    Since my Shiva Redux is coming along slowly, I am at the point to start considering stuffing it. But, since the driver and amp are at the bottom of the enclosure, I don't want my stuffing coming in direct contact with them.

    How have you guys/gals been stuffing your downfiring sonotubes and the like?

    I thought about using some sort of netting or possibly grille cloth to suspend my stuffing over the driver... however, I'm also concerned with how the cloth/netting might affect airflow.

    How are you keeping it up?

    Dave,

    I used speaker grille cloth. It's supposed to be acoustically transparent right? So I cut a piece and glued it above the driver, as a net, to hold stuffing off the drivers.

    Hi. I just recently built a sealed enclosure for my Tempest subwoofer. I bought a can of 3M spray on glue and sprayed one space at a time and then put a layer of acoustastuff over the glued area until all the walls and ceiling were covered. I have been using it for a month now and none of it has come off at all.
    You might think about giving that a try.
    Hope that helps.
