I don't know which specific models of filters you have, but I can tell you
that in many cases filters differ in the number of "poles" they implement.
An example being replacing the 4 pole 2.4 khz filter in some ten tec models
with an 8 pole aftermarket filter. It gives you sharper, and deeper,
skirts, without much insertion loss. The result ? In the heat of battle,
with strong signals climbing in very close to you, the deeper skirts will
allow you to operate better through a qrm rich environment. Otherwise, you
will notice little change. If thats the kind of filters you have, it would
explain their purpose.
