If you're willing to post <500g to me I'll take that offer. Is that plenty to do two 8" midwoofers? Eminence Beta 8A...

Thanks,
Simon

Is your aim to stick it on baskets for damping, or to seal the mounting face? If the former have you considered proper damping panels cut to size? I'm sure you could get some offcuts of really good butyl based damping material from a car audio enthusiast.

Hi Rich, I haven't considered butyl, is that a type of rubber?

I have plenty of adhesive bitumen, but that doesn't always stay on frames so well and I fancied trying something more substantial...

Yes - the aim is to damp the basket/frame of drivers, initially.

One of the biggest pros of proper car damping panels is they stick better than generic bitumen pads, are thicker and their composition (the best are a butyl substrate) damp better than bitumen too.

Have a look at Second Skin Damplifier Pro and see if you can get some offcuts from a good car audio dealer.

The damping pads are OK for damping but can't get into the crevices or shape the exit like you can with ductseal.

I'd be happy to send some. I have too do up 4 FE206s, let me actually calibrate how much is needed. Can you post a pic of the back of the drivers?

That looks like it will have about the same ductseal footprint as a 206, so it should be a good reference.

Interesting, I'd be tempted to try some in my car at some point, do you use the stuff?

Excellent. Hit me with a cost when you're ready, and I'm in no hurry whatsoever with this. I still have to construct my baffles

I've just got a new motor and will be fitting the Second Skin Speaker Kit which includes a Deflex-style dissipative panel and deadening.

I've always wondered about the efficacy of Deflex pads. I'd love to hear your verdict of these new panels. What car you got btw?
