grado sr60i cup tuning - Page 3

mrhee. when you get to dealing with the outer finish for the tiger maple. consider concentrated liquid dyes. It's a great way to put an even and easy but still deep tint to the maple. The link below shows an example. they used 2 colors and tinted it to taste. Then a thin clear coat over the top.

yes, the tiger figure will POP. plus you can tint it to your desired color and darkness level. The dyes are a bit pricey but they are so potent you can do a cup with a few drops. one or two bottles will las a lifetime.

It has nothing to do with the plastic , it's the wider opening at the end of the cup, opening everything up: bigger wider sound stage bigger an defined bass and cleans up the mids and the highs.

Hey when your done testing all these woods are you considering parting with any of them?  I bought wood cups for my SR80 drivers which were not a close fit at all, I was sanding them down and broke one of my cups :-(  

 

I came here looking for information on making my own, but looks like i would need to buy a bunch of wood working equipment...
