in my box i got the poly fill from walmart, it was fairly priced, and just played with it. I ended up not having very much polyfill in my box at all to get the best results. you just have to play with it for a while

The general rule is 1 lb of polyfill (or pillow stuffing as mentinoed earlier) per 1 cubic foot of enclosure volume. If you have .625 cubic feet of enclosure volume, fill the enclosure with 9 or 10 ounces of stuffing.
