    Wouldn't want to make them too top heavy. Do you really think it benefits? Sent from my SM-G920P using Tapatalk

      No I wouldn't look to reinforce the mid chamber over the woofer chamber. For the mid chamber I like the varying insulation densities construction when you start with something like Roxul, then fiberglass, then Acousta-Stuf.

        You could also port into the rear chamber and completely damp the rear chamber.
        I think the smaller cavities would benefit from mass filling, without adding too much weight.

            I filled empty cavities in my current system with sand just as a proof of concept since I hadn't tried it before. It was probably around 50 lbs per cabinet total, each speaker weighs over 100 lbs and they are only about 40" tall. They are the deadest cabs I have personally built. I can't prove what difference the sand made, but I'm sure it's doing something worth while. They have virtually no resonance by feel when you put your hand on them and with spikes they are anchored to the floor. The standard knuckle test results in something similar to tapping on a brick wall. Just my $0.02.
            Your results may vary.

                  Lowell,

                  I don't have specific pictures of the sand filled cavities but the red sections in the pic below are the ones I filled. I used a white play sand that had the consistency of sugar.

                        Got the other one all flush trimmed and the bottom glued up. Next weekend I'll round the bottom of the speakers and the top of the bottom. Then I'll start on the sides. Sent from my SM-G920P using Tapatalk
