I use blu-tac, and only some masking tape under the stand to protect the floor.

Starre isn't it better to isolate the box from the stand with the stone?

Well Dufus, then it gets too high...with a lower stand it would work, better I do not know...
I am glad I kept that 2.5mH coil lol, bass is more prominent and it swings a lot more!
I think I have seen those Mission speakers, Salas, but it also reminds me of another newer design (the look of the stand) but I can´t remember the makers name.

Maybe 2.5mH a saver, because of the extra front surface you added, it may have lowered your step transition point. Something like Wilson Watt and Beard accessory.

Yes that is possible, the thought has crossed my mind, but I tried this panel before adding the weight and it had a very sligth effect. What is strange(?) is that the speaker seem more sensitive now, I had to lower the volume on my preamp a little not to play too loud. Less energy lost in the box, maybe?

One is that, the more it rocks about on a pedestal the more it dissipates mechanically than putting it in room, the other is if it picked up in the mid bass, the ear is feeling it since the power band in music is 200-800Hz.

I can always remove the panel if wanted, it is loose. I wonder if a third round rod would help....

Fix it up better first, to evaluate.

Yes, I need to get used to the "new sound" and then maybe if needed a slight change. I have more respect for that woofer now, it is better playing bass than I thought possible . Also the middle range is better and clearer. I remember earlier when I tried how much damping to use and I was not very good evaluating the sound. But some time ago I noticed that when watching movies listening to dialouge, it had a kind of ghost voice sound (a bit hollow or echo) and I thought it should be like that (that it was resolution/detail). But after adding some more damping and (bracing) it disappeared, and I hope it is correct. When listening to pure music it was harder to detect this, making me unsure if more damping was needed.

Salas do you think making the font panel from thick slab of aluminum would be improvement?
Magico uses aluminum so is AAD.
