DIY sound group's VOLT 6 Version 2

I'm building a set of these in the angled form for surrounds. How much poly fill material should I put in them?

With ported enclosures a foam lining or insulation lining is better, but I use poly on my ported subs. You want a good layer of coverage on all the walls of the box, ensuring a good clean, unobstructed airway between the back of the driver and the port. On a speaker that small I probably wouldn't attempt to add any to the baffle. I find if I get the poly out of a pillow, it sort of unrolls to a single layer and that layer is what glue in with some spray mount. HTH.

Do you have a product you recommend? The last ones I built were the VOLT 10's and they are sealed...

OH never mind I see you said poly out of a pillow. Hmmm. Anything else worth looking at and what is the spray mount you are talking about?

I haven't used anything except the $2.50 pillows at Walmart lol.

Spray mount is just spray glue, spray adhesive, whatever you want to call it. I like the 3M stuff.

For ported speakers/subs I use these: https://www.target.com/p/comfy-foam-...04#lnk=sametab, making sure to keep it away from the port ends.

I attach the pieces to the box with an electric stapler.

Sub builds: Yet another Infinity 1260 build | Twins! | Modified V.B.S.S. build | UM12-22 builds | AV stand and sealed UM18s

Speaker builds: DIYSG HTM-10 build | DIYSG Volt-6 build | DIYSG Fusion-8 builds

If you don't have any spray adhesive just wipe some spare wood glue on the inner panels and the polyfill will stick to it.

I totally forgot I have some of this in the 1/2 inch version. Would this work?

Given the size of the Volt-6 box I think that would be fine.
