Default Baf stuffing > trouble?

For my mini monitor speakers, I will need to use some BAF/dacron stuffing.

The crossover is mounted inside the box, so the BAF might come iin contact with the resistors.

Is this a bad thing - could this cause problems? I'm thinking of melting or getting on fire?

I tested on a piece of BAF with a cig lighter, and it melts rather easely, even catches on fire...

Yes, that's possible if you drive your speakers with lots of power. I saw it in British minimonitors and cheap disco boxes.

If the resistors get hot enough to melt the dacron, they're under-rated. Increase the wattage rating and you won't have a problem.
