      Re: what filtered faceplate

      There are a few different filtered faceplates available. If you do not have any extensions, then it does not really matter IMHO which filtered faceplate you go for.

      If you have any hard wired extensions which make use of the ring-wire, then it can make a difference to get the right one.

      Take a look through this article, it is still current:

      It is a bit overpriced and is out of stock anyway. Get one of these, you will not find one with better quality.

      The discount isn't running presently as we lowered all prices. The one you linked to looks like the AT one-now discontinued. If you order from us by 4.30 it will ship today 1st class recorded, you should have it tomorrow TBH......
