View Full Version : Is there a way to measure polyfill accurately?
I was wanting to use Polyfill (just for giggles) instead of the fiber glass inside my speakers currently - and I was wondering what was the best and most effective way to go about measureing it...

Double posting it tonight, huh?
Anyhoo, grab a rubbermaid bin or something and weight it on a scale. Write down that weight. Now add the amount of polyfil you want to use. Write down that weight. Subtract the weight of the bin from the total weight of bin + polyfil. That's how much polyfil you have.
Dangit! My connection is screwy lately... so slow and booting me like crazy!
Thanks - would a regular scale work fine (kind you weigh yourself) - I'm figuring this is under 1 pound...
Thanks... sorry for the double post

Yeah...just reach in grab a handful...that should work fine.
This post inspired by Sid's equally irrelevant posts in my 'Physics Question' thread.

Dunno. Most bathroom scales aren't that accurate I would think. You could try it. I can't promise results though.
Don't they sell polyfil in bags that are listed in volume but have weight listed also? Like 2 liters of polyfil (38 grams) or some silly stuff like that?
BTW, easy place to find conversion tools and calculators: http://www.math.com

Oh yeah. Don't go and get raped by the audio stores selling polyfil. It's the same stuff as what you can get in the arts/crafts and fabric stores for 1/5th what an audio/video store will sell it for.
All polyfil is is spun polyester. Sometimes nylon but usually polyester.
