Perhaps, but personally I think the value of it is limited with a ported sub. That stuff is acoustically transparent at the frequencies we're dealing with here. I did use it on the last sub I built, but honestly, I felt like it was likely wasted effort the entire time I was doing it. Stuffing
, like you'd do with a sealed box, is an entirely different subject. But I really doubt you'd miss the lining in a ported box. In fact, I've seen suggestions against
it, though I've also seen proponents of it.
