Well, I've not not-tried it. I always rubbed in some water after sanding with 120, let it dry thoroughly, and then continued with 220. That's the processed advised by my wife's uncle, an experienced carpenter, who says the oil can raise the grain when it absorbs into the wood, which you don't want after sanding down with fine grit. It can lead to uneven absorption as well as sub-optimal smoothness in the end, so it's better to raise the grain before the fine-grit sanding stages. I read some other advice online that said to sand to 120, raise the grain, sand at 120 again, and then proceed to 220 and finer.


Anyway, I don't want to thread-jack anymore, so I'll try it on scrap with and without raising, and report later.

I'll have to try that, certainly worth a test on scrap.

Thank you for the insights.

Cheers,

Update:
I've had the CGR's running for four months now. Using the Aleph J, Topping D30,SYS passive pre and Tidal. This is a great combo. I had been on a audio upgrade for years. I don't feel the need to improve now. The CGR enclosures and the 10P drivers perform really well.
