    Glenn, you could have kept that for yourself, opening up a modding biz. "Your cab lacks punch and definition, try the new secrete 15 minutes FSM mod." ;)

    I'm surprised no one asked for "tight screw" impulses so far! :lol:

    One last clip... this time with dual mics pulled out to 5 inches distance from the cab...

    I'm really beginning to like miking cabs from a distance... the top end is smoother & the bottom isn't nearly as obnoxious.
    Clip at five inches

    +1 to micing cabs from a distance. I figured out in about 10 minutes that the HB cab tended to sound better when I backed the mic off to about 4 inches. Doesn't work with everyone though, depending on the liveness of the room.

    You should do an impulse of only the "tigthening screwing process" so that we could impulsevely tighten our untightened cab impulses.

    Sorry, im currently living in a small apartment and have no possibilities to record it. :erk:

    Oh, and to you guys that are going to tighten the screws: DO NOT over-tighten the screws to your speakers, or you will bend the "frame" and fuck them up for all eternity!

    Holy shit...how do we have to tighten these screws? :D Loosen make the speakers sound like shit, overtighten it's not good.
    I know that a screw has to be tight very good....if the screw turns softly I continue to tight it until it becomes hard.

    It should be tight enough so that if you grab the magnet and pull, push and wiggle it, you shouldnt feel it moving anything.
    And im sorry for not mentioning that in my original post! I was extremely tired when i posted. ;P

    Notuern is talking about speakers mounted on the baffle, whereas I'm talking about the back panel that should be air tight.
