Cool Original Stuffing in ESS AMT 3 - Help?

Are there any AMT 3 owners out there that can give me a good
description of how they were originally stuffed? I want to build
clones and have the big AMT's, the recommended Eminence
1040SF's and Alpha 6's, and have the x-overs covered (triamp
via active). I have the dimensions pretty well worked out, but as
these things were overdamped BR - I would like to be able to
faithfully reproduce just exactly how they were originally stuffed -
both the cabs and the mid-bass enclosure tube.
Any details would be GREATLY appreciated.
You know, was it just walls and a sheet behind the drivers? Two
sheets? Full wall-to-wall? And if so, was it loose, middling, tight?
Was it bonded dacron sheet? Loose batts? A combination of both?
Something else? Upholstery dacron, Acoustistuf, 'glass, wool? Any
felt or foam on the walls or tube? Ditto for the mid-bass driver
containment tube, how was it damped inside?
I just don't have access to one to study, and doubt I will any time soon.
Any help would be really appreciated.
