IPL S5TL Kevlar

That tannoy cloth is a fucking nightmare to use, got some electric blue for the L300 covers and it was a complete mare to get crease free in the corners.

Went with some stretchy stuff in the end.

Mine have been raw mdf for nigh on 20 years, they’ve lived in storage or a garage for roughly half of those and still sound great now they are my ‘office speakers’
Many people just paint them. Maybe slap a bit of poly filler on the cracks to smooth thing out if you feel like it.

One thing I notice that may exacerbate your fruity bass is that they should have small stands that elevate the end of the transmission line off the floor by about 6 inches.


Are the ‘stands’ a hollow box or similar?

Yep they can be filled with sand or lead shot or something. I never did.

I have a couple of open boxes which I’ll try first. I’ve read that some people try to lean the speakers back a little - half squash balls under the front or similar.

A little experimentation is always fun. :slight_smile:

Anything to get the tweeter not firing at your shins.
