Cables and it sounds better.

It may sound even better if I rewire the satellites just as DJ did, but i dont think I have the time for that.

Probably Ill try the cap mod, but i still have to find where i can get those Nichicon in Mexico.

Yes you could be right about the rewiring. And if you do the cap mod, then please feel free to share with us too here @ OCN.
