Some argue that the delay isnít enough to be audible, but I think it usually is. BUT, you get more output with a vent, and at a given SPL you need less excursion - so at higher SPL that can reduce distortion.

No free lunch and all that.
Fully understand and agree. I think the biggest aspect of my current setup of the Cap is the rest of the system. The current rolloff above 80hz is very weird and is influencing how I'm hearing the Cap. I want to do some more testing to see if it is due to the Sonos, the room, or the speakers. I think my first move is going to be to test with two of my JTR 228HT's, then if that is still lacking with the Sonos I'll move to a Pioneer receiver I have laying around.

I'd find it weird to have it be the room that is the issue. I did have a Sonos Playbar in there at one point and it sounded much better there than in the bedroom. The Playbar picked up a surprising amount of decent bass due to having an electronic cubbie behind it that sort of acted like a ported box.
