Did you try Energy directly? I was able to get some plugs for an RC-LCR a few years back. Don't know if there's anyone left there anymore though

You can always make your own. Just stuff a sock in there or whatever. Port plugs are pretty low tech.

Didn't think to ask them. Maybe they have some old stuff laying around. I've read nerf balls work, still I wonder if they are using a medium density foam that lets a specific amount of air through.

Go to a craft store, get a sheet of soft foam. Roll it up. Electrical tape. Boom, port plugs.

I don't know if I really need them for the 50s they are at least 12" and probably more like 18" away from the wall. I have plugs for my surrounds which are closer to the wall and near corners.

I only have about 10" behind my center though.
I don't know if the foam plugs are the same as the ones on the RC-LCR, but I have the remaining plugs from a RC-70 set I've sold a while ago... They are available , just shoot me a pm. Cover the shipping fees from Canada and they are yours.

Polk Audio LSIM703, Polk Audio LSIM704c, Polk Audio RTI-A1 surrounds
Dual Reaction-Audio BPS212 turbo subwoofers
Marantz AV8801 preamp, Rotel RMB-1095 power amp
Pioneer Elite n50 network player
Marantz CD6004 cd player, Marantz UD5007 Blu ray player, Modded Rega RP1 turntable
Panasonic Tcl55dt60 led tv,Playstation 3 and a lot of old consoles

Unless you are running the speakers full range, would port plugs even be necessary or truly effective with a typical subwoofer and 80hz speaker crossover? The only time I found port plugs needed was when I literally had RC-10s mounted on a shelf in an entertainment center... and it indeed took care of the annoying vibration that was occurring without the plugs..

I think it's really an "it depends" situation. When I had RC-10's I crossed them over at 80Hz, but the port was less than a foot from the wall behind them and I still preferred them with the ports plugged. IMO it helped make them sound a little less "chesty" and softened the mid-bass hump that is characteristic of the speakers. But it certainly didn't sound bad with them unplugged.
