If i could seal them up there then my mids would be completely sealed in my fiberglass pods. I still get decent mid, a lot better than without the pods, but i think they would handle a bit more power if they were sealed. Air leaks past the little metal thing if its installed and if its not then right through the hole.
on some songs i could actually hear the air leaking, which is annoying!
would adding a cone work?

hand made german speakers among the best quality made.
i have done it several times it gives them quite a midbass kick.

I never did an on axis response test so I wouldnt be able to compare. They dont sound different to me, maybe my ears ****.
