Ha! looks like the subject is pretty well covered by now. Thanks Stuart for the post.

It's actually not a complicated subject at all, just one that is misunderstood and often surrounded by pseudo-science from manufacturers selling you snake-oil "decoupling speaker interfaces". Which creates most of the confusion to start with.

The science is over a 150 years old.

The only issue you need to solve with speaker decoupling is the static load vs dynamic load (=rocking modes).

I'm also prone to recommending spending your money on more important things first, like proper LF treatment that will bring a much higher ROI. Speaker decoupling is one of those aspects of a design you zoom into when all the rest is taken care of and solid.
