In the past when I built my sealed subs I just stuffed them with fluffy fiberglass.
Now that I am building LCR and surrounds what is the proper procedure for inside of the cabs.
If it makes a difference I am building the deltalite kits.

Thanks,
Moto

Got cheap Walmart pillows to stuff my sub cabs from Erich's 4 cuft flat packs for SI HT18D4. Will try to stuff them in the back of the cabs between braces. Do I need to open the pillows or can I just place them in the back of the cab with cloth cover intact so that nothing loose is flying around?

I really like the Bonded Logic recycled denim insulation. Works about as well as fiberglass, but no itch.

What is the impact of using memory foam for a sealed woofer design?

It would probably be over damped. It also could end up with a higher Q despite being overdamped, because the density of memory foam is so high that the cabinet volume might actually be reduced.
