Nice one! Glad they improved the sound...

It gets even better, they are rehoused, focal, mini utopias. I use them point source. I just finished my 15 inch, twin pass radiator monster.
The sum total is, the MASSIVE woof, does NOT intrude on the midtweet anymore. Somehow, the woof has become ethereally part of music, and separate. The tweet reaches the ear directly, with minimal reflection. While I used to be able to pinpoint where the sound was coming from, and hear the sound go out of balance, as you move your head from rt to lft, the image stays solid. Which is nice, as I don’t have a balance on pre.
It quite literally, is the finest stereo I have ever heard. Many other tweeks as well.
With the lows going to somewhere actually, around 20s, I don't have to turn it up as loud anymore, and I get perfect insight into lyrics etc.
You really can help make your rig all it can be.
So, as I understand it, if we are talking seriously thick felt, you end up changing the radiation pattern of the tweeter. Some speakers have this deliberately built in, and use several centimeters of felt.
Others, like I use, use very thin, maybe 1/8" or less.
I think of the two as being quite different.
