Hello I am currently in the process of building a sealed enclosure with the dimesions of 18"x18"x18" as recommended by CSS for their SDX12 driver. I have the box complete and am currently doing trim work in preparation to clad 4 sides in maple. I don't know how to get pictures loaded up or I would throw a few on to show you what this baby looks like. I am super excited to see the final result but am taking my time to do a really good job (be even more excited if it turns out like I picture in my head). Anyway I am just curious if anyone can tell me how much stuffing if any I should be putting in the enclosure before I install the BASH 500 Watt Amp to seal it up at the end?

Thanks Bill for your response. What would, if any, be the benefits to stuffing the enclosure. I am possibly missing out on sound quality if I don't?:yikes:

That is coming along nicely, I look forward to your impressions when you get it finished.

As for your question, stuffing will make the enclosure look bigger to the driver. But for a small sealed enclosure the difference is minimal.
For a larger enclosure you add lining as well to stop reflected sound coming back out through the driver cone, again this would not be an issue with your design.

Sorry for my absence. I have been awefully tardy. I guess you get one very fun project completed and you move right on to the next. I have a couple of finished pictures of my build. I have been playing some music and movies with it and haven't experimented to much with postioning. However one thing I have noticed and am a bit concerned about is a clipping. We were watching a movie when it got heavy on bass and and the woofer clips is the best way to describe it. What would cause this and what would I do to correct.
