[quote author=zinker  link=1113323574/60#73 date=1123195226]Brad,
When I spoke to Steve he said that the passives definitly need break in time, just like the drivers.

I do have a couple of questions for you.
When you installed the new foam did you remove any of the existing dampening material? Could you describe the existing dampening material for me? Is it 1/2" felt?
I am beginning to think that some of the poor sound issues I am experiencing may be due to insufficient dampening. I installed the convoluted foam as Steve describes in his mods, but other than that the only other material I've added is some poly fill  in the tops of the speaker chamber. I have not extended the port tubes yet , nor have I had the drivers gelled.
Please keep us posted.
Thanks,

Only thing I removed was the stuffing (wool?) above the driver.
If I remember correctly, this is what I was supposed to do... ?
Wink  I'll betcha that gel wax is intended to smooth out the slightly bright/rough high-end that I'm hearing with the mod - again on some recordings. I wonder what other effects it has on the sound?

You need to add a ZBox to the Sony 999.

Take care,

Corey

Why?  The output is quite sufficient.

Hey muzik
I used expoxy for the pvc to mdf. I first took some 120 grit sandpaper and roughed up the end thats going to be glued into the the mdf.

Liquid nails or most multi-purpose "construction adhesive" should work fine.  This is the type of stuff used to glue granite counter tops to wood kitchen cabinets. Sticks to almost anything and cheap. See Home Depot or most any hardware store.
