    I've built a cabinet to house my B&W DM 601's and I need some help with regard to what material I should surround them with inside the cabinet to stop them sounding "boxy". Also should I use the supplied foam plug in the rear port ?

    Those 601's (like most speakers) sound their best with some free space around them, especially as they are rear-ported. Putting speakers in a cabinet will increase the "boxy" sound you refer to and make the bass sound slow and over-full. Using the foam bungs will improve things a bit, but unfortunately putting them into a cabinet is a backwards step soundwise. Sorry. :(
