Re: Focal 826V

In the future, try the Focal US rep. I have a pair of 806's that I blew the woofer in one of the speakers, I contacted the rep via email and explained that it was my fault and I requested the cost for a replacement. He commented that its difficult to hear when you're approaching the limits of this driver and he sent me one free of charge.

I couldn't believe it. Try looking up Focal USA for a list of US Reps. He definitely helped me out.

Re: Focal 826V

In the original for MF two Bi-Polar Focal electrolytic capacitors: 68uF 63V diam.-16mm and 8,2uF 63V diam.-13mm, tolerance +/- 10%
After mod sound is very open, lucid and clear-cut with tigth and accurate bass (not smeared) very clear middle freq.

Re: Focal 826V

I always thought that my 826v lacked abit in the lows. That's a very interesting mod. Would you be willing to sell one of your focal caps that you removed. I need the one for the mid. It's the larger of the 2 that you removed

Re: Focal 826V

Hello I just blew the cap for mid woofer. Do you have any idea where to get a replacement? I have not had luck with local dealers. How do you like your mod?
