Just listened to some Fostex T50RPs today... WOW! - Page 237

post #3541 of 10873

Congrats Mr. Speakers!

 

Happy to see you implemented some of my ideas...glad to see they worked out. beerchug.gif

 

I knew someone else could get them to "Beyond LCD-2" levels. Can't wait to hear them at the meet!

Thanks to MrSpeakers and Hennyo for all their hard work! I have been pretty satisfied with my setup, but this has me curious. I think I am going to be doing this. I just need to find a source for Paxmate and FatMat.

 

Where have people been sourcing their stiff craft felt? I have some felt I have been using from WalMart (from another project) but I would like to try out this felt and see what I can do with it.

Michaels Craft Store has the stiff felt I've used...

Good work to mrspeakers and Hennyo! 

 

I tried acoustic foam to the inside of the baffle, in conjunction with the transpore tape, and felt it sucked out a lot of the sub-bass. However, I didn't even think to try it with the stiff craft foam. I'm looking forward to giving it a shot when I get home. Now that I have my LCDs back, I'd be happy to do some comparisons this weekend.

 

Thanks again for sharing, you guys.

Thanks, so far, guys.  I'm just happy to give back after the community exposed me to what has become a wonderful hobby, and the people who figured out that the T50 could really become SO much better!

 

I would note that the mods probably really are best done in their entirety.  The level of resolution these phones have is SO high that minor anomalies in the sound spectrum are easily heard, especially peaks.  Doing 80% of the mods or mixing and matching with other mods may really be a fail, so if possible I'd suggest get to the full Rastapants 2 mod before trying any changes.

post #3546 of 10873

I think I'll have to try the Rastapants 2. I'll have to buy some acoustic foam for myself and work at it.

 

If I already applied the acoustic foam to the outside of the baffle near where the bass vents are is it easy to remove?

post #3547 of 10873

Don't worry about the outside bass vents.  I'll play later but for now covering them is fine...

post #3548 of 10873

I meant the area around them. That's still uncovered since I'm too lazy but I assume dynamat and then a layer of paxmate over it unless I'm reading it wrong which is possible as I'm really tired now. I already applied acoustic foam there so was wondering if that was easy to remove. I would just get another T50RP but those are impossible to find right now :p

 

I'll try it sometime next week however

post #3549 of 10873

If my directions aren't clear, people, let me know where and I'll edit, but not until Sunday.  I will also post photos which should make it easier...

post #3550 of 10873

That looks amazing! Directions aren't confusing at all.

 

But what does the paxmate on the baffles do? Is it just to reduce the inside volume into more of a circular shape?

NO...it helps control the stray reflections from the driver and the rear of the cup.

Silver Fostex is on their way! L3000.gif

post #3553 of 10873

What is this silver fostex?

post #3554 of 10873

^T40RP. Silver is the color of the cup metal, hence I call them 'silver and gold' :P

oohhh..are you going to attempt to mod them as well like you did to the T50RP? It would be interesting to know how they compare and how close they can get.
