    sealing off sub air leaks?

    I have alot of air leaks coming from the trim/gasket of the sub so i want to line it with something underneath.

    I tried one sided high density weather stripping but it was too thick and didn't give as much as i thought it would. Put too much stress on the screws so i took it off

    Anything other than tape on the outside of the sub?

    Loudness, a subjective measure, is often confused with objective measures of sound pressure such as decibels or sound intensity.

    They're brand new only a few hours play on them i hope i don't need a recone.

    Pretty sure its air escaping from the gasket though.
