View Full Version : Should I use a foam baffle,box, or just mount it?

06-09-2003, 11:06 PM
I will be finally putting my system in my car next weekend and I can not decide on what to do. So I turn to the "experts" to help me out. I am putting 5 1/4 in the stock locations in the back of my '91 Ford Escort
With the sub speaker box in the back as well, should I try and build a box for the speaker to fit in that location, use a foam baffle, or just stick it in there and it be just fine?
Please give me you opinions. If someone has another Idea besides what I have listed, please let me know. I already have speakers in the front doors and do not have the expertise to build a fiberglass Kick.

Thanks in advance!!!!

If you have problems with moisture then I would say go with a foam baffle. Otherwise I would just put some dampner around the mounting hole and the surrounding metal. It will help kill any resonances and the annoying rattles. :)

whoaa !!

You have a perfect place to get stinky !

Make a form that fits in there (soundchamber) and then get some polyster matts, drain them in polyster and attach them over your form, allow it to dry and u+ll have a foolproof chamber.

Note that you should use foam or other dampening before putting in the form...
