Hi, I don't want to speak for Dr Hsu, but it looks to me like you are using the phrase 'acoustic suspension' incorrectly. Acoustic suspension is a very specific type of design which has a relatively loose woofer that uses back spring from the internal pressure in a sealed cabinet instead of a stiff spider. What you are asking about is simply using the HC1 in a sealed configuration by plugging its ports. If you plug the ports, you will eliminate a chunk of the low end output from the speakers. Outside of reducing the bass extension, I don't think it will really hurt anything, but I don't think it will help anything either. It will not destroy the speakers to try it, so if you are really curious about it, just plug them and see how they sound.
