    Just bought some Kef Q7's, can someone tell me what the Port Bungs are for?

    Thanks

    They're supposed to be for "tuning" the port for smoothest bass response. I have them with my Mission speakers too, but they sound OK without the bungs, so I've never bothered with them.

    As Nick's already stated, plus, they're very usefull if you have to put the speakers close to walls. Helps to reduce the 'Boom'.

    As already mentioned above but the Q range is designed to be near walls hence being front ported. I have Q4's and can't tell the difference when the bungs are in or out.

    Thanks all. I can't tell the difference, but wanted to check in case I was missing something.

    Cheers :smashin:

    The port should allow for deeper bass but dependant on location etc can lead to some booming, the bung should slightly reduce the bass extension but give a 'tighter' bass. I would say unless you have a bass problem, it is a matter of personal preference. These things are much easier to hear with music than films
