Hi folks,

New to the site and glad to be here. I am building a sealed subwoofer and I have built a sealed enclosure that is approximatly 0.25 cubic feet too large (newbie mistake) for the recommendation of the subwoofer manufacturer. The manufacturer does not offer a range for the sealed air volume. The speaker calls for 1.75 cubic feet and my box is 2.00 cubic feet. Is this exceedance going to make a large impact on the overall sound quality of my subwoofer?

Any feedback you can offer would be much appreciated!

Thanks.....

Styro foam....like the kind people use for home insulation? That is a great idea. Will the styro foam degrade the sound at all?

Thanks Mike....I will give it a shot. I also considered using some left over MDF and fixing it to the inside of the enclosure. Would add some more weight....weight is a good thing, right?
