Thread Starter 
hi

I have a pair of ruark prologue one R speakers, i was thinking about weighting them with dry sand or lead shots to tighten the bass. But i am unsure of how much sand or lead shots to put in can any one help me? 3 liters is the most my speakers can be loaded

experiment

it's a lot of trouble finding what will work best for your system and your ears, and there isn't a formula for this type of thing... make up a mixture and see if it improves the sound. then, if you found that playing with sand and lead is time well spent, dump that mixture and change the ratio.

you are dealing with resonant frequencies, but the real question is if mass loading will be benefical to your speakers. you can sit around and listen to minute differences in your different mixes or just set it and forget about it. or don't mix at all and just fill it with sand (or lead). it's really up to you how far you take it.

relax, don't forget that this is supposed to be fun, and enjoy the music.

best,
carlo.
