Angry Tivoli Music System --- Way too boomy

Yes I should have known ...

but it was on sale and she wanted it ...

but I can't stand the awful boomy sound it makes

Even with the subwoofer turned right down and in plain stereo mode it sounds just awful. It's 100% OK through headphones though so it's clearly a speaker issue.

I was wondering if anyone might have had a go at tweaking one of these things --- some damping material in the "tubes" or so-called "wave guides" perhaps???

I've tried hooking up my Energy 100s to the headphone output - and they sound OK, but not enough volume (no doubt there'll be a resitor in line with the signal to the h/phone outlet).

try putting a couple of bricks on top of the sub (with say a folded teatowel to protect it.)
