"Vilt" is felt

Sonofil is the wool like stuff. "1 mat" weighs about 55 grams

the 1/16th refers to 1 sheet, (a mat as we call it here)

Got it. Thank you Henkjan!

Hopefully I can pick up some ply at the weekend and make a start on these.

1. Looking at the plans, in the top left just behind the driver, there is an area called 'VILT'. What is VILT?

2. The damping is specified in 1/16's of MAT SONOFIL. It looks to me that Sonofil is a product commonly used in Europe. I wonder if anyone knows of an an equivalent product that is economically available in Australia?

3. Also, as there are no units specified for the Sonofil, I assume that 1/16 refers to 1/16th of some defacto unit, perhaps a roll or a sheet?

Thanks very much

Rich
Where did you order them from?

I did not see them on the Mark Audio website.

Nothing wrong with Alpair 6m/6p. They are in production and available.

Thank you. I just picked up two CHR-70A, NIB for a great price (about half of retail).
