Default polyester fill for boxes....

What kind do I buy? is it the same stuff that is used on pillows?? does it have to be packed tightly or loosely or in between? also should the box be filled to the top or just add a little to box, if it is filled to top of box will it interfere with the woofer moving back and forth??

dont fill the box so full that the stuffing will end up getting all over the sub. You dont want it to get into the basket and what not on the back of the woofer

Your ultimate goal is to take up all the empty space in the box.

i used the pink insulation(house insulation) in my old box. But pillow stuffing should work. or you can go to hobby store and get a bag of Poly-fill. You can also spray some adhesive in the box, insulation should stick to it and should keep the fill in its place
