you can get Kapton thinner than 1 mill but its not widely available and will likely cost a bunch. I have seen as thin as .3 mill and have some .5 mill in tape form.

Also not sure if its an issue BUT Kapton is a bit hydroscopic. I wonder if its tendency to absorb water will effect speakers capacitance or change resistance??

Thanks, I found the 0.3 mil one, but it will still require coating it seems https://catalog.cshyde.com/viewitems...e-film-type-hn.
I am hoping to find thin carbon loaded Kapton XC, but that one is 1 mil and up.
I live in California, high humidity the last years is rarely a problem.
