WOW! Look at all the changes! Felt over the tweeters, chunky monkey is wrapped and, best of all, a shiny Onkyo with no finger prints or dust! Color me impressed!

:text-bravo:

Question: would you categorize the felt as a night-and-day improvement or just barely audible?

Not night-and-day, but definetly audible. I wouldn't consider any "tweak" night-and-day, unless of course it's Z-Sleeves, 6moon Acoustic Devices or Flints Blue Can Audio Spray. :eek:bscene-buttred: The only exception would be acoustic treatments, they had a large impact on sound quality.

Ok, Bats, now your turn. :mrgreen:

^^ Okay now I'm convinced that you've simply lost your mind... :eek:bscene-drinkingcheers:
Granted, now if Flint will post a pic of his blue can audio spray, you'll see I'm not the only one who's lost his mind.

Course I lost my mind about 15 tax seasons ago, and I'm not getting it back anytime soon. :happy-smileygiantred:

Great pics. I had the felt tweak on my B&W 602s3 for a few years and it was a good thing when I was sitting 15' away in a large room. When I moved the speakers into my small room sitting 5' away, the felt seemed to screw it up. When I took the felt off, it was a easy choice to leave it off. I still have it on my B&W LCR600 CC speaker.

....think the rears are close enough lol

Is that a problem for getting a good level? I used to have my rears close like that and it was fine for ME in my sweet spot because I had it calibrated but the person on the other side of my couch was "L channel heavy".

Now I have in-ceiling rears which sounds better than I expected.
