Doping speakers

Unread post by jimbob » Wed Apr 10, 2019 12:04 pm

Reading about the doping of speakers for an open baffle application it was mentioned to dope the back of the cone as well as the front. Would this be a case of treating the back with plastidip or would bison also be used?

You can't do it and you don't need to, it is the same sound from the back as from the front. Front doping is all you need.

I do have the docs speakers. The doping is just something I’m interested in trying and learning. It’s always nice to be able to do something yourself.
