    I did the Sierra 2 upgrade to EX in September 2020 which was a substantial upgrade. Circling back now I see there is a new upgrade to the V2 at $135.00 each. So do you guys think this is a worthwhile upgrade for the cost and effort involved?

    I took the same upgrade path as you (S2 to EX) and decided to also get the V2 upgrade kits, and couldn't be happier. Now I'm deciding on the Horizon ELX upgrade kits..

    For the Horizon, as center is most important for movies (IMO) and it's not much more work, I'd go for the full ELX kit (cross-over + drivers), not just the cross-over, if I were you. FWIW, that's what I did with my Horizon (plus my Towers), so all ELX across the front.

    The more I think on it, the more I think I want to do it. I have zero experience soldering though, and that's a little worrying to me. The other parts I feel like I can do no problem.

    I did my three speakers with no soldering experience at all... except I did practice once on an old Luna Duo to Duo v2 crossover. Just get a decent soldering gun (if you don't have one), heat up the solder pad and pull the wire out one at a time, solder in the new cross-over wires (again, I heated the pads and touched the solder to it). I also positioned the cross-over on the cabinet so that the new wire was held in place whilst soldering.

    This is the one I got. As I recall, it's also the one Dave recommended.

    Pull the trigger :-).

    I've got the same upgrade in my plans - S2 to S2EXv2 - for mine (being used as surrounds). Just need to save up (or pause the construction on our farm in Brazil or get my wife to stop buying shoes & clothes :-))
