I talked to one of the techs at parts express he said not to worry about the foam taking any space.
It is actually the opposite right? Damping material makes the enclosure seem larger to the driver. Note that closed cell foam should not be used for this.

Re: another css 10" build

eyekode, I was thinking the same thing. Although it isn't as free flowing as other materials used to stuff enclosures (ie Polyfill), the open cell must do a little to help. I think its partly to help deaden any resonance or driver/port noise, etc. from echoing inside the box, and partly to help reduce the air speed within the enclosure which gives the driver the perception of a larger box. I believe that for speakers dealing with higher frequencies (shorter wavelengths) it should also help to reduce the effect of standing waves / backwave in the enclosure, but that won't be much of an issue for a sub.

Re: another css 10" build

Cool idea for the port Rodny! I have a feeling this is going to be worth following...

Great idea on port shape. I can see this being used in my future.
