    Polyfil

    I have a box that is about 2.2 ft cubed and I would like to fill it with polyfil to make it seem like its around 1.75 ft cubed. First of all how much of a difference will this make to my sub its in a sealed enclosure and do you just put it in the box or do you glue or hold it down some way? Thanks

    If it moves and it's not suppose to use DuckTape...If it doesn't move and it's suppose to use WD-40

    Polyfill will make your box sound bigger than it really is. You need to put something in your box to take up more airspace so that the net effect is a smaller internal volume.

    Re: Polyfil

    You use polyfil to make the sub react as if it were in a larger enclosure not to take up space. If you need to take up room you can put blocks of wood or something inside the enclosure, I would use it to make bracing inside the enclosure.

    According to what your subs specs are putting it into a smaller enclosure will do different things, but generally you increase power handling at the expense of low end response in a smaller enclosure.

    Re: Polyfil

    Drop some mdf scraps in there and see. You can always lay them in the bottom of the enclosure temporarily. Find the sound your after, and then permanently install them
