View Full Version : door speaker baffle question

11-14-2009, 02:23 PM
going back to my post about adding 2 woofers in the door.

once i seal it off pretty good theres gonna be alot of presure inside the door that would have to go somewhere, and it will most definitely go thru the window seal and back at the door rattling the sht out of it.

so i was thinkin to make some type of vent or an outlet in the door jambs to relieve the pressure kinda like a port with some foam in it so the water doesnt get in while im driving.

since the sound gonna escape to the outside of the car i thought it would help decrease the dor vibrations so i dont have to add too much sound deadening

why not just make sealed pods instead of using the door as an enclosure, where you will lose air as u said. IMO it seems like the logical thing to do.

im trying to avoid making pods.

but whatever i described is that something that makes sense or not really?

just about every car door in the world has vents in the bottom to let out water. even if you "seal" the door with something it will still have open vents.

I wouldn't worry about the air escaping, it's never been an issue in the installations I have done.
