    Oh yeah these babys are going to be on everyones GAS list. And yes I do actually believe that they could work and have used previous versions of simular products.

    Altering the cone structure pretty much has to have some effect on cone cry...and other aspects of cone performance.
    I don't think sticking them on the windows, as decorative as that may be, is the cure, though.

    I read through that whole website and I'm still not sure whether it is a joke or not.

    Following the description... Seems I just apply a few stick-on dots to my window, and it gives me everlasting tonal bliss, no matter where I go with my amp.

    It is so simple: why didn't I think of that?? :huh

    Thanks guys I needed a good laugh and I knew you would come through, I figured that if gold pins were controversial, tuning dots should certainly get a response. High end audio is a very strange place for the uninitiated.

    Wow. Some people must just make too much money. Wow. Wow.

    Those feet in particular make me scratch my head. I mean, I know feet matter, and for high end audio gear, good feet can cost some cash, but... well, I'm trying to justify how I can spend $45 on feet for a speaker cab, and I can't even do that. Just, wow.

    Counseling and medication would be a start maybe a 12 step program as well.
    Have you had an open dialog with the cone to get to the root of why it's crying in the first place? I would start there first.

    Awesome. I just ordered up a $1,000 worth of dots. They didnt mention which color dot sounds better though?

    Either way, my rig is going to sound a lot better now.

    That depends. Warmer tone can be had by using the red dots. Brighter, the blue to green dots. Weren't you paying attention in high school physics? :hide2

    It might be worth it if it saves me from having to buy the $2995 power cable.
