depends on how you have it in the box, is it neatly stappled or just tossed in there. Just if it is not stappled it could bunch up against the port, i personaly wouldnt use it but i know people that do staple it to the back of the wall and put a mesh around the port so it doesnt blow out

there have been tests done i havea link but it no worky anymore, that it can give up to 40 percent increase in box size if done correctly.

It's not really that funny...from what he said, he basically wants something that farts extremely loud. Not my personal cup of tea, but plenty of people out there that want that...:)

i just thought if i asked i might get a simple answer. thats better than going through the trouble of testing and stuff, but looks like i gotta do that anyways...

there was this pretty good website that showed all the percentage gain from polyfill but the thing is that the box has to be right because sometime if the box doesnt need it, it will decrease the output IIRC. I would just take it out and see for yourself anyways. Who cares, its a L7. Im sure your not concerned about hitting extreme low end anyways.

No it doesnt make sense. Whats funny is that Fatryan didnt pick up that Euginics was being sarcastic.
