    These speakers at the bottom end on the back there is a circular aperture......Should these be closed with the supplied plastic taps?
    Why they do not come closed with the supplied plastic taps from factory?
    Thanks

    I don't own, nor have ever seen the rear of these speakers, but I assume it's the bass reflex port which you could plug or not depending on taste and speaker location.

    Are the speakers heavy? My AE Aego speakers were mass loaded with kiln dried sand to keep them firmly fixed to the floor at high volumes. The bung was placed on afterwards. Perhaps your speakers have the same functionality?

    When I read the flippiin manual, it mentioned not to close the bungs over unless you were happy- they are designed to stay on after fixing!

    I still think it's a space for filling with sand. :D


    What do the instructions say?
