    after playing around trying to make these speakers sound better(putting on slabs etc),i found that when i took the bottom drivers out the lower part of the speakers has a brace and huge foam pad in,so the bottom part of the speaker was not being used.simple load up with kiln dried sand and seal up the brace.the results are amazing better bass and overall dynamics.new speakers for the cost of sand+decorators filler+gaffer tape.:p

    The bottom half of the speaker may contain air and foam padding,but this forms the cabinet loading for the bass driver.

    By filling it with sand,effectively what you've done is to trade bass extension for tightness,and probably also increased the damping of the cabinet itself.....now this may be exactly what you rerquire,and may work very well in your room,but may not work for all...certainly little harm in trying,and in your case it seems to have worked fine

    the foam was above the bracing effectively sealing the bottom section off,as the spec on the 774 (the next model up) it has twice the volume(internel space) but only slightly larger dimensions.no loss of bottom end ,seems tighter and deeper.
