I was able to get very opaque transparencies with the following settings:

Printing out of Illustrator in the Illustrator Print menu:

Color Handling- Let illustrator determine
Printer Profile- Adobe RGB (1998)
Rendering Intent- Relatie Colorimetric

Raster/Vertor Balance 100 to Vector side
Line Art and Text resolution- 1600 ppi
Gradient and Mesh Resolution- 300
Uncheck all the Convert boxes

In the Epson print menu:

Media type- Premium Presentation Paper Matte
Print Quality- Best Quality
Don't check greyscale

Color Options Manual Settings, Mode- Adobe RGB
Gamma- 2.2
Saturation- 25
Cyan- 25
Maganta- 25
Yellow- 25

Color Matching- Epson Color Controls

The latest test I did that produced great results was from an RGB artboard in illustrator with black set to c- 75, m- 68, y-67, k-90.
I'm going to try these settings as soon as i get up and running in about a week.
