Please read my previous post...plus I PM'd RockBob about it too...

Rock Jaw is looking for information on how to improve the sound of something that they can bring to market in a retail package. Not something you gotta stick a piece of gum on the ass of to get a better sound...

Throttle back a notch...:wink_face:  The idea isn't to offer a half-a**ed mod, but to see if you like the sound and then ask for a filter which mimics it the closest.

BTW, that's exactly what I did in a PM to RockBob...I described what I did and the effect it had in order to demonstrate the sound impressions I was talking about, and to suggest a third set o' filters.

Sometimes the best ideas start out as chewing gum and bailing wire "fixes"

...and don't forget the spit!

P.S. - I'm sure after what I said above that Bob is NOT going to want these back...for any reason...:veryevil: (and yes, I know we can keep them)

No apologies necessary.  I think we all want these guys to succeed and want to help in our own way.  My way just happens to be a little "unorthodox".:D

Guys I try all kinds if funny stuff in the workshop. And yes silly putty or blue tack is used.

I did in fact use HK sends idea to test. And now translating into a 3rd filter : )

Sometimes its great to use what bits of scrap and sticky tape you got laying around before getting into tooling.

But love the passion you guys are showing. Its a wonderful thing to see and hope we can do you proud.

Glad your along for the ride!

Tinkered with the Acero's tonight...

I Installed a disk or the wife's quilting batting on the back of each cup, the resonant boominess certainly disappeared and possibly a little too much of the bass quantity with it.

I also tried a spare pair of German Maestro pleather pads which have a larger opening providing more comfort than the smaller opening in the stock pads.

 

I don't know anything about what materials provide the best results, and if any holes need to be opened or covered on the baffle. Just tinkering. :D 

 

Need a way to put the padded headband much closer to the stainless steel band, if the ends of the padded one were an inch longer on each side the padded band would sit very close to the stainless band instead of the current 1" gap, which would look better IMHO.

Sorry for not being helpful with any mods frown.gif not confident enough to do any mods ATM.

We are part way through a third filter that bridges the gap between the black and silver, sort of a middle of the road between the two.

But sure post what you have if you wish.

Cheers

i think the problem is the driver itself. better focus in that, before the filters.

With then greatest respect, the Alfa driver is fine. Its a great little unit. I think it all boils down personal preference.
