This explains, why I haven't got bungs with my boxes. As I'm Exakting my AV5140's now the question is: Are there still bungs for the buck?

Or do us poor AV5140/Espek owners need to fall back to socks, which undoubtedly will result in a long thread on the right material mix (Why 80% cotton, 20% polyamide sound better in tunedem ...) and replace bungs by you name it tweaks ... Tongue

Cheers, CW

Paul has just finished wrapping my couch in foil because it was pressing up against my K600 cables to the AV5140s; he suggested we test a pair of socks tonight: will report back on the results.

Glad to report that socks (and likely bungs) do nothing but close down the sound stage, inhibiting the musicality: no toe tapping with socks Big Grin

RE: Espek / AV5140 Tweak for Exakt
My dealer delivered & set-up my new Akurate Exaktbox 6 today to my home, and even had some bungs with him. We tried the AV5140s (Espek tweeters) with, and without the bungs in my KRDSM, AEBox6, C6100 combo. The ananimous verdict: It sounds better without the bungs!
So I can leave my socks on ;-)
