Sounds easy enough, thanks! Do you think Dynamat would be necessary if I'm not even going to vent/poke holes in the driver?

Mine covers both holes and I noticed no loss. It may be the reason I noticed no benefit as well though. (Still haven't vented them though)

If you aren't venting the driver, I feel that is unnecessary. Damping it smooths out the sound and prevents rattle. Until you vent the drivers, they really aren't pushing enough air to warrant damping.

Perhaps it doesn't make a difference. I didn't really test. Though I am always wary of covering up any holes that weren't covered or protected to begin with.

Again, damping without venting makes little to no difference. Try poking 4 holes (you can cover them back up if you don't like it), its a great improvement.

LOL. I have the entire back of the driver covered with several layers of the stuff. Covering the two little holes isn't a concern, as the holes don't even serve any real function (as was discussed many months ago in this thread).

The problem I have with covering it back up is the felt is not completely obtrusive. The dynamat solution is not going to allow the same airflow that the felt stuff does. And I'm holding off until I get some wood going on. After they're all shelled out, I figure 4 is a good place to go since Grado does it on all of the wooden ones themselves.

The reason I don't want to vent the driver is because I actually love the way the bass sounds right now, so I don't want to increase it by venting the drivers. But we'll see how that changes when I get my wood cups and bowl pads. tongue_smile.gif

so far I have:

 

  • removed the front cloth
  • removed the i housing and replaced it with non i housing (this to achieve the following)
  • removed the grill, totally.
  • punched all 10 holes
  • confused L and R to the point that i dont know which is which anymore

 

and yes, there is a change in the sound, more airy and open (lol of course it has no grill)

i am waiting to GTFO of here and get some dynamat, next week.

this would prove helpful

The two holes are for venting the voice coil.

I realize this, but covering them up has caused no ill effects. Hell, I have three layers of dynamat over the back and there aren't any problems. I'll post pictures tomorrow, it's late.

JamesMcProgger and to all those who during the modding proccess to lose Left and right, this site will help by just emiting sound out of the left or right driver.

Hello, I used "sombra" (shadow) funtion. If you use texture you can simulate any material, but is more laborious.

These look amazing! Great work, were these made on a CNC router or by hand on a lathe with chisels?

 

 

And hey all, does anyone know if the Beyer Dynamic DT 770 replacement headband is leather or not? From the look I'm guessing it is fake leather, but I can't find anywhere that says if it is or not, I'm just hoping to hear from someone who owns one. I'm crossing my fingers that it's fake leather or leatherette as I lead a vegan lifestyle and need a non-leather headband replacement.
