Maybe try a Bafflle step compensation something Ike 1.5mh inductor and 3R resistor on your positive wire. That wil bring that bright rising top down quiet a bit and further fatten up the Bass.

Typically none so as to extract maximum bass.

sarathssca,

The mesh helps hold the poly-fill better. It is possible that the poly-fill itself might stay in place on its own, as it is light and fluffy, and has friction against the cabinet walls; the mesh gives more assurance that it won't fall down.

I created a suspension wire using eyes and then placed the thinest layer of sheet with a few spots of super glue to hold it in place. That stops the fill from getting lost.

garym999,

Nice work with the suspension, and I am assuming that the thin sheet is working for you. Personally I would be more comfortable with some thing with more holes in it vs the sheet you put in place. In your case, probably a few more criss-crosses of the string over the eyelets would have been enough also to keep the poly-fill in place (no sheet required).

The sheet is really thin. I did think about something a little more solid but I did not want any chance of any rattles after the event.

I used some "pea netting" stapled to the sides to form a basket for BAF fibre, but eventually replaced it with a rolled "tube" of Monacor wool fibre.
