    When I mix I'll be jumping around for the first couple of hours playing the track loudly via my KRKs, and once I know the bottom end is rocking, I'll mix with low volume on the Auratones for the rest of the day. If I can make a mix work on the Auratones, I know I'm flying. T. Elmhirst…mixing the top Billboard album...65 weeks on chart. Adele's "21"


    just reading this morning, Avantone ….er...Auratones...etc... a small speaker in a small box.

    There is much to learn from small speakers. Even the $60 Phillips ones I have tell me how my mixes are heard by most.

    Damn glad I got rid of my KRK G28's tho. They were so 'scooped' that nothing was easy to translate.

    Adam A7X was a game changer.

    Hello friend, I recently bought a pair of used M-Audio BX-8 and they came with the speaker dust cap damaged, the seller told that her daughter pushed the caps but with no damage in sound. I donīt know if the sound went bad īcause of that, but talking about the beauty of the monitors, thatīs really ugly with the pushed caps, Iīm very afraid to do some repair, but I want my monitor working 100%, I saw in youtube people doing a vacuum cleaner repair in the dust cover, itīs safe for studio monitor? Someone already did these job?

    I had luck with a hair dryer and some light masking tape and the dented dust cap popped out.
    The hair dryer made it soft and the weak tape allowed a light pull to it ...
    I thought it was less risk than the vacuum cleaner method, with that I would be more careful. But Ive tried it cautiously.

    I believe your's is the safest method

    Ok. Here's one from my 3rd grade science class..

    Get a jar with a round opening - maybe a small jelly or preserves jar.. squeaky clean. Place the jar opening over the concave dome to make sure it completely covers the concave area. Now light a match or small piece of paper, drop it in the jar and place the jar opening over the dome before the flame goes out. If the gap between the jar and dome is small enough, the resulting vacuum should pull the dome out.

    Sounds crazy, right.. Well, at least it won't have the danger of constant high vacuum from a machine.

    I just hope the dome isn't made of guitar pick material.. ever light up a pick?
    Failure - - the path of least persistence
    And, uh, oh - hire a decorator to come in here quick, 'cause... DAMN.

    Roll of paper and suck on it with your mouth. More control and need to be careful.

    Start with the least likely to do damage. Some dust caps come out with a stick finger... Just don't go directly to vacuum...

    Hey man, how did it work out with the dust caps? Inquiring minds want to know.

    I don't have monitors per se, just a pair of old radio shack minimus 7's run by a vintage kenwood receiver. I was ready to buy some JBL 305P mkII before I started toying with the idea of switching from the 10x10 office to my current bedroom (twice size, irregular shaped). In my price range the 305, 306 and 308 are options. I don't know if I should ask here or start a new thread elsewhere.
