    Hi,

    I have some speakers that I'd like to plug (the ports) to help increase tighter bass. I can't seem to locate where to order some, I have 3" ports on my main speakers and 1" on my surrounds.

    Here is an example of what i'm looking for:

    A rolled up sock works just as well.

    Plugging your ports will also likely result in a slight loss of sensitivity.

    I haven't been able to find any of these either, but recently I noticed that some new solid core wood doors we are buying for my office came with a foam plug in the hole for the door knob. Luckily we still had two doors that were not installed yet so the contractor hadn't thrown the (valuable to me) plugs away yet. It's just regular foam that you can buy many places but I have no way to cut foam into perfect circles like you (and I) want them.

    Try Nerf brand port plugs. They look like little footballs. [​IMG]

    Hi Mike

    As mentioned, socks, kids nerf balls/toys, etc, can be used.

    For a much more pro look, and getting I'm sure s exactly what you want, you might try this place.

    Size, lenght, and even density can be selected.

    Take a look and give them a call if you if you need more information.

    Check'em out ***Here***

    I think they have what you really want..

    Cheers
