Thanks I did not know that was possible.

The consequences of eating spicy food the next day are quite different from the consequence of listening to sibilant music :)

I defently like mine with the breathing hole closed, I hope it doesnt damage the driver, I need to conform before closing it for good. 

 

Can someone else try to see when their bass port is closed and they block the tiny hole if their is an audible tonal change? I think maybe my bass port has gone loss, I dont remember them sound like this. 

 

EDIT: How embarrassing, I just realized I had my bass port opened all the way instead of all the way close. I need to mark where the fully closed port is.

Note that not all of these subjects have been tested under the same conditions at the same time, but data was gathered from various studies and averaged into one curve. To put things into perspective, the world population consists of roughly 7,100,000,000 (7.1 billion) people.

 

Having said that, HRTF variance is actually taken into account in Rin's graphs in form of a target corridor with blue and red dotted min/max lines. This corridor is about 4db wide in the range where our ears are most sensitive and for which ABX tests have shown that differences of 1db or more are definitely audible. Which, in my understanding, means that HRTFs of different individuals can differ quite audibly and may still be considered as within tolerance of the same DF target corridor.

 

Jm2c, from a skeptical layman's point of view. smile_phones.gif


Thanks a lot for this...I think these 4db account (and ego) for many an argument on this forum...

Does the shell still have an opening somewhere? Small pin size hole maybe? Eke?

Try not to close it completely. It's a pretty large driver, and it needs to breathe for optimal performance.

LOL. The hole is definitely not small.

Ah, that explains a lot. 

 

The first line is the closed position, and the "o" is the fully open position.

 

Edit: dammit, triple post. Apologies.

+1 for honesty. You could have gotten away with that one.

Roger! Thanks. I can see a hole in this ASG 2 pic but it could just be the ambient port option talked about(not stock).


I was starting to wonder how they avoided driver flex... blurry picture is blurry. (T_T)


They look glossy in comparison to this pic:


Is it just the camera/lighting or is this pic a computer render? The goal they were going for with finish?

No no, this is why i was puzzled on why a sudden change in tonality, I had mine running non-stop ever since I recieved them and I must have opened the port all the way so I can let the dynamic driver breath more and open and flex more. All good :D

Wasn't it said they come from factory at 1/4 open?

Yes they do but I find it way too much. At that position it is all mid bass. I have mine right now set between the fully closed and the 1/4 opened. At that position the bass port actually starts to open, any less the bass port is closed.

 

The bass port metal has a strip carved on it that widens as you open the port more. From what I could see the strip cut starts to be visible when the bass port position set at the position I explained earlier. 

 

=-=-=-=-

I am just curious on the damping material they used at the back of the dynamic driver.

My ASG-1 and AS-2 were sent back to Aurisonics 6 weeks ago. Now I am still waiting.
