Need help with FA DBA-02 Acoustic Dampers

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi all. While cleaning my FA DBA-02, I pushed at least one of the acoustic dampers down to the end of the nozzle. I might've pushed the other acoustic damper further down into the nozzle, as well.

It would really help me out if someone could let me know the following:

1. How far down the nozzle is the acoustic damper supposed to be?

2. Is the actual white damper at the end by the nozzle or the driver?

3. Can you simply pry the nozzle from the driver housing and re-glue?

4. Has anyone tried different acoustic dampers? If so, what was the effect?

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide towards getting my DBA-02 back in good working order.

Well, I cracked them opened up and found that one damper was completely missing. The metal casing was still there on the other side, but the actual damper was missing. So now, I'm not sure which color damper was used.

Can someone please let me know which damper was used in them, so I can restore them to stock as needed. I'll probably just order a few different dampers from Mouser to make sure I've got the right one and can try a few others to see which tuning I prefer.

Thanks for any help you can provide!
