Default Electra 946 Xover Upgrade

Hello guys,
In the last few days i was thinking in upgrade the caps and resistors of my Focal JMlab Electra 946 loudspeakers for the amazing Mundorf Supreme EVO Silver/Gold/Oil caps and Mundorf M-Resist resistors because i believe that with this upgrade this speakers blows my mind.
Somebody has opened a pair of 946's and have pictures of the xover??i don't open mine yet and need the specifications of the components.
I am looking in internet but don't find anything.
Thanks a lot!
Cheers

Pablo

How old are your speakers? Have you heard a pair with your suggested upgraded caps? In my experience, the resistors will be fine for many years unless the originals were really cheap. Caps do deteriorate, but do you think you can hear anything missing from the overall sound of your speakers?

Anyone have pictures of a Sopra2 crossover?
I've never seen what they use for parts and I'd like to see what's inside.
