The D2000 came to me Lawton modded, with plastic cups, so I then had Martin make the cups. I put Alpha pads on a few months before the new cups and feel they made the bass improve as well. So it has the damping on the driver only and am thinking about doing the cups.
My D7000 came to me stock 100%, then I sent them to Mark L for the full damping job and put on his angle pads. Came back and blew my mind how good it sounded. Now I put Alpha pads on the phone about a month ago and think I'm staying with this combo. Have the angle pads but doubt I'll put them back on.
I am seriously considering having Mark L do his thing to my TH900, crazy as that sounds. Figure the improvement I heard from his work on my D7000 might hold true. And if so, then I'd be a bit impressed.
you are evil! :)
i'm almost convinced i NEED a pair of D2000 with martin's cups followed by mark's tuning...plus alpha pads! now i just need to work out how to afford this!!! :)
