Hi, just had something I wanted to share and hopefully get some help with.
My spacebar sounds quieter on one side than the other when pressed. It’s like the right side isn’t bottoming out as loud or something and I would like if both sides sounded like the left or at least sounded uniform.
I made sure the stabilizer wires were balanced and more than enough lube was applied to the stabilizers when I built the keyboard.
Keyboard is Freebird TKL
Stabilizers are TX Stabs R3
Switches are SP Star Meteor White
Attached is a video to hopefully illustrate what I mean.
Use a small square of telfon tape or other thin plastic (like saran wrap) on the stabilizer stems. When you install the space bar, try to only push down on the center where the switch is. Then retry the sound test.
Other than that, is there foam between the plate and PCB? Is it possible there is sound dampening on the right side but not the left?
As for the foam, there is none between the plate and pcb. There is only a silicone dampener between the pcb and bottom case. However, this issue with the spacebar persists even without the dampener so I doubt that is the cause.
