<p>How to make a 6inch woofer box and box size</p>
AARCHBOLD asks<br>I think my subwoofer`s skeakers are too small. Can I just change them for two bigger ones without damaging the subwoofer ? What detail should I take into account before doing it ?<br><br>
thank you.. this will help me alot.. including the comments..
why do you say &quot;without buying polyfill&quot;<br/> pillow stuffing <em>is</em> polyfill<br/>
No it acts like a buffer... it does the same but for the fraction of the price
No, it is the same stuff, just not at the inflated markups that audio shops charge. I found it cheaper to actually buy pre-stuffed pillows and gut them when they were on sale then even getting the pillow stuffing on its own.
we used to use fiberglass, but you couldn't use the insulation grade stuff, you had to get special long fiber fiberglass so that the fibers wouldn't get into the speaker suspension and make it sound all scrapy. polyfill oughta be a lot easier to work with.
i just stuffed a pillow in mine.
how tight should you pack it?
Usually you would pack it about one pound to every cubic foot.<br /> you can &nbsp; play around with the amount of stuffing too.<br /> Adding stuffing to any&nbsp;subwoofer&nbsp;will slow down the air flow in side of the subwoofer resulting in am bigger box.&nbsp;
what should be used to stuff it? cotton balls?
&nbsp;You can use polyester pillow stuffing, which can be found in any craft store.<br />
you could just buy a good sub to begin with.
Is that why people put stuffing in their drums? (to increase the bass)
effectively yes and no. the pillows in kick drums are to help guard against a punchy sound. if a drummer is performing onstage and they need pillows in their drum then the sound tech sucks. pillows in drums are for home use basically
should you stuff it full or just put a little bit in?
any idea on the effects on different wattages? how many watts are you at, what size speaker?
