    I am building a 115L ported 12" shiva sub. I am about to put the end walls on and I am wondering if I should line the interior walls w/ batting material. The vented shiva plans say not to but i have read alot either way.

    My cabinet is 3/4 mdf and braced well.

    any input would be appreciated. thanks

    If you're building one of the Adire designs follow their suggestions. They've optimized the design with LspCAD.

    Hi perry.Did you find out about stuffing or lining the walls of your sub?
    I am going to use the ported 7.5ft^3 adire plans and it says to use 64oz of polyfill,but i don't know if this means filling the insides or lining the walls.
    Any ideas?
