    Hey there Marv.

    I am the Dan from virginia tech that talked to you a while back about putting in a down-fireing sub in his access cab. I just can't make the money work out until after I graduate college and maybe join the military. How ever, in the meantime I want to reinstall my speakers with better baffles, and try to work some deadening into the budget. I feel this is much more important than a sub anyway.

    My question is: since I am on a budget, what is the best way to make my own baffles (I know what tools from a previous question, but am looking for more specifics now)? Should I get a sheet of MDF and use the templates that came with the speakers? Are there better materials than mdf?

    Thanks a bunch!
    Dan

    Sorry to not answer this sooner Dan but I've been EXTREMELY busy and my BBQ meet preparation is taking a LOT of my time lately as well! :eek:
    "Better" material depends on your definition of "better" and would be very subjective concerning sound (some believe they can "hear" a difference between certain materials ;)). In any case MDF will work perfectly fine and I suggest you just spray them with black paint or another sealer if you are concerned with moisture.
