Maybe it's just me, but I finally got around to another listen last night to the 10Ps in the Hartman box (yes, after confirming phase), and found them lacking dynamics, LF extension and depth/breadth of "soundstage" compared to the FHXLs.

Had dinner guests over, one of whom is a long time musician (acoustic guitar/ electric bass), and his reaction was more prounced than my own - probably as he had no expectations.

Perhaps I am having the same experience with the A10P's in my own BR's. I had them in the 2-ch over stereo subs. They seemed a bit flat and slightly colored in the low midrange. I replaced them with the A7.3's. More open and dynamic. Sounded less colored. I attributed the problem to insufficient break-in and moved the A10P's to the HT for some long term hammering. They are doing an excellent job with movies and TV serials.

Could be. They're going to sound different, that's for sure.

Re the question, if you really must, I'd retain the original vent. But I'd also suggest that if you want a BR for the 10P, you'd be better off with one that was actually designed for it.

No dispute there Scott - if I was ever disposed to build another "conventional BR" for any of Mark's drivers, it'd be one specifically designed for the chosen driver.

But as the FHs and Pensils work so bloody well with every driver I've heard in them, I'm not sure I could muster the enthusiasm - except of course for a bespoke build.
