Make your subwoofer think it's in a bigger box (1-pound pack)

About the Polyester Fiber Stuffing

The sound wave coming off the back of your subwoofer reacts with the air contained in the box. Polyester fiber stuffing slows down sound waves inside the box, making the subwoofer perform as if the box were bigger. Use 1 to 1-1/2 pounds of stuffing per cubic foot of box volume.

What's in the box:

  • 1 pound of Polyester fiber stuffing

I needed some polyfill to stuff my sealed box. Since I didn't feel like physically going to the store to find it ,I opted to order it from Crutchfield instead.

Q
My new sub requires 1-1.5 cubic airspace and my sealed box is only .90 cubic airspace . The box fits under my 1997 gmc rear seat, can't go bigger. Will this setup work ok?
[ Charles  Dec 31, 2018 ]
3 answers
A
The stuffing does not increase air space. So no this will not make the box bigger from .9 cuft to 1 or 1.5 cuft. This is best to help reverberating sound waves be knocked down, so to speak, helping the clarity of the sound. Your best bet is to find a speaker that fits the available air space (0.9 cuft) condition
[ bighunt83  Jan 01, 2019 ]

Hi Charles, This is one of those cheap things to just try and see how it works. Poly is used in smaller boxes when the speaker requires more volume.

Using the fiber stuffing will make the sub think it is in a larger box, and that should make up for the smaller box dimensions you actually have.
[ MICHAEL  Dec 31, 2018 ]
A
Yes it will. You're not going to pack it super tight. It comes in an almost 1 cubic box. When filling you want a consistency of wimpy pillow. You are essentially creating a denser air space inside the the box which causes the inward speaker excursion to be tighter and then the outward movement is freer causing the bass sound wave to explode. Just be sure it is truly a sealed box and not a ported box. I have even used foam gaskets between the speaker and box. The sealed box gives a more natural bass sound than a ported one which is muffled.

When you add polyfill you are tricking the sub into thinking it's in a larger enclosure by slowing the rear waves . It's not used to make enclosure smaller. Hope this helps
[ jacob  Mar 29, 2017 ]
A
I'm not sure it makes a big box smaller, It makes a small box seem bigger. Please ask one of the techs they should know for sure.
[ Roland  Mar 28, 2017 ]
A
Well that is not technically how it works. Polyfill just makes it seem like that there is more air in a box. In order to accomodate for the necessary amount the sub requires. So the answer is a no. Keep looking for a box or switch to a different pair of subs that closely match a box.

Q
Thinking of putting this in an 8" wedge box with .35 cubic feet. I'll be putting 2 8" RF extreme performance mid-bass speakers in the boxes. Will the stuffing imporove the sound at all or make it louder?
[ Ricky  Nov 25, 2015 ]
3 answers
A
Hi I'm Alan I myself think the stuffing helps make the box not sound hallow or vibrate the box. When you us use the stuffing fluff the stuffing in the box once you have ran the wires to the out side inputs. In general the stuffing makes the bass sound just a bit hard because the subwoofer has back pressure.
[ ROBERT  Nov 26, 2015 ]
A
I've put Poly stuffing in every sealed sub box I've had. Doing so will make your sub perform as if it were in a bigger box. I've found that in sealed applications it produces a harder/punchy/accurate response at the bottom of the frequency range, not necessarily louder. Hope this helps.
[ MICHAEL GREGORY  Nov 26, 2015 ]
A
If you want to use speaker baffling, this is a much better material than fiberglass. Small pieces won't break off that can enter your speaker. That said, adding this material won't make the sound any louder. It typically is used to smooth out the lower frequencies so the music is more natural sounding and less 'boxy or boomy.' Don't stuff the box tight. Use a small amount, pull it to fluff it out, and very loosely fill the enclosure. The effect is more noticeable with larger enclosures with woofers, but even in a smaller box it can make the sound more natural. Hope this helps. Allen

Stuff it! What size box are you using? Used it in a compact box with a 12" Kicker.
[ JEREMY  Nov 21, 2014 ]
A
David, Personally, I did my best to increase the thickness of the stuffing by lightly pulling on it from different directions. Once it was fluffed up, I gently put into the enclosure trying to not to pack it down and loosely filling the inside of the enclosure. You want the sound waves from the woofer to be slow down as it passes through the fibers. If the fiber is packed to tight it will act more like a wall and part of the sound wave could be bounced back to the backside of the woofer casing distortion and possible reduce the life of the woofer. If the enclosure will be moving around, you might want to spray the inside of the enclosure with Spray Mount or some other types of spray adhesives. To keep the fibers from shifting around. I hope this helps.
