    Push the PR in and hold. The mid-drivers should slowly recede after a few seconds. They will fully reseat after you let the pressure off the PR.

    Tigthen the screws.

    Are there any cracks in the cabinets (ie. the seams)? If so, they need to be sealed.

    A favorite fix around here is; using Moretite as a gasket instead of the foam around the drivers.

    If you tighten the screws, just be careful not to over tighten. Otherwise, you may strip the holes. There are fixes for that too.

    Unless your foam gaskets are damaged, I do not think Mortite is needed and even then there are other choices.

    I pushed the PR in and the drivers popped out and returned to a relaxed position as soon as I took my hand away, if the cabinet is sealing they should stay out a few seconds, correct?

    The cabinets are in excellent condition. Do you think it's the foam gaskets around the drivers?
