I wouldn't use pillows, use poly-fill.


Google for resources... here .

Actually, the Wally pillows are just rolled up polyfill...for a lower price to boot!


Sorry Turdle--I dont have a number for you

If that is the case, then ya, use pillows. But, make sure that is the case or they probably won't do a whole lot.


The link I provided will tell you how many pounds to use.

Thanks for the fast response guys. I am on the way to Wally world now. I figure 4 pillows per box should do.


Thanks again.

Neo Dan just used walmart pillows if i remeber correctly in the boxes he designed the "easy end table" ones. Im going to be glueing some polyfill to the sides of my enclosure on my new speakers build, but it is cheaper to buy the pillows and just cut them up haha.

Walmart also sells the polyfill by itself. That's where I got mine. It's good quality stuff. Perfect for filling closed boxes

Yep, they sell 1lb. and I think 5lb. bags.


At least that way it is metered so you know exactly how much you are putting in...not compressed.

Just got home from walmart. Everyone looked at me like I had a racoon on my head. I assume it was cause I had 8 pillows in a shopping cart. LOL


Anyway, I cut the polyfill out of the pillow case and weighed the actual polyfill at 1.25lbs per pillow. @ $2.50 a pillow that better than buying a pound of polyfill by itself at $2.97. The pillow says 100% polyester fibers. It looks and feels just like the other stuff.


Just wanted to give a headsup. Thanks for the assistance with that link it told me just how much I needed.

sorry for reviving an old thread, but is there any real difference between sticking the whole pillow in vs tearing it up and filling the box (stuffing rates being equal).

As title says... What is the reccomended amount for a 22" sealed cube. Around 4.7 cubic feet.


Thanks

Enough to get the Q down to where you want it. The only way to know is by measuring the result with a WT3 or the equivalent.

I think a lot of people leave it in the pillow so it doesn't go anywhere. I believe it was 1lb per 1cubic foot that I last read. Reasonably close to 1ppcf (pillow per cubic foot).

Yeah, figured pillow form is neater and wouldn't want stuff flying out the ports, thanks!
