12-24-2007, 02:06 PM
i have a bunch of these XTC speaker baffels. there like a foam molded speaker enclosure to keep water off the back of the speakers when installed in doors's ect... my question is after i completely soundeadin my doors. ( im gunna go overkill on soundedining my doors.. 3 layers on the inner and outer panel ect) should i use a set of the baffels too when i install my type x woofer in the door? or should i just leave the back of the woofer exposed?...

thinking about useing the baffle but cutting it in half so the woofer is exposed but no water will drip/ get on the woofer...

basicly. should i use the baffles as an enclosure... or go baffel less

i have mdf speaker rings cut out that i will be useing w/ or w/out the baffels.. just to let ya know.

i am also stuck on the same course.

i have fully dreadened doors and i got a pair or aa poly mids crurrently. i use the baffle to seal the speaker.

with it it give it a more (sealed) dynamic sound and bass is good at a higher octave. without the xtc baffle it lets the speaker play lower (infinite baffle)

i just got a pair of SDX7 mids (extremis generation) and i am going 3 way active.

i plan on making the baffles into an aperiodic enclosure

search many ppl have talked about the xtc foam here.
