Default Lining inside active subwoofer

I opened up a Yamaha YST-SW80 active subwoofer this afternoon and noticed that the inside of the subs enclosure was lined with thick "under carpet" like material only on the bottom and left side, could it have been designed to work like this or should there be material on the inside top, right side and rear as well?

JdeV,

I would say that this is an example of a major manufacturer doing the bare minimum to keep their cost down. Itís only going to help the speaker if they were to line all the sides, but that would raise the manufacturing cost so they would have to raise the price of the speaker.

Default What was that again!?

I was scanning all the post titles on the main page to see what I would read and I saw this thread, and for one fleeting moment I thought the title was "*Living* inside active subwoofer". I thought hello, someone's pushing the envelope over in kooksville!
