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?

Haha sorry I missed the vented part, going the bass reflex route certainly complicates things, as your port tuning has to take any internal damping material into account...which is why I'm not a huge fan of them...but in this case I would still say to use some internal damping, it'll keep them from having a 'hollow' sound, but somehow find a way to experiment with your port tuning, use a paper towel roll or some pvc pipe you can add pieces to in order to 'tune' the port to get the response you want, as once you've added damping to the internals it does change the formulas for port length/diameter.
