    Where do you get polyfill at? I assume this is just the polyester cotton-like material that is somtimes found in cushions, etc? Craft store?

    How full should you stuff a sub box? You don't want to cut off all air flow, right?

    Walmart has the stuff. When you stuff, do not overdo it. Leave your ports clear and leave some cearance around your amp for cooling purposes.

    What sub? DIY or pre-built? If DIY, what are the specs?

    I just bought the Audiosource 15 based on this site's forum and audioreview.com

    Looks like I need to make some mods to the wiring from the amp to the driver and then add some fill.

    I bought the 15 over the JBL 12 (horrible return and failure rate), Polk 150W 10, and the Dayton 10.

    I was concerned the 10s would be too small when I moved into a house. I'm sure the 15 is overkill for my current setup.

    Also, I don't have the killer media rooms like you guys yet so I'm holding off on the SVS etc. And my main need was for music, not home theatre.
