    No, it will not make a difference, both are strong materials.

    plexi can be a pain to work with if you don't know what you are doing (like me)... for instance I've never successfully cut a peice myself... I always crack it

    predrill everything. i would double baffle the front, and cut out a rectangle, and *inset* the plexi inside of the outer baffle, that mounts to the inner baffle.

    kind of like the idea behind flush mounting a sub.
