Mine were actively XOed to a pair of Peerless 8s. They were a pretty amazing speaker for store bought & $300/pr.

yes, I think the enclosure damping technique, small midbass and slotted port matched very well.

John,
What is the brand and type of silicon you intended to use for bonding the constrained layer?

Hi John and Dave, you sound like a married couple

John, I would say you put on quite an effort here! I mean in a positive way!
I've got a question about silicone. I have been using that before but gave up as it creeping out of joints long after its supposed to have dried. This was a problem particular when using paint on MDF. And above all, silicone and lacquer/paint are like republicans and democrates

Cheers!

Ray,

I like your signature line as I think along those lines also, but isn't it: "Illegitimi non carborundum"?

Or is that deliberate?

Yoo All

Use contact cement to bond your materials together.Best damping ever.Contact cement is realy neoprene rubber.Take two pieces of scrap and bond together with regular wood glue.Now do the same using contact cement.Drop on a solid surface.Gone is the ringing with the contact cement.

Cheers

Cal,
Either way is OK since both phrases are pseudo-Latin. Illegitimis is the dative plural of Illegitimus. I selected the singular since much of the time there seems to be one b*st*rd leading the attempt to "grind you/me down"?!

Ray

Sorry, I am trying to make the reply unoffensive to the censors and members.

Dave,
No, I don't have anything better than this receiver. I have an old (I mean ancient) Pioneer SA-6800 integrated amp that this one (Yamaha HTR-5760) replaced. The Pioneer in out in my workshop.
I have no claims to audiophiledumb.

This being a DIY audio site, I can say that I am striving to make up for any of the Yamaha's deficiencies by building the previously mentioned speakers as full active, with filters and amps of my own devising.
Whether I get results that are better than what the Yamaha (they have been building amps a lot longer than I have) will give me, that's unknown. But one thing is for sure, I'm having fun doing it.
