Mike, LOL. I can't answer the phone if I'm not here. Smiley  I never said I did not respect your opinion! The purpose of the forum is to exchange ideas and thoughts. You are doing it.

 I am so busy building The Truth and so far behind I literally (not figuratively) have zero time to experiment.

Keep us posted.

It's not an experiment-it's a proven fact and when you get a 30 min break you really should try it-you won't be sorry.....Mike

With that mass of puddy on the magnet, the chamber of the driver has been reduced.

And of course Audio is made audible by vibrations. Damping anything in Audio will change the things how they vibrate and sound.

Wonder if that is the difference you are hearing.

It's not really a mass of "puddy" but a well applied ammount of ductseal.Sonic benefits are nothing short of amazing.Or maybe it's the placebo effect Ed mentioned.Sorry Ed it is real and sounds wonderfull!Nothing to lose by trying it-$2 of ductseal at Home Depot in electrical section.And half hr to apply to one Fostex.It can be easily removed with minimal effort but once you hear the benefits-you won't even think of removing.You will just apply to both speakers and enjoy!!!!!!

Has anyone measured the resonant frequency of the basket?

It's a cast basket and has high resonant frequency-thats why it is necessary to damp the basket.Just tap on a new fostex driver with a pencil and you can hear it.You have to deaden this to hear how good fostex can sound.Only can expect so much from a full range driver in this price range.But add ductseal and you will hear how good the 126 really is!!!!!!

Actually, it's stamped steel, not cast. This is why the "spokes" need to be damped and the junction between the magnet and basket as well.
