    Hello all,

    Just getting ready to stuff my diy sealed subs to affect a virtual increase in box size. Question is what with? I was thinking (to keep the price down) of purchasing a 100% polyester quilt and using the stuffing in that? Has anyone tried this?

    I have read some experts on the internet that advise against the "pillow stuffing" variety of pollyester (found in quilts/duvets and pillows) in favour of proper audiograde pollyester. But what can the difference be apart from price?

    Alternatively I could use fiberglass loft insulation from B&Q but don't really want to work with such an irritant while experimenting with different stuffing quantities. Has anyone had experience with this?

    Does anyone know where to get the product often reffered to as "Pollyfil" (not the putty type pollyfil!) but the pollyester stuffing?

    Any advice appreciated.

    Simon

    don't go near fibreglass, horrible stuff :lesson:

    try Maplins or CPC for proper wadding it doesn't cost much and is much safer

    Cheers, didn't know Maplins did wadding I must have overlooked that. I'll check out their website for price.

    Thanks,
