I've had the 1400's for about 2 months now from new and they probably have about 150-200 hours in total on them.
Apart from being simply amazing, even my wife says they also look fantastic !
I'm very happy with them, but have a query already . Now, this may well be a factor of them not having enough hours on them yet, but I thought I'd ask anyway.
Having the LE14 14" going up to 750 seems to be giving me a slight "hollowness" and lack of bite at certain frequencies - namely notes from double bass, bass guitar or lower male vocals such as Lennard Cohen etc.
I had a quick peek inside and saw there's no damping directly behind the driver ?
Is this something that would be worth trying ? I know it works well on other makes and models. I'm not talking masses of material, more like a couple of layers of Dacron, or similar sealed across the rear of the LE1400.
A couple of friends who have built speakers seconded this idea, not that that necessarily means a thing of course
All I'd be trying to do is attenuate the particular frequency in question, nothing else.
Of course, I could be barking up the wrong tree completely .... and it wouldn't be the first time either, I can assure you !
