    Space between MDF baffle and door

    Hey guys. Well in between my MDF baffle for my speaker, and my door, there are a couple spots with a little space. I'm not sure how essential it is to get these plugged up, but I would imagine it is best to. My quesiton is what kind of material can I use to do this?

    My first thought was resin but I know there is a less messy way. My second idea was someting like clay and play-doh, but how would I get those to stay with swing in temperatures and such, it seems like it might fall off or something.

    So any ideas guys? Or do I even need to? Thanks a lot.


    edit: found something about clay in the sound deadening thread...where can you pick that up? or any other alternatives? thanks.

    someone reccomend Great Stuff (if you don't know what that is, its the expanding foam that hardens...comes in a spray can) and I have that in my garage, so I think that would work best because some of the gaps are too big for silicone.
