Hi folks.

I'm just concluding the final phase for a simple vented box.

As I constructed the cabinet entirely based on the speakers properties, now should I leave the inside of the cabinet free or...
may I stuff there a small carpet in "U" shape, going around the vertical part of the vent?
Is it necessary? Or do I just leave like it is?

Most (well designed) speakers have something to dampen internal reflections. Some designs work best stuffed, and some work best with some or all of the internal panels lined. Carpet is probably not the best material, but if it's what you have, give it a try. Fibreglas insulation is often used, and there are other materials specifically made for speakers (maybe acoustically/technically better and probably less "nasty" to work with).

At this point it's probably best to experiment. Line the internal walls of one speaker and leave the other as-is, and A/B them. Then maybe stuff the "rejected" speaker and compare it to the speaker that "won" the previous A/B test.
