    Need to drill?




    The old 5.25" speaker is shown.
    My new speakers (eDi6500) are too deep and too wide. So I am guessing that I will need to do the MDF ring spacer. However, some of the cone will most likely still be outside the perimeter of the current hole. I am guessing this will cause me sound problems? In which case I will need to drill the hole bigger anyway?

    nah, a baffle should suffice.

    More proof.

    No, Andy, I'm sure the context is fine.

    Baffle, as in foam speaker baffle, or a deflex pad? Cuz I already bought a deflex pad.

    no a baffle, like a mdf mounting ring.
