    I have had a sample from them for about a year now. What you get is a sample in a gallon can. It's not full. It's a heavy paste like spackle.

    This doesn't help you?

    weight applied

    you need a unit weight per area applied to be able to determine the best technique to get even applications of the aquaplas onto the cone, so a weight difference divided by the measurement of the speaker cone area where applied = wt/unit area.

    once you get the proper spray head and amount needed, then you can test applications onto fiberboard etc, until your technique is right and you're able to duplicate the amount JBL applies.

    Heavy paste??

    so when it dries it will get rock hard or somewhat soft?can it be mixed to stay soft? I picked up a strange set up afew weeks ago.A ALTEC horn mounted to a JBL driver .the horn is covered with some type of coating,white/grey in color,looks like ribs on a cone of a Le14a,and very sticky.the inside of the cabinet that housed the horns was also covered with this stuff but much harder, looked like it had dried out. I just finished cleaning them up(drivers) and will post pictures.Im wondering if this is the same stuff or ??.I never saw a set up that mated a Altec 811 horn?/le 75-075-Klipsch shorthorn crossover-1 Stephens 103lx and 1-JBL le15.I guess it was a real home brew setup.

    I wish I had taken before and after pictures,after a good cleaning they came out pretty good from what they looked like.

    I know this is an old thread, but I am very curious!

    Will this coating improve the sound of 052Ti tweeters? We will have weight gain, and it will lower the output at higher frequencies. Is this coating worth this sacrifice?
    What improvemnts in the sound should I expect?

    Thanks

    According to G.T., it takes the "zing" out of the titanium. My own personal experience is that he is correct.

    However... I have run across people who prefer the "zing", so... it would appear to be a personal choice.

    I believe all the titanium domes in the LSR Series are aquaplased.

    Cool New Foam?

    You know that the 052 diaphragm has been designed to be easily replaced? New ones come with a new piece of foam that fits in the pole piece under the dome. It would be worthwhile checking that foam to see if it's still providing the damping to the Ti dome that it's supposed to. Probably it's shrunk back or become gummy by now.

    Replacing that would be the first thing I would try.

    I have DIY'd using JBL L100T drivers (later replaced the 035Ti with 052Ti). The speaker sounds very good. The only minor issue seems to be that the tweeter over-shoots! The sounds of cymbals and sometimes guitar solos, for instance, get a little bit too sharp.

    Personally I have auditioned a lot of speakers in recent years, I haven't heard a loudspeaker that does sound as good as them within reasonable price-range. Only if I could improve the system and solve this issue, I believe I am done for now. I have spoken with my speaker pro, and he confirmed that coating the back of the dome will improve and stiffen the dome. I will give it a try.

    So from what I understand if added power is used
    Re coats can be used, since re coats add weight
