Large-basis O(g) static cavity wavefunctions, containing bremsstrahlung and quark-sea states, previously fitted to the light quark meson sector, are applied to the ground-state meson spectrum in general. The only parameters of the model in the heavy quark sector are the quark masses me and mb which we fit to D and B states. Predictions for the meson mass spectrum are given and are found to be a significant improvement over the predictions of the original. MIT model.
