So I made some cans out of 6" pvc and installed Polk Audio db 650's in 'em - out the back they sound great, however, in the boat they sound kinda "boomy" and muffled...I DID NOT put any dampening material in the can...should I do this? and what should I use, just fiberglass batt insulation, something more rigid?

Sorry, no pics, our digi went in the river a while back

Better to use dacron batting from the fabric store (or out of an old pillow, jacket, sleeping bag) than fiberglass. Fill them full with lightly fluffed stuffing.

Hey Mikeski,

Filled 'em last night, they seemed to sound better at low volumn, havne't cranked 'em up yet.

Thanks for the tip
