Thanks for your reply. Did you make measurements with the new panels using Audyssey? What were the results? Mine are both set at +12db when conducting calibrarion whereas my other speakers are set at-2 + 0db. And Audyssey no matter the connection I make detects a phase problem, My Requests are from 1997. Thank youI took my panels to Russ and left them with him. He spent time looking them over and then called me. He let me know that there was a good chance that taking the panels apart would damage the film inside. Apparently on my panels they used a lot of the double sided tape to hold things together. Some panels aren't as bad. I got the impression that the older the panels, the less tape was used. He's done many panels and felt like mine were going to be especially difficult to do. He doesn't apply new film.
So I just had him mail the old panels back to me. I bought new panels from Martin Logan instead.
