    Activated Charcoal as damping material

    I'd be hugely surprised if it made any difference. The Q of the overall speaker and hence the bass extension Vs group delay (tightness of the sound) is largely reliant on the size of the cabinet. Changing the amount of the stuffing moves that one way or the other. Different stuffing does react in a different way of course but just really comes down to energy absorption, that come down to the size of the fibres and thier ability to turn the energy into heat and wick it away. A change in the amount of stuffing would have a hugely bigger effect on the amount of damping than a change in material. Removing some of your stuffing will result in slightly lower bass performance BUT also a longer group delay. It'll also change the shape of your fall off. You'll get much more bass just moving them closer to the wall.

    DIY LP-12 plinth

    I think they would turn out to expensive. Some of them have got about £400 of timber in them, add at the very minimum 2 days labour and very quickly they are over £1000, probably nearer £1200. If a dealer was going to take them on rather that direct sales they'd be even more. I'd like to be able to offer them but even though Linn fanboys are prepared to spend this might be a bit rich. I'm trying to have a think about this though. At the show loads of people expressed an interest in at least seeing them as a product.

    New multi channel ncore amplifier

    I'm not doing the fault sensing 😀 just recording them and generating an error mode for the user.

    Just a little video for those interested in this amp, it shows the 'interface' and error modes.

    Yeah, to be fair last year ours moved, this year they didn't, they were 'built in'.

    They aren't. Shame quite a few speakers need boundary loading.

    Well after going all the way back to Warwick to get an LP-12 belt we got back to Kegworth and set up. After 5 mins Andy's amo let go. Luckily i've got spare parts from an old build of my own. ... Back in Warwickshire. Back in the car we went! We got back about 1:30 this morning and had a well deserved pint or two. This morning we striped Andy's amp down to find a little metal prezzie from his daughters inside which had shorted the PSU and taken the amp channel down too. It was lucky the speakers were not killed! Anyway at 5 to 10 we finally had glorious music 😀
