    That stuffing isn't original. Also appears to be too much as there shouldn't be any behind the passive.

    It looks like the original type, but it definitely should not be behind the passive radiator.

    I’m pretty sure a previous owner did a partial refurbish/upgrade.

    What should I do to correct this? Should I try to roll it up behind the woofers? Or, cut it back?

    Do either of you know of any pictures showing how it should look?

    Do not cut it. Try to roll it up and place up behind the midwoofers and tweeter. Make sure that it is not going to just unroll back down.

    What happens if the packing is behind the passive? What does it do to the sound?

    It will diminish the bass response.

    There should be a roll of batting at the top behind the tweeter. There should also be another piece shaped like a pair of pants. Roll up each "leg" so it fits behind each woofer opening. Then tack the flap to the sides and center brace so it looks like this:

    Thanks David. A picture tells a thousand words! I haven’t started the work on the cabinets yet because I’ve been pretty busy at work. I should be starting that soon though.
