I suppose my post was far too lacking in emoticons (again). The sticking-tongue-out was inadequate...

I was trying to go for sarcastic again, but somehow I missed (again).

(Where's the "sarcastic" or "tongue-in-cheek" emoticon when you need it?)

We have found Amaranth to be the most effective grain for damping, especially if used in the month of May.

Barley's pretty popular too.

I eat amaranth all the time - it's a green-magenta leafy vegetable like spinach, not a grain.

I believe the grain [actually a seed not a true grain] has been used as a foodstuff for longer than the leaf. I'll go check.

EDIT: They just say both have been used for a long time. We can get the seeds up here but not the leafs.

Amaranth does produce copious seeds which if left to itself produces lots more amaranth plants. Never knew the seed was used as food source though. What does this have to do with damping speakers? Easy to grow by the way and way healthy for you and personally, I like taste better than many other leafy greens.

I think it seems obvious that hemp seeds would be the ultimate material for mellowing out internal resonances.

It will be way mellow if the speakers overheat and catch fire. Reminds me of Cheech and Chong's Up in Smoke.
