Appreciate your advise, not sure how to upload the photo in my previous post was not proper loaded (though I have inserted the URL image and photo size) Nevermind, since it's very minor issue, not going to touch or bother the woofer. I may use air...

I was told by few friends that ATC speakers have been tested with wide range frequencies during QA/QC test, is that consider break in ?

An upgrade ? From Sonus Faber to Harberh speaker
@rsf507 Interesting...May I know why Harbeth is not recommended in your opinion? What about ATC bookshelves passive speakers like SCM 7, SCM 11 , etc
