My current project is a 3.5 cu ft cabinet with a 500 watt Bash amp and an IXL-12.2.2 (slot port 3" x 6" x 36.75" long). Will acoustic stuffing be useful for my sub? In other words, will it make any difference?:dunno:
Also, what exactly is a crossover and should it be used for a subwoofer?:huh:
Finally, what kind of wire do I need to use to hook the plate amp to the driver?:hide:

And THANK YOU Mike P. for all your help so far! Your advice has been fantastic!:jump:

Edit* Can anybody recommend any speaker building books they like? I have seen a few, but I was wondering if there were any that were particularly good.

Acoustic stuffing is used in ported subs to tame a peaky response and it also reduces the ports output a bit. You don't need it for your build.

Assuming you will be using a AV receiver, the crossover is built into it. It passes the frequencies from 80 hz and below to the sub.

For connecting the amp to the sub I've always used 10 gauge wire. 12 gauge would probably be fine also.
