    Am currently enjoying recently purchased Tannoy MX3's but would like to mass load them as I've been told they have a chamber for this purpose. Problem is there are no instructions, how do I go about getting access to this 'chamber', it doesn't appear obvious...or am I just being blind.

    Also, what's the best material to load them with? Sand?

    Replies appreciated

    There should be summit in the speakers manual to tell you where to load them.

    I would recommend using either kiln dried sand, (cos damp sand would screw them up), or special lead shot stuff that is made for mass laoding since it's soooooo dense, like me playing Connect4. We have some of this stuff as work and it weighs a ton, summit around 40kg, for a box no bigger no bigger than bookshelf speaker, ie. Kef Cresta 1.

    If like me, you can't get hold of either of the above. Use normal sharp sand, but put it in strong plastic bags.
