My front left and right speakers are inside my wooden TV cabinet. It has two enclosed spaces for the speakers with speaker grill on the front, particle board with holes drilled for ventilation in the back, and solid wood on the four sides. There seems to be some unwanted reverberation inside the cabinet. I’m considering putting some acoustic foam insulation inside the cabinet to reduce the reverberations. My speakers are rear-ported bookshelves. What would be the best way to reduce the reverberation?

Taking them out of the cabinet is the best solution. Rear ported speakers are less than ideal inside any enclosure or backed up against a wall. A sealed speaker would be better but that isn't ideal either. Speakers need space around them to breathe. All you'll do with foam or whatever you place in there with the speakers is muffle the already poor bass response that manages to get around the space between the cabinet and speakers.
