Reply To: A question for Geoff Martin on BL8000 Damping…

    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.
