I currently use a foam baffle for each of my Rainbow Profi kickbass woofers and was wondering if foam baffles degrade performance of the speaker. I do have a huge hole cut underneath the baffles for air to escape, but does that still affect performance? My dad said that the speakers would get wet without them, and it would eventually destroy the speakers. Although the seller told me the speakers are built like a tank (in which they are) it still makes me wonder if water/moisture would destroy the speakers eventually. Any ideas?
