Hi Bill, thank you for the explanation. It helps.

This is a schematic view of the Beolab 8000 internals:

BL 8000

From top to bottom: top plate, bass port, tweeter, 2 woofers, amplifier section, base cone.

The new damping looks like this:

Damping Original

Then after your comment, it blocks the high frequencies from the tweeter, but allows low frequencies coming from the woofers to “fill” the whole speaker, right?

I should add that if the kit didnt come with instructions, I would have placed them like that:

Damping Alt

To “push” all the air towards the bass port.
