i think the best thing to do is get some chicken wire and just blocked the port with it, use a staple gun to staple the mesh or glue i guess would work. but i would bother using polyfill in a ported box its a pain in the ***

That hole in the back of the sub is the pole vent. It makes no acoustikal difference being open. It's necessary that you keep that open and clear at all times. If not, the power handling of the sub goes down by at least half, probably more.

I know that im saying i was trying to keep the loose poly-fil from going in that hole so what i did was use a cleaner more compact version of poly-fil that comes in a roll and made a crater in the loose poly-fil with it. i can post pics later if you want.

pole vent you mean....just put it away from the sub like on the sides of the box n ****, its not gonna move around in a sealed box like it would in a ported

I never had any problems with it getting into a pole vent before, but I guess worse to worse, some uber-thin cloth chickenwire-style mesh attached to the back of the motor with nothing more than duct tape would do the trick...

Get a more matted polyfill from Hobby Lobby, the kind that is not so fluffy and loose. Get the kind used in quilting and they use 3M spray adhesive to keep it in place.
