I have just brought the most gorgeous pair of Rogers Export Monitors from a fellow PFM'er, cheers Rick, they are in absolutely immaculate condition and finished in amazing Rosewood veneer.

I have them stood on open frame trolly stands with spikes, these are plunged deep into my carpet and onto a solid concrete floor, room size 21' x 16', powered by a NAP250 fitted NCC200 boards and NAC32.5, driven by my AAA5.

I thought these speakers should be idealy suited to my room size, they are stood well clear of any boundary walls to the tune of at least 3' side and back and the bass is just so bloody boomy, am I missing something here, is there a known bass bloom from these speakers, or is this just what reflex enclosures do, loads of wet, farty, one note bass with no articulate timing to the bass lines, or am I expecting too much from a late 70's speaker design, does anyone know of any mods for these classic speakers to tame this problem or should I just stuff the port to dampen it with foam or resistive load it with drinking straws ? any advice or help from anyone greatly appreciated
