Default TangBand W3-871S Mods

What kind of mods, such as dampening certain areas of the driver and whatnot are out there to help increase the performance and sound quality of the TangBand W3-871S?

Also, I have heard these drivers often require a notch filter. What exactly is the best notch filter for this driver and what values should I use. Also, what ratings are required for the parts, i.e. 5 watt for resistors, or 21 gauge air core inductors....

thanks!

For speaker mods, you could look at:

Mark has some documented mods to the W3-881S

As for a notch, it would be speaker dependent.

Here is one example with the W3-871S

Good luck,
