It just shows that “sounds great” and “technically correct” are not necessarily tightly related.

Barry also wants you to close off all of the ports in your speakers, essentially changing the design. I’m not doing that.

Good point that ‘sounds great’ and ‘technically correct’ not necessarily being the same thing.

On the last point, I have in fact, closed the ports on my Strads as I use the F113v2 below 90 HZ and don’t need another wave front below that frequency to smear the timing. His reasoning on that makes a lot of sense & sounds great! Go figure.
