Does anyone have any experience of running in new bass drivers in Kef 107's My recently purchased pair of 107's have had new bass drivers fitted using rubber mounts rather than the old foam ones. Ny inital reation to them is that there is a lack of mid and upper bass. The lowest bass notes are lovely and firm, bass drums are also fine. But mid and upper bass seems to be very light, almost as if the bass rolls off before the mid range drives take over. Could this be due to new new cones needing time to settle in, or could it be the crossovers that need to be look at?

Ideas and advice please!

Hi,

What do you mean by rubber mounts ?

Do the new drivers still have foam surrounds and the force canceling rod ?

Are you using the Kube ?
