    you would have to peel the carpet off and make new face for it. but i dont even think that would be air tight considering no peice of MDF is gonna be 100% flat. prob get massive air leaks

    or just lay another piece of MDF on the front over the existing cutting 10" holes out of it. It will be like having a reinforced front with 2 pieces of mdf
