    Speakers in question are B&W 602 s2's, any actual advantage of filling the ports? I know bass output will be signficently reduced but can you actually gain accuracy because of the extra back pressure?

    Thanks

    I doubt it. Some equate less bass with greater accuracy, but stuffing the port will actually create less back pressure, and less damping, on the woofer around the present tuning frequency.
