well i noticed the opening in my door for my mids is like 1/4" to big. there are gaps around the speaker so i'm gonna make a baffle. i'm not good though with cutting out baffle out of wood. i'm thinking that i might try to fiberglass so baffles. would fiberglass work as a good baffle? how many layers of mat/cloth and resin mix should i use?

Your saying Fiberglass is going to be easier than cutting wood??? Are you in bizarro world?

Cut out a template using cardboard,, trace it on to MDF and use a jigsaw to cut out the baffle.

yeah kinda confused on the fiberglass being easier than cutting out a simple baffle

i guess you guys are not understanding what i want to do. the depth is not the problem so i don't have to make the baffle come outwards, just inwards. i was thinking that all would have to do is get some resin/hardner and the cloth and just cut out a ring where the speaker would fit, and attach it to the door.

Quite an expensive way to solve the problem. Too much hassle...as it will to tough to get uniformly level as well...
