    David,
    Yes, I already have a wire soldered between the PCB tweeter + terminal and the + terminal of the tweeter. This is a wire I soldered per the Madisound instructions. Although I'm certain I understand your explanation, I don't see the need to desolder at either end of this wire. It seems all I need to do is cut the existing wire in the middle, strip the two new ends bare, crimp the alligator clips to these ends, and attach a resistor between the alligator clips. This is how I plan to proceed unless I'm advised there's something wrong with doing it this way. I expect to complete this mod and add the acousta-stuff later tonight. I will report my findings later this weekend. Thanks for all your help.

    How about an L-Pad or whatever that variable resistor is called? Is there such a thing that you can wire between the PCB and the tweeter and then mount through the cabinet? My old Verit Heritage speakers have this on the front under the tweeter. I don't know what the Ohm range is, but maybe I could use this instead of swapping different resistors in and out.
