I have a pair of Kef Calindas and have a couple questions , I hope someone can satisfy. The inside of the cabinets are lined with foam rubber abt. 1 1/4 in thick. Is that correct for these? Wouldn't the foam lining deter bass as it would lessen the volume of air needed to push the passive radiators? Your help is appreciated. Keith

Everything in a Kef speaker is there for a purpose Wink The foam damps standing waves inside the cabinet and reduces main resonance which can give an unpleasant "one note bass" type of thump with no relevance to the music. If anything it flattens the bass and the amount is effectively "tuned" to each enclosure and overall design.
