Since joining this great site, I've been searching/reading/researching all of the info on here I could find on modifying the ports for better bass response in my mint condition oiled oak Chorus 1's. I purchased the Chorus 1's to replace my black La Scalas that were really too big for my listening room & looked like 80's concert speakers. I know some here prefer the Chorus ll, for the mid horn & bass, but for my "music room" I wanted a front firing speaker w/o a rear passive. (so I chose Chorus 1's on purpose) Since the previous owner had already upgraded them with titanium tweeter diaphragms & re-capped the crossovers using Bob Crites stuff, I figured that if I tweaked the low bass response a little, these would be a pair of speakers I would keep forever (& also improve the WAF of my listening room) I got finished this past weekend & figured it was my turn to "pay it forward" & share the results in a build thread so others can easily duplicate the project if so desired (including pix/part #'s/relevant info) I also decided since I was "going in" the cabinets, I might as well try some of Morey James bracing ideas I read up on too. To make the post modification info more objective (hopefully) & less of my "opinion" I purchased a CD online that had digital test tones for all of the mid & low bass frequencies. I tested them pre & post mods & was quite happy with the results (testing info coming up after a few pix 😎) Dave
Been reading/learning alot, now my 1st post is a speaker mod question 😃 I have a pair of mint Oak Chorus 1's with Crites crossovers & titanium diaphragms. Chorus 1's have 2 front ports & no rear passive. I've seen an older thread online where someone put in 7" long tubes where the two factory "ports" (really just 2 holes thru the mdf) are to increase/lower the bass freq response. Anyone here ever done that? If so, what fit? I ordered a 4" port from speaker express, but the 4" is the tube Internal diameter, not outer, so it didn't fit...Also went by my local carpet dealer, same problem, outer diameter is too big. & btw I don't want to enlarge/recut the factory holes. Ideas?
