Just out of curiosity, on the IC with the F-12's, do you have the strain relief spring underneath the tekflex? Reason why I ask is because today when i was builidng my first one, (YAY! pics to follow with suggestions for the guide), I couldn't get the tekflex to fit under the strain relief, but now i think i might just try sticking the spring underneath it, and heatshrink the ends.....*thinks devious thoughts about building next IC...*

Lol, thanks Scottder, compliments on my work always make my day

Flecom the DT990s improved about as much as my DT880s did, it added a bit more extension in the treble and a slighty more coherent midrange. Certainly worth the price of admission.
