    replacing baffle

    How feasible is it to cut a double baffle off the top of a box and replace it? Anyone ever try this? I want to do because Im thinking of changing subs, possibly from an 18" to 6 8"s

    depends on tools, not difficult.

    I certainly have access to the proper tools. But as long as its done correctly there shouldn't be a problem with the structure of it?

    it shouldn't hurt any thing structurally, if worried about that just add a little bracing to the added baffle.

    Re: replacing baffle

    I've wanted to do that before. I guess as long as its right sized and sealed well, you'll be good

    Head Unit: JVC KW-AV61BT
