Nifty, but it should show up in the holograms just as well and show you the patterns.

I concluded my crude attempts at doping the 125's. Quite successful for a safe only one pair experiment. The "conclusion" from my experiments is that if one wanted one all done up, they should just see you. Quite educational. I would not have given as much weight to the mods had I not dabbled in it a bit myself. The real payoff is in better ability to read OEM data sheets and to know how to buy a driver that does not need to be fixed up. That is the path I intend to stay on. Love that reed paper Seas.....

Laser interferometry lets you look at the cone. MicroFlown looks at the air being driven by the cone, they do no show the same things.

I saw you post that you were going to take them over to Doug's to try in his cab. Yesterday i just finished up a colour matched set for our proto Fonken125T which will free up a set. I thot i might ask if he'd like to borrow the spare set (me knowing that it would give you a chance to evaluate them too) -- i've not had a chance to contact him about that yet (Hey Dougie!!!)

Well Sir, I would be honored. I'm sure my MD counterpart would be very excited to audition them also.

I should have an upgraded pair of boxes done by the time they arrive; now that there is a mission, that would be a sure bet (-; (-;

Given the differential between how quick you get things done, and i get things done -- particularily given that i'm also prepping for VI diyFEST, i'd bet on you

Default Second construction pic.

Cut length for backs and sides at same time - the box self alines square (because of the "triangle") for glue/clamping.

This is a dry fit; cork next, then glue/clamp up on corner of work bench.
