Espek / AV5140 Tweak for Exakt
Interesting diagram here for the Espek and AV5140 when going Exakt.

Was this bung an option originally, or is it a new accessory due to some re-design of the speaker dreamed up by Philbo?

No idea re bungs - but I see the klimax exaktbox connections are in descending order as opposed to Akurate - which are ascending. Could prove a costly trap for the eager upgrader?!?

ADs/2 -> Klimax Exaktbox/1 -> Silvers -> 2xKCT/D -> K200 -> Ninka

Bunts were available for suitable use depending on speaker to front wall distance.

Half of what I post on here is not worth reading; but I post it in order that the other half gets posted.

I suspect mine were typical of most by not having them anymore. Lost in someone's loft, just like their boxes.

My Espeks were ex-dem - I bought them eight or nine years back. Had all the boxes and the midrange grills but I don't recall any bungs...

RE: Espek / AV5140 Tweak for Exakt
The bungs were always an optional accessory for the loudspeaker, dependant on use. However, in the re-design of the crossover for Exakt, we left purposely left them in.

Perhaps a pair of socks would fit the bill in this case, or for the more particular members, a Linn tea towel.
