Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

RE: Well it was once said you could almost Weld With Krell

When I took the mid-bass drivers out to have them repaired I noticed the neoprene rubber was used as a liner to insulate the inside of the cabinet underneath the dampening materials which could mean to help mitigate the cabinet resonance. Also, the baffles were made with a 2" thick MDF again the neoprene rubber was glued on the front of it to help minimize the drivers' diffraction.

Based on my listening experience within the last 3 weeks during the breaking-in period I concur that the cabinets are very inert. Compared to my B&W 801 speakers the Genesis III seems to be able to revibrate the resonance in my listening room at 24Hz according to my calculations.

I still have things to do with them as I need to fix the lower and upper midrange drivers' dust caps that were pushed in on one of the speakers. I'm not sure what are safe methods to use. Some would say to use magic glue put it on the tip of a cotton swab hold it on the dust cap for a minute and pull or make a needle hole on the dust cap and pull and or use the ultimate nuclear method which is to use the vacuum to pull it...
