Product Details

Acousta-Stuf Polyfill Speaker Cabinet Sound Damping Material 1 lb. Bag

Acousta-Stuf, a synthetic material made from crimped fibers, is an excellent choice for filling or stuffing small enclosures or transmission line cabinets. Long fiber wool has been a favorite among serious speaker builders but Acousta-stuf is less expensive than long fiber wool and does not have the problem of harboring moths. Acousta-Stuf™ also outperforms Dacron, foam, and fiberglass.

Acousta-Stuf sound absorption damping fiber deepens bass, provides cleaner midrange, and improves the dynamic extension of any speaker system. There are no health hazards with Acousta-Stuf and no mask or gloves are needed when using this product; the melting point is a very high 490°F. Most sealed and vented enclosures require 1/2 lb. of damping material per cubic foot of enclosure. For best results it is recommended to loosely fill the material throughout the enclosure.

Acousta-Stuf Polyfill Speaker Cabinet Sound Damping Material 1 lb. Bag
Acousta-Stuf Polyfill Speaker Cabinet Sound Damping Material 1 lb. Bag is rated 4.4545 out of 5 by 66.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Poly-Fill Matting for cabinets.Good Poly-Fill Matting for cabinets. I prefer the "speaker pad matting better but was unable to source it. This is good poly fill but too expensive and hard to glue down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as designed - deeper bassRebuilding several old speakers and upgrading in the process. This fill was part of the upgrade.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great itemI got this material for my two sub boxes measuring 2.7 cu.ft. each. The speakers installed were ment for a 2.1 cu.ft. box. The sound coming from them was weak and the bass wasn't that deep despite the 1500 rms @ 2ohms they were getting. After accousta stuff was inserted into the boxes, their bass came alive. The sound is a lot better my house walls vibrate enough and I'm a happy customer, thanks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice productI am pleased with this product, the only thing is that I have to buy like 4 more pounds for my application.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic ProductI purchased PE Acousta-Stuf Polyfil, #260-317, 1 lb., to tame the bass in the Dayton 652 PE speakers. I added 2 oz. recommended by reviewers. Incredible. It tamed the boom of the base to a cleaner tone. I have a bout 12 oz. remaining, that will be used in the speaker cabs I am prepping to build. I have used quilt or pillow batting before, however, the Acousta Stuf is the real deal. It is a little more dense than batting and really dampens cabinet resonance very well. Thanks PE. Your products keep me coming back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does what its supposed toUsed this in a small ported subwoofer build. It definitely cleaned up the sound a bit, but don't expect a huge difference. Still would recommend it over nothing.

Acousta-Stuf Polyfill Speaker Cabinet Sound Damping Material 1 lb. Bag

I am trying to design a transmission line enclosure. How much is the speed of sound slowed by this filling.  Does the percentage change with frequencies.

Asked by: spazmaster
The speed of sound is not slowed, rather the stuffing absorbs the back wave. This is frequency dependent, and the longer the wave (lower the frequency) the more material is required. Generally TL's are stuffed from the rear of the driver to the terminus, the amount or density of this stuffing is determined by the end user.

If I have a sealed cabinet that is .53ft^3 how much of this should I use?

Asked by: thatnoob
We recommend starting with a half pound per cubic foot of volume, this means you should start with about 1/4 of the bag. You can then add or remove stuffing to get the sound you want.

Hello How much Acousta stuff polyfill material do i need to fill two chambers of 2,5 cf volume each?

Asked by: Jonvold
There is no right or wrong answer for this. We usually recommend about a half pound per cubic foot of airspace but you can adjust to suit to personal taste.

what kind of cabinet is this for?

I'm building a pair of ported bookshelf speakers, is this suitable for dampening them (each cabinet is roughtly 2 ft^3)? how does this compare to regular acoustic foam?Thanks
Asked by: ben199
I generally recommend stuffing a sealed cabinet and lining a ported cabinet. Both products work to achieve the same result but in two different ways. I usually use standard fiberglass insulation or Sonic Barrier sheets for ported cabs.

When using Polyfill, is the volume of material or the weight (density) of the

material more important? If you use 1lb per cuft and the fill settles, do you need additional fill? Which dampens more - the volume or the mass.
Asked by: WaxLips
It doesn't settle. Most of the time it is sticking out of the box and you have to mush it in to fit the driver. I weigh it out on a digital scale in a plastic salad bowl. I take little clumps and pull and pull to get a uniform density. The pile ends up being huge and if you mush it then it will pop right back. I suppose you could say the weight is a suggestion. One pound will give you a certain volume no matter how much you fluff it out. My old boss used to stuff it in pantyhose, tie off the leg, and throw it in. Personally, I like to stretch it for all it's worth and lay out many thin uniform layers to cover all internal spots of the box.

What's to keep the fluf out of the back of the speaker?

Asked by: Masterbrk
Nothing. The whole bag of this stuff is pretty much one big clump. You have to rip off chunks and pull and pull to strech it out to a uniform layer. It's not like little hairs will be flying around. Most sealed boxes that I've weighed it out for end up being pretty full. The sub kind of pushes it down in the box. I've never noticed it inside the frame of the sub when taking it out. My old boss used to put it in nylons and tie it off then throw it in the box.
