I use double sided tape (thick) with the cover left on one side so it's like dampening material in thickness. I do not use just regular tape. Not for final mod anyway.
I was gunning for you to get the Wang because they could be returned.
The more you know....the more you know.
Now we have somebody (you) who can speak directly to how they fail to measure up. For me it was the lack of amping because of the amp on board already.
You know them better than most now.
That's a good thing.
I just spent 3 hours with 3 cans I will never buy...probably but I wanna know.
Knowledge is power.
The part I bolded.
If everyone would remember that this place would be much funner than it already is.
I used to try and stuff my opinion down throats....why?...I dunno?
I grew outta that.
I enjoy myself much more now.
1 is going on the list and replacing one on the list now
1 is little bro of the 2000 and it has a bigger bass....
1 is so similar to the 1500 but needs negative eq to get to where the A&H go without fancy eq tricks.
Well it's noteworthy that my JVC 55 had one vent and my 77 had none but it became clear that 2 open across from each other and a pole vent sealed gave the loudest deepest bass.
Your Kracken are the first I have seen open and bingo. No pole vent and 2 open vents.
That close proximity on the Kracken would seem to limit amp headroom just a tad but the 2 open vents is matching my trial and error stuff. For deep loud bass on a 50mm driver for sure and a 57mm the airing of the rear diaphragm is a huge plus.
Your Kracks were already put together with a mind to big bass.
The e12 low boost is the final killer for many cans. They can jold out until that low boost is thrown on top of everything. It happens again and again to cheap cans and expensive cans.
