 I'm with you. My version of nick n's MemFoam Mod sounds good, to me. I don't hear Boom, sizzzzle, or distortion, FWIW. We all have different "ears and gears," though, so there is no "Right" or "Wrong."

 I tried a 10x10x3 mm square of camera repair open cell foam over the ports. Pivoting the the cups in the vertical plane caused the edge of the foam near the bottom of the driver to "flap" upwards. This essentially opened the port, negating the desired effect of a partially open, "tuned" bass port. I placed double sided tape under the bottom edge of the foam and it stayed put with cup pivoting.
The Q701 Bass Port is actually flared similar to the B&W Nautilus Bass Port. The flare diameter is ~ 2.5 mm and the "tube" is ~ 2 mm. The stock self-adhesive disk covering the Q701 Bass Ports looks impermeable to me and the glue is very strong. I tried to modify the tube effect with thin craft felt, 3mm open cell foam, and punching various hole sizes in double-sided tape vs silicone furniture bumpers. The felt and open cell foam had no effect, functioning pretty much like...
