    John-
    This was discussed a bit ago here.
    TV had mentioned work on a plug kit, and perhaps a grill upgrade for those of us with the older screw-down grill. Cool stuff. I've been patiently waiting--I know those guys are busy. [​IMG]

    John,

    We'll get the port plug order info up in just a few days now. When you see the link you will see another reason we've been so busy. BTW, for you CS-Ultra early adopters the plug will be free of charge. We'll even ship it out on our nickle.

    The grill upgrade will take just a bit longer, and while it won't be free it'll be very low cost. Won't hardly be worth while for old CS/PC customers but for anyone with a mind to pop the grill for the port plug now and again it'll do wonders for your sanity (the old grill damping screws were a PITA to put back in).

    Thanks for your patience, soon we'll make it up to you with a free plug.

    Ron

    Thx Ron.

    So the foam plugs are free and the new end-caps will cost us (a little bit of change), correct???

    Sounds fine to me, I guess I'll wait to install the plugs after I get the new end caps, so I can switch back and forth quickly and easily to see which one I prefer.

    Hopefully the ETA on the new end caps is soon.

    Take care,

    -- John

    John,

    Not new end-caps, a new grill system. Big difference.

    It just will make removing and replacing the grill a 15 second operation instead of a 15 minute operation.

    Watch our News page for release of the port plugs for you Ultra customers of long ago.

    Ron

    Raife, using a port plug lowers the tuning frequency of the Sub, so it can reach lower notes before it starts to roll-off the lows.
