    So it's the shape that's important. Use eggboxes! Don't buy the stuff.

    Didn't it state that it was made from wood pulp? And I thought it was not hollow.

    I think you may be putting too much emphasis on the job of the internal foam. It doesn't change your sound dramatically, especially in a vented box. It really serves to prevent standing waves and even cheap foam does that quite well.

    IMO if you lined up 4 identical cabs with 4 different types of stuffing, the only one you would be audibly be able to pick out is the one with no foam at all.
