Would that sort of stuff be available from a vendor like... ah... er... Planet10-HiFi?

If you know that guy, have him send me an email.

I want to chill the BD's a little in the midrange low treble range. They're a little bright. Any ideas?

Here's a commonly used filter for this enclosure.

To really open up the midrange you should really try Planet10 phase plugs for the front drivers, as well as cone treatment and basket frame damping.

Also play a bit with placement - it's been quite a while since I've had a pair of these running in my system, but when I did they were well away (18-24") from side/back walls, and placed diagonally accros a single corner.

Lastly, try running a single strand of CAT5 conductor per polarity.

Yep, I find these guys a little bright too. I tried the phase plugs and they helped, but they are still a little bright.

Try moving them around to minimize refelctions off the back wall.

If you go with the filter and you use a tube amp, you may as well also add in a zobel.
