Recycled Blue jeans stuff is problematic to readily source.
Some like Henry Kloss.. report that it pumps lint into the room ...forever.. making it more trouble than it's worth.. especially where Warantees need observing.
Carpet and or automobile underfelt is fairly easily available, for very little coin.. sometimes ersatz substitutes are just too good to pass up, despite their slight inferiority perceptions.

unfortunately we're certainly finding that to be the case, and may yet need to find an acceptable replacement, but for now we've found source (in Vancouver, no less) sufficient for our requirements.

Yes, if you're separating the 2" batts you'll get some loose dusty fibres, but I've been using both that and the 1/2" bonded back Ultratouch for several years now, and haven't seen or felt lint pumping out.

Out of curiosity, where/when did HK report such findings?

true enough, although "perceptions" suggests that you think material differences couldn't make a difference?

Complete nonsense or anal retentiveness, you pick.

Well I do remember the styrofoam packing peanuts recommended by John Wychoff ( sp?) reputedly* being spit out of ports on the Hammer Super12s, so maybe under the right circumstances that might be a positive number

*as with the Henry Kloss attribution, once you remember reading it on the internets somewhere, it must be a fact - sometimes even true

Hi Bob,

Net air transport through a reflex port should be....zero!

I bet you already knew that!

Best Regards,

Thanks for advice with car undercarpet. Found the damn thing in a car recycling center. One of the best ideas. The thing is discusting, though!
Would be nice to figgure out a way to clean it. Will experiment and report back.

I pulled up the carpet in several Fords before I found a decent donor.

In hindsight a 90's Mustang trunk may be a cleaner source for underlayment.

The horns are made, last panels glued together and curing under a lot of pressure
I cleaned the underlayment only by soaking it in bleach and alowing to dry. That's it. Hope I killed all those poor little creatures that might have lived in it

Any my hopefully last noob question, since I mount the drivers tomorrow, what is the purpose of foam rubber rings I got with my drivers? To cancel some vibrations or to seal the enclosure even better? Should I use them?
