General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

RE: Wonder why

You can make the Tivoli even better if you want to.

First, visit your favorite fishing pole building supply store. Buy three of these, or something like them:

These are the new "feet" for your radio. Better than standing the radio on its side, I found.

Then, visit your favorite craft supply store. Buy one of these, or something like it. Color doesn't matter, at least as far as I can tell:

Stuff the pompom into the port on the underside of the radio. This will slightly dampen the bass response so that it isn't so bloated. Adjust to taste.

(Of course, eBay has zillions of both of these for sale.)

That's it! This improved an already great sound to something better. At least for me. YMMV and all that jazz, of course. But, for the price I don't feel like you'll hate me forever if you don't like it.
