    Yup, it's only out to make removing and refitting the foam easier

    Slight hiccup, the acoustic foam needs to be changed

    Replacement wonít be here until Tuesday so wonít get them finished until then.

    Iíll do the Silent Coat soundproof mat and extra bracing tomorrow, then Iíll just have to sit and admire the crossovers when they arrive on Monday.

    I should have bought the wedge shaped stuff, not the egg box one, no major difference but Paulís tweaks are based on the wedge version so Iíll stick to that, no real issue only an extra days wait.

    Yes, as they are attached to the original crossovers and the new ones bypass everything, the tone controls will be put back in once foaming done, but only to fill the gap they come out of and not leave a gaping hole in the front baffle.
