Yes it is. I was trialling different port lengths but the hole in the cabinet is a little bit tight and I haven't had time to lay the speakers flat to enable me push them flush.

Edit: My son has been in the lounge today and I didn't want to bring his attention to the holes. I have a feeling they may become a garage to park his toy cars

It might be a shame to spoil the aesthetics by covering the port opening with a small metal mesh speaker grille, but could be better than the alternative.

You could always wrap the port in some grill cloth before shoving it in.

I thought about that, but I'll see how we go.

I really do need to fit some grills to drivers, I'm going to be on tender hooks at work tomorrow

FYI the first album to be played with these speakers was Athena, a good recommendation!

Whenever the name Athena is mentioned my mind wanders back to the classic Athena poster of the girl playing tennis.
Can't think why
