Can you guys see the foam inside the matrix cabs? Do they have problems rotting over time, like many other foams from 20 yrs back?

on the bottom of the speaker. you flip it upside down and unscrew a panel that the speaker usually rests on.

I have some foam on the top of my B&W speakers (the mid/tweeter unit sits on a big piece of foam), and it's getting pretty funky. Probably still performs acoustically as new, but it looks lumpy and deteriorated. I suspect the material used for the matrix system is entirely different - a hard expanded styrene or something?

I just purchased a pair of b&w dm1800's off eBay for $300...all of the pics I've seen of these speakers don't show them with a front firing port & the mid bass woofer surround is different, have I been duped?

I have DM 1800' s .they are single wire..I Think this Bi Wire stuff is a sales gimmick...If the crossover is of good enogh quality that is all thats needed...Audio range is only hearable to around 9khz.. As long as the extra headroom is not pushed into distortion by the amp things should be ok...
