    with i have the grill off on my 2x8 cab it sounds awesome.. when i put it back on i get vibrations from it etc..


    any ways to remedy this?

    for a 2x8 cab this puppy pushes alot of air
     
  2. maybe its not on tight enough?

    Is it coming from the grill itself or closer to the screws? rubber washers may help if its the screws

    I once used weather stripping to isolate a vibrating grill on a Yorkville cabinet. It worked fine.

    Rubber grommets both between the grille and cab and the screw head and grille. You might need slightly longer screws to accomodate the thickness of the grommets.

    i got those rubber things on already

    i can't believe how much air pumps outta this thing.

    it seems to making most vibes where the port holes are..

    i took the grill of for now...
    its the same grill material as say, a accugroove cab. just standard grill stuff

    EA had an upgrade awhile back on their CXLs. It was a few of those rubber washers, PLUS some weather stripping along where the grill and the cab would touch.


    I'd say try the stripping like 62bass did.

    yep. the insulation was actually inbetween the grill, and the wooden edge.
