Hi Jim,
Sorry but couldn't help laughing; same thing happened to me!!!
My speakers in my two channel system have four ports at the back of them. Within days of getting them my five year old put two of them in there (a Jeff Gordon and a Mark Martin we are guessing). At this point they are still in there as I'd have to remove the bottom plinth of the speaker and a whopping great crossover board which I'm relectant to fool with.
No loss on the Jeff Gordon but I'll miss the Mark Martin

I've always wanted to revive a dead thread. Now I can tell you what I found in my M60's today. I know what your thinking, damn he's a good procrastinator (Dec 10 for goodness sakes!!!). I forgot what Alan said about taking the lower woofer off, so I started up high. I figure the upper port would mean I could stay in the upper region of the M60. I was wrong. I didn't lay them on their side either. Using those spikes takes forever to get the toe in correct. They ARE some heavy beasts!! Using the upper port in the back was the only way the little guy could get something inside the speaker successfully. The lower port has the white fill material stuff blocking it. I tried the midrange first. Damn me anyway, it's in located in a MDF cavern. I finally got to the first woofer, not the bottom one (which would have been smart, perhaps easier), and carefully removed the leads. I could reach all the way to the bottom up to my elbow. I'll make a long story longer. He had a 48 car and 24 car in the left speaker with two plastic golf balls. He had a 17 car in the right main. All the items were in the bottom of the M60's. If you're wondering, I did remember to re-hook the leads before I re-threaded the bolts. So Alan, what can I cover the ports up with on the backside that won't affect the accoustics? I really don't want to do this type of surgery on a regular basis. Also, what's the purpose of the white fill stuff? Why is the midrange in an enclosure and not the woofs? Now all together...LAUGH!! I deserve it.

no laughs, just a very wide grin, perhaps he's hinting that what he really would like is a toy box.

Sure they're ported...big flip top type port openings in the front that obviously aren't as mischevious as my M60 ports. Now if Alan would answer my ?'s, I'll be set.

I found a toothbrush, seveal pens, a can of fish food, a ball, some crust of of bread, and some plastic trash in my SVS sub, apparently someone thinks it is a garbage can...I had to fish it out with one of those mechanical arms you can grab stuff with. I decided to put the sub back the way it was so no one can drop stuff down the ports again. I had it standing on end so it would take less floor spacewith the ports and controls on the top. Never again...

I think putting audiophile fairy dust in the ports of your speakers makes them sound better.

Post it on AVS forums.
