An explanation is proposed for the increase in the width of the band of allowed states near threshold found in recent experiments by Cannell, Dominguez-Lerma, and Ahlers on wave-number selection in a Taylor-Couette system. A simple parametrization of the forcing of the motion by the nonuniform gap between the cylinders used to yield the selection produces many features of the data.
