    I lined it with adhesive backed 1/8" foam insulation, and then stuffed it with 12 ounces of fluffed up poly fill. That did everything that I had hoped for. No more rattle schmattle kaboom of doom! Much cleaner, and better punch. Thanks everyone for the ideas, and 6thplanet, thanks again for the offer.🤘 Glenn.

    It's vibrating the fairing when the bass and kick drum hit hard. I have no damping in it, and with a 400 watt amp, I can get a good amount of output. All of the hardware is rock solid and quiet. It's definitely a box damping issue, and I've fixed it on another fairing in the past with stick on damping material, I am just curious to try different methods. Apparantly, I like to rock!🤘🔊🤘Glenn.

    That is a very kind and generous offer, 6thplanet! I would love to hear some of the speakers that you have designed and built. Glenn.

    Craig, do you think that the density of the curved foam would act to lessen the internal volume of the enclosure? I think that I am going to give this a try. Glenn.
    I think it will do just what you are looking for.

    That would be too sensible and easy! And I forgot to mention, that I am always looking for the cheapest way that actually works. Lol. Glenn.

    I may go this route if the foam doesn't give me the desired outcome. Thanks. Glenn.

    That would work very well to seal the inner and outer fairing, I would assume. I'm actually more concerned with damping the enclosure, so that I won't get the box boom effect from harder hitting bass, and thinking that it would tighten the bass, and clean up the mids as well by lessening back wave reflection through the speaker cone. Glenn.

    I could do that with a bead of silicone, but I'm more concerned with the stuffing material that I could use that won't hold moisture. I may be over thinking it, as far as being worried about it being much of a problem. It isn't a problem unless I have it cranking for clarity at higher speeds. Glenn.
