In general, when building full range speakers cabinets, should you add polyfill to the cabinets or even a little bit of spongy foam? FYI, I'm cutting them at 80 hz.

Nearly all speakers should be either lined or filled with damping, depending on the design. You probably should spend some time here before embarking on a build:
