Mathieu: I will be at my storage locker tomorrow will see if the parts are close to the front. In the mean time I will share a mod which sounds very silly but works extreemly well. Get some galvanized screen with about 1 cm openings the kind which has all the wire overlap points soldered so there is no buzz or rattle. Cut pieces largre enough to cover the full outside surface of each panel. use some tale and some small amount of foam to space the wire mesh just off of the plastic louvre so it cannot buzz. solder a length of insulated wire small gage is fine to the screen and ground them. Place the screen on both both sides of your panels. This will take about three days to fully have effect. Easy to do fully reversible give it a try. Best regards Moray James.

Default another mod ?

Moray,

If I catch it well :
- Prepare 4 galvanized screens for one 1+1 speaker
- Remove the cloth
- Glue the galvanized screen connected to the ground on eaceh side of the pannels.

Then the pannels are 'screened'... Have you any clue of the way it improves the pannels operation ?


Regards and thanks again to look into your 'old' stock,
Mathieu

well my best guess is that the grounded grid or screen bleeds charge build up in the plastic louvre structure. That would account for the fact that the full effect takes two to three days to fully come around. You catch it very well so please do give it a try. Best regards Moray James.
