  • Ive owned over a 100 pairs of speakers in my life time. All of them had grill cloth covers. So my ears like that grill cloth sound. Even DML's sound good with grill cloth. I watched a Magnepan video on how they made there speakers and they use a grill cloth sock that wraps around the whole speaker like Def.Tech or Mirage Bipolars. To bad P.E. didnt make grill cloth sock cover.

    My P.E. package arrived yesterday and those Jantzen copper foil wax inductors OH MY GOODNESS. They sound more refined with more detail and spatial air around the soundstage then the Jantzen air cores. I played that Dominique fil am Birds track and the sound of the birds taking off did scare me last night. LMAO

      Although that is a good idea to remove exciters without damaging the plastic coil adding that extra mass will change the way the exciter sounds.

      • My order arrived on Thursday.....I said to myself I better order some more exciters before the price increases and low and behold the Tectonic Element Exciters are now almost "DOUBLE" the price then what I've paid for them just 5 days ago.

          • Are These DML Foam Panels Really the WORLD'S BEST DIY SPEAKERS?? - YouTube

            Here is a accurate review of Tech Ingredients DML design. He states T.E. is a genius a super smart guy which is why he was surprised that T.E. was pleased with the sound quality of his build/design. The answer is simple, T.E. is NOT an AUDIOPHILE and has not heard even a decent sounding system to compare and base them against.

            Even T.E. newest vid I posted above his test subjects are not audiophiles but rather joe blow down the block with there Bose system. lol

              At least one of the fellows mentioned that the system fell short of some really nice-sounding headphones....and you can easily get some very flat-frequency overears for around $99 or some very flat earbuds for $20-30. Good headphones aren't inherently expensive.

              Also probably worth mentioning (for anyone thinking panels like this could be a good OR bad idea) is that it still needed a subwoofer crossed around 150hz, which means instead of the panels it could've simply used a couple of tiny 1-3liter 2ways with the same sub to get a very flat and low-distortion sound.
              Each option still has its own slight advantages and disadvantages, but the small 2ways are comparably cheaper+smaller+more predictable (easier to design for) while the panels have the potential for slightly smaller X-axis depth (only IF you mount against wall) and may have different room and microphone interactions (which may or may not matter for individual uses). I think the panels will also typically be higher-efficiency, but this only matters if getting a 20-30watt amplifier is a challenge.
              Panels may also lend a different sound character to some extent and a unique or "cool" factor...but the latter varies per individual.
              Not saying one or the other is inherently better/worse, since it depends on what you want.
