    Re: New box.

    If the cutout out is to big there is only two ways to fix it.

    1. New box

    2. Make an ugly adapter ring to "make it work"

    They are pretty cheap even on ebay or else where really. Heck you can whip one up rather quickly if you wanted to with a simple jig saw.

    Brotip: cut the ring out to the correct size, and then cut the ring in half so it's in 2 pieces. Put the 2 pieces inside the box and attach them to the underside of the baffle. That way it'll just look like the sub was mounted like normal.

    No I didn't mean big enough that your baffle becomes recessed, I mean that the sub still sits on the baffle but the screws will go into the ring thats mounted on the underside.
