Wow almost 4 months since I last posted! Summers are short around here so had other priorities but now that there's a frost warning out for tonight I can start updating the thread a little more often
I worked directly with Dave at Ascend to resolve my blown mid woofers. He charged me a highly discounted rate for the replacements and I sent in the woofers for him to inspect. Had there been a manufacturing defect then he would have reimbursed me fully for the cost. He sent me back this pic, unfortunately it looks like I just cooked the coils:
Catch up time. Black velvet being inserted into curved track on front soffit. The velvet was pinched behind piano hinge at the top of the screen. I covered the shiny hinge with a roll of adhesive black velvet. This worked out well. I also have an extra Jamestown screen like the one here that I will be selling (235 aspect, 118" wide, acoustically transparent). If anyone is interested then please PM me.
