I can tell you from Martins coating I did not notice spl differences in comparison to a stock good 988 panel.
I was expecting a slight difference and they were the same which was a total surprise to me.

Did you measure that? Or did you do it by ear? As I see no numbers I suspect by ear. How big a difference in SPL can you detect by ear and be able to remember it to make a genuine comparison? 3 dB? Less? More? Was the SPL the same over the whole frequency spectrum. What was the condition of the "stock" panel? Was it re-coated in earlier years? Was the speaker bought new or second hand? Was the speaker abused? And so on ..... and so forth ....

I'm sorry to say I find most of the information on this forum to be overly subjective, not supported by any measuring or numbers. Without the support of any measurement I'm sorry to say it is just your personal opinion, nothing more and nothing less. I love to hear personal opinions, but I love cold hard evidence a lot more.
And please remember that this is just my personal opinion, nothing more and nothing less.

@wout; lets remind you of your own quote regarding your coating:
" Never heard a Quad ESL-63 set sound like it sounds now with this coating. But beware it is not only the coating, there is much much more to take care of.
"
Seems like a rather subjective statement to me as well.

Also it is better to have a skilled subjective comparison than lousy measurements who are out of scale because of some error.

Just my 2 cents.

Quite an assumption or do you know the person directly?
