alright i built my custom box about a year ago, tricked with LED's and windows so u can look inside, not bad for a first box ever. only problem is i calculated the square footage wrong.

I know for a fact for a ported box, i should have less cubic feet of air inside the box.

My question is, what can i put inside the box to bring the cubic footage down? i dont care if it doesnt look good

It would help if you told us how big the box is, the tuning, what sub it is...etc

Any sort of cross bracing and/or laying another "bottom" panel on the bottom piece. Heck, maybe even two if you need to take up more volume.

If he just want's to take up space I wouldn't even go that elaborate...just glue in some pieces of 2x4 or something...

Yeah, could definitely do that. And it wouldn't look bad through the window if done properly.

Oh, I forgot about his plexi windows...yeah he'd have to be careful about where he placed them...

Nah, poly-fill is actually used to make smaller enclosures "act" like larger enclosures.
The opposite of what he needs :p
Plus, that'd look un-sightly through the window IMO.
