Hey guys. i'm building a sealed box. my question is how do you guys seal your insides. do you use jsut the glue or sealant? also and i hope i dont get flamed for this question. on the inside fo teh box, is it worth it to put that cotton or what ever it is to help sound. seen it on crutchfield for example, or do you use egg crate foam, OR...lol do you leave it empty ?

thanks guys.

I leave my boxes empty- but fiberfill helps. YOu can get it at wal-mart in t fabric section.

If you make accurate cuts, you shoud not need to seal the inside of the box.

But, if you are like me, liquid nails or silicone caulk works. For small imperfections,Wood glue fits the bill.

Yah, all it takes is a nudge.

I would stay away from eggcrate foam. It seems to me that it just takes upspace inside the box since those little cells hold air *kina*. It does a helluva job for killing resonance though.

I just use silicone to seal the inside of my boxes and I have never used polyfill before. :)

Yes- definitely. Polyfill doens't even make that much of a difference... To me.

Wal Mart (well, Michaels for me, lol,I shop at faggy craft stores) for the win!
