This is a gross generalization, and is not accurate at all, there are several designs in speakers, and the sealed ones work as well as ported, same as in headphones, and I could tell you more, you will find more muffed bass in the open back headphones that in the closed ones, but they all have advantages and flaws...That implies that you can get good results either way...the muffled bass you hear in speakers is due to the bad drivers used, or a bad design, and not the type of enclosure used

It is an easy way of finding out if the hole size matters, just remove the plug, leave it open and give it a try with no port, how does it sound???

Yes, it is indeed intended as an gross generalization, and you are right about the various design on speaker technology. However, given most of the speakers you will find in a household electronics are using bass reflex design, I don't think it is that far off to suggest the same is used in SA6 Bass+ port. Of course, I am not suggesting it is the only design in speaker design, nor it is the most superior design. In fact, if you look at the wiki link in my post, the listed limitation is almost 5x longer than its advantage. The wiki link also includes another link to various loudspeaker enclosure designs if the OP is interested in learning more.

Did that. The bass is very slightly increased and a bit more airy, but not worth the potential trouble of dirt and dust getting inside.

what about to insert a tube on the port, and open the hole more, to avoid the dirt to go in, I agree with you that the increase in bass if any is not worth the hassle....

Actually I has the idea of cutting a big hole on the back of the Bass= port than put some very light foam inside (with enough plastic surrounding the hole so the foam won't fall out), but the increased bass quantity isn't worth the hassle. Instead, I mod that Bass+ to my own Bassā‰„ port , which I prefer over the original Bass=. It is kind of the mix b/w Bass+ and Bass=. You get the overall sound of Bass=, and a bit more airy and stronger bass response.

Let's do a transmission line headphone. :P

Clies, thank you so much for this thread! Putting a staple through the holes in the bass+ really opened up the sound stage and added more bass. I was ready to sell these even. I actually have to remove them from the for sale forums.
