Im going to be building a box for a 15" soon, and the max height I can fit in my trunk is about 17", which the leaves the baffle at 15.5. The mounting diameter is 14" and the outside is 15.5". Will this be okay? I will double baffle it to with 3/4".
I was thinking of flush mounting it too, but with that take away the point of double baffling in this case?
Thanks

you should be fine, and good on the double baffle with the flush mount

most cars only have a trunk height of 16"-17" anyways. you will be fine. i have my 15" brahma like that...only 16" tall. make the front of the box 16" tall and not 14.5"....this will give you a little more strength. the hole's edges will almost be even with the inner box's top and bottom.

Oh yea, I kind of forgot about that. Sounds good. Thanks. I cant wait. Now if it would stop snowing I can build the box :)

I had the same issue with a 15 1/2" tall box. I did little cut outs top/bottom instead of leaving a sliver of wood. Box has a triple baffle....
