It would sound better with an actual port instead of just a square hole.
I just got it sounding its best yesterday, after creating a simple passive crossover for all the drivers.

In all honesty, It sounds excellent for what it is.

Out of everywhere on overclock I felt this would be the best place to share my story. So I bought a 7950, the Vapor-X Sapphire version which obviously has a custom PCB. However, at the time I bought it I wasn't thinking and in the effort to make things look nice I bought an EK-FC7950 which is designed for a reference PCB... oops. After about an hour and a half of staring, shifting, unscrewing, rescrewing, and talking it over with a friend I finally gave in and decided to leave it alone for a little bit. I sat down at my desk that night and noticed a roll of electrical tape. I've used so much electrical tape in my system whether it be for cable management or holding a fan down because I lost a screw. I figured why not try it with the back plate? So, after a little tape and some crafty tape management I was able to secure the plate down well enough to survive some standard GPU handling as well as a little more (I may have shook it a little just to make sure tongue.gif). Now I have a nice and clean looking system and didn't waste any money biggrin.gif

Cheers everyone!
