Got a really nice 2watt wreck that i want to put into an existing combo cab. The cab has 220mm whole in baffle! I need 270mm for a nicely broken in Lorantz driver. What effect will choking up the hole have? Glad to lose some SP even tho

sorry.
what will happen if i put a 270mm Diameter speaker in a box with a 220mm hole in it?
good things or bad things?
good things would be the same sound, less volume.
bad things would be anything else i suppose

Depends.

I did this with a cabinet that had holes for 8" drivers, and rear-mounted 10"s in it. When I played loud bass guitar, the cones came forward and hit the front baffle, so I got a chisel and removed wood from the front baffle until the cones stopped hitting.

If there's enough spacing between the cone and the baffle, you'll be fine. This is for guitar, right?

Hi,

It will probably work fine if the 10" is a suitable guitar speaker.
Some like open backed, some closed back, some both, YMMV.

rgds, sreten.
