Well it sounds very similar in my ears but it is better when I open that door since that bass peak is less. Maybe maybe a little calmer in middle range but I am not sure. I will try one last thing: trying to dampen walls with all stuff I can get on the walls and measure again, brb.

Nah it did not work, looks about the same. It seems like that polyester wool is not very effective damping mids.

Best to leave it for now, I get nowhere at the moment . And who knows, maybe most of it is room related after all. But they sound good with most music.

Some good news: I listened to Norah Jones with headphones to compare with the speakers and I could actually hear some "shouting/hardness/forwardness" even with headphones in the same places as with the speakers. Last time I compared it was a big difference (old position of speakers in the other direction). My memory said it had none of that problem with headphones but it was actually there but since the difference was big I probably believed it had no "shouting" (wrong!) .

Always headphones are a good check.

Yes, I feel a little stupid, but since it has a slight middle range hump I was fooled .

In wide angles above its pistonic range the 8inch is weak for dispersion. Letting it have bit more direct it offsets it somehow.

I kept about half of that extra stuffing since It might have calmed it down a little and compensate slightly for my extra bracing stealing volume.

Slowing the velocity by damping is like expanding volume, yep.
