Nipper1 mentioned a tacky adhesive treatment, would have live in a completely dust free environment, or they would start to look awful after some time.

Fortunately, the cones are the color of dust ha ha! I really wanted to dope the back side of the cone but that's not an easy thing to do; small, tight geometry. This is the same tacky adhesive they use on cloth pleated woofer surrounds and some linen or other "cloth" dome tweeters. It really did clean-up the sound so well worth the effort. I'm glad to see the new Pluvia 7 P HD; it appears this newest design may "fix" all of my concerns and complaints about the Alpair 7P. I'll find out eventually as I am going to get a pair of the P7PHD's .

What the hell. If we could get inter-hemisphere shipping sorted, or find some other creative solution for delivery to the UK antipode, I'm happy to sign up for 50X.

@Scott,

Is the nostromo(large) also doable with the port on the front?

NZ, give or take a few nautical miles. If a group buy actually started to look viable, I could come up with alternative delivery locations in US or Taiwan. While I doubt we can get numbers, I'm serious about the prospect.

Nor me, I've just been stacked out with work. I'll try and build some Frugel-horns for the Pluvia 7P/HD next week. I've not figured out what to do with the little CHN 50 yet
