The work deals with further developments of a study previously initiated, in which a macroscopic model of inhomogeneous superfluid turbulence, based on extended thermodynamics, has been formulated. The model choose as fundamental fields, beside the traditional fields, two extra variables: the averaged vortex line length per unit volume and the heat flux. Using this model the propagation of the fourth sound inside a superleak is investigated: it is shown that, if the configuration of the vortex tangle inside the superleak are not altered -on the average- by the presence of the walls, when the fourth sound is propagated, vibrations in the vortex line density are present, too.
