So i have some rather large speakers with an outside diameter of 7 1/2 (Crystals). I am putting them in the place of the stock 5x7/6x8 holes with 1/2'' MDF baffles. Now after cutting the baffles to fit the speaker and line up with the stock door holes im left with a problem i knew i was going to have.

My door has ridges in it around the 5x7 hole that interfere with the flush mounting of the baffle. Here is a pic in which you can see the ridge.

You can see the ridge in the right hand side...



And here are some pics of me putting the baffle up to the actual door. You can see there are some serious gaps because of the large OD of the speakers and the ridges iin the door.







How would i go about sealing these gaps? Some sort of caulk? Silicone? More dampner? I all ready plan on using non hardning model clay on the finished product but that is no where near strong enough to seal these gaps.

Thanks.

you have to bevel the edges to make it fit

non-hardening clay will work in addition

also, sound dampen over the the door and baffle before adding the woofer

The only problem with that is the outside diameter of my speakers is so large that it goes beyond the ridge itself. So if i were to cut the baffle, my speaker would be hanging off the baffle at that point...
