    How to (part 1) : Access to the Hole in front of the HD800 driver and positionning of the mod

    WARNING: Operations listed above are simple, easy to do but it stil induces some risk for the driver and will void any remaining warranty. Consider you're warned and you're doing this under your own responsability.


    WARN: Check that alternative method : http://www.superbestaudiofriends.or...ove-the-mesh-shield-screen-of-the-hd800.1155/ before to choose the one below .


    .

    Just watch it and read instructions below. :)



    1. Remove dust covers and pads to have enough room to work safely on the mesh behind the driver.

    2. Push on the mesh with your finger until to create a hole and see the screen start to peel off a bit :

    [​IMG]
    You can see a first attempt of resonator that wasn't a success.... Ahum...

    2. With the nail , just scrape a bit the edge of the screen in order to be able to grab it with two nails/fingers. the material is solid. no worry.

    [​IMG]

    3. Once grabbed, pull off the screen. It's quite hard but don't hesitate to pull hard. it won't rip. it's glued with the same material with which samples of cream/perfumes are glued in magazines. So it's easy to put it back after the mod. The glue still will stay stuck on the web & the metallic grill :

    4. Grab the SD resonator and push it in the hole therefore accessible. Make sure the paper disc is at the bottom. The fit is tight so you'll probably need to squish a bit the resonator in the hole. Then, You have to pull a bit the top of the resonator in order the creatology ring sits flush to the top of the hole. The paper circle will stay at the bottom and the felt will expand enough hence a maximal size for the inner cavity and an optimal performance .

    I personaly used a 3,5mm jack through the little hole on top. I pushed the paper ring at the bottom and then I pulled gently the creatology ring. with such a rounded and unoffensive tool, there's almost no risk to damage anything.

    Here's the pic of a perfectly fitted SD resonator :

    Job Done !

    How to properly make a SuperDupont Resonator:

    Felt + creatology + thick paper/bristol. Outer diameter 14mm , depth 7mm (5mm felt + 2mm creato+ paper ) . inner diameter of the felt : 10mm , inner diameter of the creatology foam ring : 6mm

    IMG_2028.JPG

    How-to :

    The good tool : twinable punches !

    IMG_1681.jpg


    - Choose the 14mm and 6mm punches and mount it on the tool and then you have the tool to cut the creatology foam with good outer and inner diameters :

    IMG_1685.jpg IMG_1687.jpg IMG_1688.jpg IMG_1687.jpg IMG_1689.jpg

    - Choose the 14mm and 10mm and cut the Felt ( it's an self adhesive one in my exemple). For the felt , it's easier to use a hammer.

    IMG_1690.jpg IMG_1691.jpg IMG_1692.jpg IMG_1693.jpg


    - Let the 14mm on the tool and cut the circle of paper/circle.

    Now, you have all parts of the resonator. :)

    - If you're using self adhesive felt. Just stick properly the creatology ring on top :

    IMG_2031.JPG IMG_1694.jpg

    If not , use proper ( for fabrics ;) ) glue for those materials :


    Colle.JPG IMG_2037.JPG

    - Now you can put some more glue on the other side of the felt and put the paper/bristol circle:

    IMG_2038.JPG

    Let it dry a few minutes and fit it in the hole of you HD800 :

    - Be sure the bottom paper circle is fully at the bottom
    - Pull off a bit the top to put the creatology ring flush to the top of the hole.

    Then the cavity in the resonator is big enough for better results.

    You can put back the Screen and the dust cover and Enjoy your HD800 SD modded.

    @sorrodje you forgot me? :( haha can you put me on the list too?

    Also when the SBAF absorber material arrives, I'll be shipping you some so you can test the absorber as well. Probably do both my own cutout and the SBAF official one so you can play around with both.
