I was sorry to you Dave when you posted pictures and had the question marks regarding the bookmatching. I corrected you when I shouldn't have because I was noticing only the fine veneer matching top to bottom and hadn't paid attention to the bookmatching that Chris then pointed out to me.

Got all that?

Careful Cal, that explanation is starting to sound a bit Davish - and that's a slippery slope ... of which I'm prime evidence

Hi guys....regarding dampening. I have the acoustastuff and using the CSS EL70eN which I got from Dave. Does anyone have experience on the amount of stuffing needed below the driver. The drawing indicates 20 - 40g. Now I believe this acoustastuff is quite potent and that a person should use it sparingly. Should I go for 20g or has someone got a figure from practical experience with this driver?

Many thanks

I have had no feedback from users and we have not yet built a proper set with EL70. I ship 40g of acoustastuff with the flat-paks for this position. Room & room placement, amp, taste all play a role so anything beyond a range is hard to nail down.

Hi Dave, thanks I understand. Just thought there might be a "golden" number to start from. A value that would have been used if this was a commercial speaker sent out to a store where the buyer's scenario is unknown.

Not to worry, I'll start with 20g and work from there.

Cheers

I read through the whole thread over the past week and wanted to see what you guys thought about using the JX92S in the FH3. I have some left over from the group buy way back, and while their T/S parameters aren't exactly similar to the Alpair 7.3, they could be a lot further off. They have the same xmax but a larger cone area which should make them even more bass heavy than the Alpair 7.3.

Cone area does not equate to 'bass heavy' -the higher Vas may in fact result in attenuated LF output. Since Fran has tried it & liked the results, as Dave says, it seems there is a reasonable chance of you being happy.
