It would probly help, it will cover up to make sure there is no air passing through your box.

really it won't do any good.
waste of product there.
just be sure teh box is strong, and cross-braced if needed.
polyfill will give the impression of a slightly larger box if you want that.. use about a pount per cubic foot of box space.

fatmat's purpose is to absorb metal vibration and reduce resonance and lower the sympathetic frequency of the sheet metal in the car.
not much point of that with MDF.
If you want to seal the box use clear silicone caulking, and let it dry overnight before installing the subs, as drying silicone lets off fumes that are harmful to the speakers.

Walmart has it in the "crafts" section.

Its the same thing you stuff pillows with.

what Fishy said.
wal-mart. pillow stuffing.
you can buy it in bags for about $3, but for a vented box I'd suggest using it in rolls, and staple gunning it into the box (line the box with it) to prevent blowing it out the ports. :-)
