    This weekend and next I'm building myself a new bass cab and finishing the keyboard amp I've been working on already. I got acousti-stuf polyfill to use inside both enclosures, but i developed a problem. Is there some sorta clever method to get the stuff spread out in a blanket-like form for getting it on the walls of the enclosure? I did a crappy job of it using my hands, and it looks like a clumpy 3000 year old spiderweb now. Can any of you suggest a method of not ruining another batch? Also, what's a good method of securing it to the walls. Staple gun work ok? Thanks guys.

    I stapled mine in place. But mine had one furry side and one flat that was supposed to be against the wall. Mine came in a big roll. Dont know if this works in every case.
     
  3. My wife works at Hancock Fabrics and brings me bags of fiber fill, when I want loose stuffing, or sheets of quilting fiber fill that stays in sheet form. You can lay a few beads of RTV on the cab walls and this stuff sticks to it well. Be sure to let the RTV completely dry, as it will rot foam surround drivers.

    Is this Acousta-stuf as loose and fiddly as it looks in the parts express pic?

    Ths stuf I use comes in a nice neat roll that attaches easily with staples:-

    My AcoustaStuf came as a big cotton-candy type ball... Fluffed out fine when pulled apart. I used 3M Spray adhesive to hold it in place... Spray the inside walls, (one at a time worked best...), fluff the 'Stuf and apply... It does tend to get spider-webby, but I haven't had any real issues because of that...
