    Don't need to re-start that one but I tried Jay Mitchell's dispersion technique using 3/4" foam rather than a beam blocking device. One of my tweeds has a 2X12 cab - love the tone, but maybe just a little harsh in the upper range in a small space (like a home studio). I was about to swap one of the speakers for an Alnico to calm a little of the highs, but hadn't done it yet since I have another cab with Alnico's in it. So...
    I bought two 12" open cell foam squares from Grainger Supply, cut them into 12" circles, with ~3" hole in the center.
    Less than $10.00 and 15 minutes later, it resulted in the perfect solution (for me anyway, YMMV).
    So I'd like to add Jay's name to the list of knowledgeable folks to whom I owe a debt of thanks for sharing their expertise without reservation.
    Thanks to Jay Mitchell for an elegantly simple solution to a complex problem.
