    holes too close???

    okay so I got the apxx mounted today and 3 of the holes for the bolts that hold it are right on the edge of the cutout... there is about 1/8" of mdf between the hole and the edge of the cutout. I am worried that that mdf will just break being that it isnt that strong, should I be worried or just let er ride?

    Put a second baffle on top of the hole.

    actually, I think if I take small strips of fiberglass and some resin and put them on the edge of the cutout where the holes are a little too close, I think that would fix it if I do about 3 layers... dat shiz be strong yo.
