Default Duct Seal the Radio Shack 40-1310 ??

Click the image to open in full size.

I removed the plastic housing and the cheap 2order X.

I plan on mounting on front baffle w/ 1uF cap. Has anyone used duct seal or modeling clay on the outside of the lower 'throat'? I'm thinking doing so may deaden the sparkle of the super-tweeter. But I'm not sure...

damping the back of the horn is a good idea.

I know this is a very late reply, but I have damped the horn with duct seal. The improvement in sound is very subtle.

More info is available at my website:
